Hints and Tips

Did you know...

Its to celebrate the benefit of composting and the aim is to encourage us all to be rotters!!


Top tip...

Add a small piece of horticultural fleece inside your pot before adding compost. This stops slugs and woodlice from climbing up into your plant and eating the roots.

Business shout out to...

Kingsharp

I had the pleasure of meeting Stuart just before Christmas. I gave him all my kitchen knives, scissors, and gardening tools that needed sharpening. He did an excellent job and I thought the price was very reasonable.

Eco corner...

Shell on Earth is a small family run business in Wales that uses crushed whelk shells for the garden. They are a great alternative to horticulture gravel and a good slug deterrent. A perfect showcase of reusing a waste product in my view.
