Several years ago, i had a problem with something eating strawberries in my garden. I put out glue boards (2) to catch whatever it was, and caught 2 cardinals, both of which were killed by the glue boards. Not a pretty site….and i was devastated. I will never use glue boards again….and am always sure to plant enough for everyone/everything….. Do painted walls cheer up a garden? I use woodchips too, Paul Gautschi gardening method, but I experienced much of what Jill and others have (so thank you Jill for blogging your experience). In retrospect, I need to add more chips during the year like you do, because they do compost during winter-spring so that by summer, there’s no longer at least 4″ of chips, such that the soil below got very dry still especially during our prolonged hot spell in PA. The very bad news is the chemtrails above in our skies, containing metals like aluminum which stunts plant growth. The metals rain down and pollute. Now Paul thinks the chips filter out pollutants, so I may add much more than 4″ next year. Still, the soil takes time to build up healthiness with this method. The problem with my garden is that I’m getting a new home and it doesn’t exist yet. Dear Real Living: I read with significant consternation the Friday, Jan. 17, article headlined « Prevent a garden slugfest with baits, maintenance. » Perhaps my having attended Pentacle Theatre’s production of « Dr. Doolittle » inspired me to point out a gross injustice. The article itself was fine, but the accompanying photo clearly pictured a Pacific banana slug (Ariolimax columbianus). This species, by far the largest and most obvious slug in our parts, is NOT a garden pest. These critters feed on detritus and dead plant material, not on living vegetation. As such, they actually help clean up our yards, not exfoliate them. Unfortunately, the SJ article will most certainly encourage people not aware of these slugs’ good intentions to dispatch them at every opportunity. Bad for the garden, truly tragic for the banana slugs. — Alex Bourdeau, West Salem Thank you! Have you considered the water too? I’ve had the same problems with the curled tomato leaves and a lot of my plants just don’t grow. They come up fine but then get about 6 inches and look good but don’t grow. We water the garden from an irrigation ditch that is the waste water that runs off from the farm fields which could contain the same herbicides you’re talking about. I had finally decided it was the soil as the cats were contaminating it along with whatever was put in years previous. So, I put plants in tubs and some had the same problem Here in Montana we don’t get a lot of rain so have to use water from the irrigation ditch to water. So, now I’m thinking maybe it’s a combination of the soil and water as I don’t do much mulch but do put sheep and llama manure in my flower beds and garden. Thanks for sharing this! I was starting to think I was crazy as I’ve always had beautiful gardens in the past. Mulch is one of the unsung heroes of landscape design. It’s highly portable, malleable and, for certain types of mulch, you can even make your own! Areas shaded by large trees can be transformed overnight from eyesores to eye-openers by applying an attractive mulch. For all its value, there is much misunderstanding about the use of this landscaping solution, and I receive numerous questions about garden mulch from readers. There are as many types of landscaping mulch as there are landscape challenges. Mulch is sometimes used in conjunction with landscape fabrics. We have a garden that measures 17 feet by 20 feet. We want to pour cement for a 3-foot-wide sidewalk around the garden. To make the forms for the cement, we will need to buy some 2-by-4-inch lumber. How many feet of lumber will we need just for the perimeter of the walk? (Consider both the inside and outside perimeter.) If there are problems you need solutions too, we’ve got answers to lots of them. There’s help with what plants to use or even if what’s around the garden is causing a problem – we’ve advice on what to do there too!. But the Magic Garden, as it’s affectionately called, may not be in bloom for much longer. Stewart said an official with the post office told her last week the garden has to go. A USPS spokeswoman confirmed to 41 Action News there are concerns about overgrowth, adding the appearance is « not favorable. » The result is a scenario most gardeners at some point face: an ever-growing tower of pots and flats languishing in the shed, eventually to be thrown out. I’m daunted by the garden I’ve inherited My garden has no soil, just pots Grow disease-resistant varieties. Keep garden weed free