The Online Garden Fence - gardening discussions
Please remind everyone to check their bonfires for Wildlife this coming weekend!
Two pieces of fantastic news:
We managed to get a shed off freecycle, yes a whole working shed :-O! Was so chuffed. We have managed to get it all up except the roof as we need new feltings and the door as That_Animal wants to cut it so we can have it against the raised area. So, I am hoping to embark on our first green roof project and I need tips - has anyone done it? I have the basics but I'm sure there are things I haven't thought of...
Second, I have bought 3 blackberry bushes off ebay for a measly £10. Blackberries have a certain family tie for me and I can't wait to make jam next year, but I can't see me being able to keep all three. Does anybody want one? Please offer me a swap - plant troughs, honey suckle, white or cream clematis, labour.... I'm open to suggestions.
Finally a question... is it true that ash is good for the garden? Can it be composted?
On one last note, please feel free post your gardening tips/trades to the community and to pimp this about, I know its the wrong time of year but I'm sure there must be some gardening going on.
