Thanks for replies

It was definitely sand in the lemon mix, it was on 'Big Dreams Small Spaces' last week. You would often hear advice to use 'sharp sand' as is has larger particles than clay and a ...

What's the story with drainage?

When the shows and books tell you to throw a handful of grit into the hole under Lillies or Tulips, does this really get the water away faster? Does the clay not jus ...

Greengage your link brings me to the reply page, could you re post?

Yeah sycamores are a disaster, one of the toughest weeds to pull out of a bed! I think they're only good when left to grow in the middle of a large, horseless field, several miles from any garden...

I was going for the 'throw everything at the wall and see what sticks' approach with the tree seeds. I've never planted tree seeds before so I'd be delighted if even one or two grew. I like hawthorn, ...

Hi
I am hoping to start building on a half acre site in the coming months and I want to get a few plants ready for planting in the eventual garden. I know it will be very expensive to buy all new pla ...