and clean. In keeping with the constraint of a non-authoritative personality (Table 1: ISC2), The Idea Garden communicates its suggestions via a non-authoritative character we call the Gardening Consultant (Fig. 3). Imbuing such characters with a personality can evoke emotions in the user, such as humor, appreciation or social feelings, and when such emotions are positive, they can enhance the quality and creativity of users’ ideas (Lewis et al., 2011; Nass and Moon, 2000). Also, a recent study showed that end-user programmers respond well to instructions given in a non-authoritarian voice (Lee and Ko, 2011). Therefore, the Gardening Consultant’s icon looks like a tentative, quizzical face, intended to provoke mild humor. Some of the suggestions also contain questions, to reinforce this non-authoritarian personality. The Gardening Consultant understands the user’s problems in CoScripter about as much as a teacher gardener understands problems in a student gardener’s garden: a lot in general, but not that much about that particular student’s soil, neighboring plants, resident insects, etc. There’s no fighting against nature and plants will adapt to prevailing conditions. James has used native plantings in the garden and likewise, gardening with nature rather than against it gets results. It’s a gardener’s truism that you should always plant according to the conditions particular to your situation. Plant acid-loving plants in acid soils. If they need full sun, choose a sunny spot and if they need lots of water, forget gritty, parched soil. It needn’t be harder than that to start a garden off on a healthy footing. Do you have access to wood chips? We do deep wood chips the same way you use hay and it works great in our area. We have access to free chips easily though. You can’t mix them in the soil and you plant below them. They turn into compost and build up the top soil over time. We add fresh chips 2 times a year to the top. Sorry about the garden! Being in touch with nature improves your health and overall happiness. It is very relaxing to do things in nature and natural experiences can reduce stress and leave us feeling peaceful. There is no better way to get in touch with nature and natural rhythms than growing and caring for your own food. You don’t have to have a garden or even a yard, you can grow beautiful plants on your balcony or even in your living room. Even a few plants will produce a good amount of food for you to eat or share with friends and family. Strong shapes such as circles (arranged diagonally) will make a small garden appear wider and longer. At the heart of this garden is an open grassy circle (to give kids room to run about), while the smaller paved circles are used as seating/dining areas. Stepping stones lead to a tucked-away play area. Children will also love the shape of the allium plant, or ornamental onion. It flowers in early summer, likes most soils and is easy to care for.

You will find easily identifiable images of the most common problems. This then leads you to the best solution/s. If you are unable to find an answer, check our FAQs or Contact Us. Here is a quick troubleshooting guide to common gardening mistakes. 1. What inspired you to write this book? Since training as a gardener at a manor house in the East of England, I have been seen as an ‘expert’ by friends and neighbors. I am not an expert but I’m happy to share ideas. People show me around their gardens in despair, saying ‘What about this – and this?’. All of our gardens are different but many of the dilemmas are the same, such as ‘My garden is overlooked’ or ‘My garden is an awkward shape’. There is a pool of knowledge from great gardeners and garden writers, and I’ve tried to pass on some of those ideas. Really appreciate your sharing this with us! So good to know and be aware of…we do want natural soil and gardens. I’m sorry about your own! But gardens also provide a safe place for rodents, giving them shelter and readily available food sources.  