    Dishevelled cottage? Got that in spadesimage. Not to mention down at heel, over the hill, gone to seed cottage lookimage. It's that time of year when the wilder bits go from being pretty and relaxed to being untidy and unkempt and  well, wild, and everything flops and tries to grab you by the ankles as you go by, and the bottoms of your trousers get soaked by the dew or after a shower! Time fo some hacking back to show things who's boss!

    And a nice practical section on how to make your own container/trough out of concrete, sand etc for a miniature rock garden.

  • This week's tip from Mr D to be treated with caution.....'compost those potato haulms'.

    Nice sample of first (or second) early spuds, although I've never heard of anyone lifting a whole crop in one go, they won't keep......this is surly a crop that benefits from the plot to pot theory.
