As we haven't heard anything of Gregotyn for a while, I wrote to him and received a letter back from him yesterday. He is well and still doing his kindling, but he can't use the computer at the librar ...

I either trench, moving the earth to the sides between the rows, and earth up with that, or partly trench and add compost as well as earth in the earthing up. As Dpack says, don't use compost or a bed ...

Thanks for that Tahir. I agree; youngsters are educated to work on computers and in offices these days, and don't even thing about other work. I know a lot of people tend to look down on us working in ...

It did, but now they are talking about getting rid of the 48 hour a week cap. I know Maggie tried to erode the power of the unions, and it has been getting worse ever since.

I wouldn't bother. Admittedly I never get the best results, but if I did that they would be growing in rock chalk.

I hope the consignment is large enough to make that worth while Tahir. It is going to increase all costs in the UK I fear.

I am not sure if they thought about the consequences or not. Certainly it ...

I think it depends on your ground and weather. Although we are in the south, it isn't really safe to put them out in our colder microclimate before some time in April, depending on the way spring is l ...

A bit early, but we had to go to a garden centre for something else yesterday, and they had seed potatoes and onion sets in, so bought some. I was unsure about the potatoes, but as husband said, bette ...

There are several inconsistencies here.

Firstly, steel needs carbon. It can contain up to 2% depending on the use, and without carbon it is not steel. Therefore hydrogen on its own cannot be used t ...

Tahir, we used to have a Canda factory not far from us and both my SILs worked there at one time. It shut years ago, and of course C&A, who they made for, are long gone too. Is it the speed that p ...

Useful that you know about these things Tahir. More or less what I thought, but glad you know about it properly. Makes life very difficult if anyone wants to export which is exactly what we were afrai ...

I may be wrong, so you should look at the regulations very carefully to avoid problems, but I think if all the contents, which will include clay and glazes are produced in the UK, there is just VAT, b ...

Sounds useful for a large garden (or yard to you). Not many people in the UK have that much land, and certainly dogs tying themselves in knots is a well known problem even here. One method I have hear ...