This was an interesting possibility that came up when I started talking with my local gardening neighbor. Animal manures can be high in salts, which can cause issues when compost with high-levels of salt is added to a vegetable garden. However, I ruled out salt in my compost for these reasons: Kendra Wilson has access to some of the most remarkable gardens in England, while dissecting them for the American online publication Gardenista. With experience as a writer, picture editor and designer for Vogue, Condé Nast Traveler and Observer Food Monthly, she brings her unique perspective to the way gardens look and why they work. My garden is excessively hot and dry Check for grubs curled in soil at base of plants. Keep garden clean of debris and plant residue. Keep garden weed-free. Use cardboard collars around seedlings. Image source: veggiegardeningtips.com Very interested in this phenomenon. I’m in Virginia and just about every gardener in my neighborhood is complaining about their tomatoes this year. My sister who is a veteran gardener commented to me that she got her first ripe tomato in mid-July. She anticipated the usual progression of ripening tomatoes but the ripening just stopped. It took several weeks more for the tomatoes to ripen. I don’t like gardening in the cold I am turning 70 in a few months and Hubs is 74. So it may be that we are more susceptible than you younger gardeners. But it turns out oak leaves harbor mites, and we have been bitten by them. I had a terrible time with what I thought was chiggers in the garden, worse than I could remember since we started gardening here in 2011. And now I have a rash on my leg I cannot get to go away. I’ve been researching and I think that one of two things have happened: 1) I am being bitten by oak mites and not chiggers, and they are triggering an allergy of some kind; and/or 2) I have gotten fungus on my hands from the wood chip pile, and then scratched my chigger (or mite, whichever) bites, thus allowing the fungus to get into my skin. Hubs has had a rash on one of his legs for about six months. We’ve shown our rashes to doctors and they say, “contact dermatitis”. Though the ointments they prescribe do not help. Hubs had an additional problem in that he was shoveling wood chips from the pile and got in a cloud of “dust” which must’ve been fungal in nature. All night that night, he hacked and coughed. Fortunately, those symptoms were gone by morning, and he has since had a chest xray as the normal part of a checkup and everything was ok. But it was kind of scary. We’ll be going back to the doctor and telling them what we think might be causing our rashes now, since doctors these days won’t waste their time doing any detective work and it’s just all too easy to lump every skin problem into “contact dermatitis” and send the patient away. The only problem is, we have to wait almost a month to get in to see the doctor. Sheesh. So much can happen in a month. So I’m trying to think about what I might try in the meantime. Maybe tea tree oil, neat? Weeds are tough competitors in a garden. Learn about killing weeds before… As we gardeners say “NEXT year things will be better!” These articles have some garden design ideas for you. I have a constant battle with weeds in my garden. “We featured 29 other designers from all over the United States plus Australia,” he said. “These are problem-solving solutions with a universal appeal. In Chicago, how do you relate to a California garden – or the drought? We have gardens in New Jersey, New York, Texas. No matter where they are, they have something they can relate to.” If you are currently deep-mulching and having great results, you don’t really have anything to worry about, although I wouldn’t recommend adding any more hay to your garden until you are sure of its history. I have people emailing me CONSTANTLY with glowing reports of their deep hay mulch, and I’ve had beautiful results as well, so I don’t think *all* hay is a problem, and if you can verify your hay/straw is clean, I would absolutely still use it. Alternatively, creating a soakaway may be the answer. This requires a large hole at the lowest point of the garden and filled with rubble or broken bricks, and then covered with 300mm of soil. The soakaway will need to be quite large to have the desired effect – up to 1.8m (6 ft.) deep and the same across. There is not always a need for underground pipes to a soakaway although on land that has insufficient gradient to drain into a soakaway naturally, underground drain pipes of some sort will be required. Both clay and plastic pipes are available – the latter being easier to use and lighter to handle. Just wondering where your garden is located? Thanks. Are you in Richmond, Virginia? Thanks. Suzanne Flynn Gardening is a beautiful and healthy thing, right? Bright flowers, fresh food, dappled shade from a leafy tree… unfortunately, it also means lots of plastic. The gardening industry consumes hundreds of millions of pounds of plastic each year and, according to Penn State scientist James Garthe, only about 1% of that is recycled – a far lower rate than other industries (about 25% of plastic in milk jugs is recycled, for example). To be honest, this whole issue bothers me very, very deeply. Composted manure is cheap, it’s natural (most of the time), and is