Re: Forest gardening question

It sounds just like my kind of veg... Except that my garden is a bit small for it. Must try and get some seed for my friend with the big garden.

Re: Oh dear...

Sorry, blackbirds are feral pests competing with our native birds for food and space around here. Like parakeets here. I actually thought they hadn't got as far as Scotland yet - and just now I saw this on BBC: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-scotland-47911101/wild-parakeet-flock-causes-a-flap-in-...

Re: Strawberries

I don't suppose any of you know what varieties strawberries (plants, of course!) Lidl were selling? I bought a pack, to be shared with my friend, just to have a different variety, and now we can't remember what that was. Binned the pack, of course... (They only had three varieties - I'd probably rem...

Re: RAIN !!

Cold and raining here.... And it has been since yesterday. While I welcome the rain, I wish it would do that when I'm at work - so much to do in the garden! :mrgreen:

Update! Madam is still alive and well, and now has the only nesting place with room service. Food seems to be appreciated... :mrgreen: Laptop is back at home, and also alive and well. Clogged up with dust, and this particular type seems to be prone to overheating anyway. And I found the cat after th...

Only about half a meter above ground - open on two sides - in a garden that's used as passage between other gardens by quite a few cats. Now I am having to think up a way of maki...

Re: How much space do I need?

Right now I feel like I need a degree in horticulture... There is so much information and so many things to consider, I don´t really know where to start. I know - you can have too much information! Start small. A degree in horticulture doesn't guarantee that you are a perfect grower... I have a deg...