readily available. If we can no longer use it on our gardens, what then? The same goes for hay mulch… I can hardly stand the thought of being stripped of these options due to herbicides. I’m still ruminating on these thoughts… I’ll share more in an upcoming post. I garden on rock  I am sooo grateful for this post! I have had “bad luck” with my tomatos for the past 3 to 4 years, and I could not for the life of me figure out what I was doing wrong! Now I see that I had done the same as you had, adding manure (from my neighbors aged cow manure pile) to our garden. I used to grow beautiful tomatos, and beamed with pride at my quarts of lovely canned tomatos lined up on my shelf, waiting to be enjoyed in the midst of winter! I guess pride came before the fall! LOL! I have tried everything I could think of to try to deal with the problem, even moving all my tomatos to big pots on my porch, BUT I was still using soil from my garden! AhHa! My mom had a bumper crop of tomatos this year, using big pots on her porch, but the only soil she used was Miracle Gro Moisture Control soil, and I am going to do this next year! I don’t like having to buy soil when we have access to all the free manure to amend our soil, but, in light of this info, I think that we may have to, at least for our tomato plants. I have not noticed any of my other plants having the problems like the tomatos, so at least my garden will not be totally unusable next summer. Thank you so much for all the info!!! 🙂 Blessings, and Happy Fall! 🙂 Stéroïdes eracto VigRX Plus erogan Tonus Fortis Tonus Fortis Tonus Fortis eracto Tonus Fortis power up premium

Plant balcony gardens For those lucky enough to have a small balcony space or a little courtyard, fill theses spaces up with edibles such as chives, rosemary beets and other salad greens. You can plant these in wall mounted planters. I guess we were lucky and were only out about $800 in death dirt and dead plants. Local organic gardens lost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Thanks Dow. Thanks Monsanto. Helenah Girgis has a bumper crop in her garden this summer. My garden is like a child’s tea set Being in touch with nature improves your health and overall happiness. It is very relaxing to do things in nature and natural experiences can reduce stress and leave us feeling peaceful. There is no better way to get in touch with nature and natural rhythms than growing and caring for your own food. You don’t have to have a garden or even a yard, you can grow beautiful plants on your balcony or even in your living room. Even a few plants will produce a good amount of food for you to eat or share with friends and family. There were gardeners in the Bulkley Valley/Skeena Valley (BC, Canada) that used hay and straw/manure contaminated with Grazon (picloram) – widely used to combat broadleaf weeds. I was aware of that so could take precautions and did some testing with my straw for mulching and that I also use for my chickens. Everyone can do it at home to make sure it is not contaminated. Grazon has a long half life therefore gardeners in our area had to dig soil about 3 feet deep and exchange with not contaminated topsoil/compost mix and start new. Big job and sometimes quite expensive. Before adding compost/hay/straw/manure do the simple test and be sure your herbicide free Here is the link to an article explaining the bioassay method to test for herbicides http://northword.ca/features/environment/mean-manure-killer-compost-grazon-after-effects-in-the-bulkley-valley/ Hope this is of help! Monika Everything looked fine when I first put them in the garden. I planted my tomatoes (Amish Paste) in a new spot this year– normally they are along my fence, but this year, I had more plants so I stuck them in the area I usually plant my onions. I mulched them and watered them, and sat back to watch them grow. Solution: There are a few different options to help hold back soil such as rock gardens, retaining walls, erosion fabric or even terracing. The easiest option is to grow a deep-rooting ground cover such as pachysandra (shade) or creeping rosemary (sun). Those are your only options. If you love your yard/garden, suck it up and exterminate them yourself. If you can’t bear the thought of killing a mole, then you’d better get used to having your yard tilled up at random by blind, subterranean rodents. But not to worry. With photos and simple tips, she says, each chapter “is a garden tour…sharing the surprisingly simple ideas that can solve complex dilemmas.” And we’re off: My problem that I haven’t figured out yet is this: I planted my garden 6 weeks ago. I put out corn, purple hull peas, bush beans, potatoes, tomatoes, sunflowers, squash, cucumbers, and beet. Approximately 1/3 of everything is coming up. I see these little trails of semi-broken ground that appear to follow my rows and then skip to the next. I thought moles at first but the tunnels seem too narrow being about 1/2″ I have dug at the ends or beginnings of these trails and turn up nothing. I even replanted in the vacant areas only to have the same problem. Does anyone have any suggestions. I think you are correct in your conclusion of poisoning. I have had similar sstrange-looking plants in my garden over the years when I used the local fair’s compost in my garden area. This year I had whole plantings never germinate. (BTW: the word is ‘allude’). Before you begin, you need to narrow your wish-list to your top priorities. In a bigger garden, for example, you might have a barbecue area; in a small garden, you may have to settle for creating a paved space for a portable barbecue and devise a storage plan when it’s not in use. Small family gardens are hardest to plan as you’ll need to find room for a play area. In the years I’ve been advocating for the deep mulch method of gardening, I’ve had a couple people ask if I’ve ever had problems using non-organic hay. We get our hay from a variety of sources, and looking back, I’m almost certain some of it had to be sprayed at some point. However, as I always had thriving gardens by using our compost and hay mulch, I figured people who were concerned about non-organic hay or non-organic animal manure were worrying unnecessarily. I was wrong. Unfortunately, gardeners are often obstinate optimists in such matters. They want to start composting NOW, don’t have any hoarded leaves and ‘Know I’m Wrong’. At least until rats show up wearing party hats and wielding little Wind-in-the-Willows dinnerware. We have made a few inquiries via the internet and bought a guidance pack from WHSmith. It would seem to me, however, that because my son receives a regular fixed rate and has no say as to what jobs he undertakes, he has to be considered an employee of our friend. I think cleaners can count themselves as self-employed and undertaking gardening doesn’t seem so far removed. “Hang the garden makeover; anyone who favors natural, twiggy plant supports can have an authentic English cottage garden,” she wrote in an early post, which breezily laid out the history of the cottage garden, explained the differences among various willow arbors and supports, and offered design suggestions for incorporating same into a landscape.

We’ve never tried the deep mulch method of gardening, but we do use cover crops like winter rye and medium red clover to build up the organic matter in our soil. This year we planted the clover in between rows and hills in the garden with great results. I never would have thought of herbicides or pesticides on hay. How disappointing if that’s what it turns out to be… Garden Gift Hub is one of the most thoughtful and interesting places on the web to find original and useful gardening and nature inspired products. To manage pests and nurture bees – plants like mustard and marigolds are very effective in countering the most destructive of all crop pests, root knot nematodes. Brassicas emit biochemicals from their roots, which can reduce root disease in other food crops. However, it is important to rotate brassica plantings in your garden with other species to avoid a buildup of these chemicals. Cover crops can also serve as trap crops for pests to keep them away from your vegetables. Alternatively, they can also be host plants for beneficial predators. Flowering cover crops can also attract and feed pollinators. This will boost production in your garden while feeding the all-important honey bee. These creatures are really struggling around the globe at present. A condition called Colony Collapse Disorder is decimating beehives, to the point that beekeeping is no longer a viable profession in some regions. Insecticides called neonicotinoids, GMO crops and electromagnetic radiation from phone towers seem to have combined to mess up the immunity and communication skills of these critically important creatures. Einstein suggested that the world lasts just four years in the absence of the honey bee and their pollination gift. Your garden can serve as a chemical-free haven, to help preserve our bees. Make a plan of what you want to grow. A soil test is a great place to start, then determine the growing conditions; is it full sun, part sun or shade? Have fun with your new gardening project! There can be a few reasons for yellowing leaves. This article will help you pinpoint the cause. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/tomato/yellow-tomato-leaves.htm In search of a publisher for his latest book, Sacramento garden designer Michael Glassman found a perfect fit an ocean away – in Australia. The result is a problem-solving work of art with built-in appeal on both sides of the Pacific. Jill, I’ve used the deep mulch method now for two seasons. A local tree company brings truckloads of wood chips to me free of charge whenever I need them. They are happy to have a place to dump the clippings so it’s a win-win. Of course there is no knowing what’s been sprayed on the trees (hopefully not any since it’s mainly trimmings from roadside power lines) but at least I know it’s not broad leaf herbicide that’s being consumed by grazing animals. The diversity of organic matter is also very beneficial to the soil and over time supports perennial vegetables, fruit and nut trees. It’s true there is a huge benefit to deep mulch gardening with the decrease in watering and weeding. There are other issues that I’m figuring out as I go along but so far so good and I plan to continue with this method. My garden is under siege  Hi Jill, I’m so sorry about your garden. I’m a hydroponic/ soil gardener, but I’m 100% organic so I haven’t had that issue. Chalk it up to being hyper-attentive to what goes into our garden, courtesy of extreme food allergies and sensitivities. Something you might want to look into as a way to put nutrients back in your soil (in the event you can’t find organic fertilizers) is rotating your crops and beds. Alfalfa and soy are often used as a reconditioning crop every 3rd year, as they are very rich in nitrogen and other nutrients. You may want to consider having a few different planting areas and while two have crops, the third has alfalfa or soy. At the end of the season, till it in and let it compost over the winter. It was the old way of controlling weeds and restoring nutrients before herbicides and liquid fertilizers took over the mainstream. I am sooo grateful for this post!

Thank you so much for all the info!!! 🙂 Blessings, and Happy Fall! 🙂 New garden owners panic sometimes panic about things they’ve heard; received wisdom can be quite detrimental. Wisteria, for instance, has a reputation for being difficult. A brief explanation that I received while training at Cottesbrooke Hall has always stuck; in its logic, it is not difficult at all. The same goes for roses, which I also talk about. More is to be gained from doing, than reading, and the friendly tone of my book will hopefully get people to open the back door, secateurs in hand.

The foods to help your soil microbes survive and thrive are now readily available for home gardeners. The bacterial component of your soil loves simple carbohydrates. Molasses is a good option, but even table sugar is of benefit because we are chasing the energy factor more than the extra minerals found in molasses. The ideal dose rates for both involve two tablespoons of either sugar or molasses, in a watering can full of water, applied to 10 m2 of soil. Brazilian agronomist Aldemir Caligari is responsible for a revolutionary cover cropping finding with wonderful outcomes in agriculture. However, this super-productive strategy, called cocktail cover cropping, is equally valid for home gardeners seeking to fast-track improvements in soil structure and humus generation. Solution: Many gardeners would not consider shade a problem as there are dozens upon dozens of shade-loving plants. Fill a shady landscape with hosta, hellebores, bleeding hearts, hollies, azaleas, boxwood, ferns, ginger, English ivy, hydrangea and ajuga.

Therefore in order to establish if there is an ethical obligation for the curtailment of fraudulent activity we will have to look elsewhere for inspiration. In this, we might turn our attention to the notion of trust, and a comparison to a different form of market – the pawnbroker. First, in establishing their ‘walled garden’ application marketplaces, Apple and Google have at least implicitly created a statement of trust between themselves and the consumer: content is curated and verified, therefore it should, to a degree, be deemed trustworthy. “We featured 29 other designers from all over the United States plus Australia,” he said. “These are problem-solving solutions with a universal appeal. In Chicago, how do you relate to a California garden – or the drought? We have gardens in New Jersey, New York, Texas. No matter where they are, they have something they can relate to.” The critical points occur when $\dfrac{dC}{dx} = 0$: \[ \begin{align*} \dfrac{dC}{dx} = 0 &= -\dfrac{600}{x^2} + 2 \\[8px] -2 &= -\dfrac{600}{x^2} \\[8px] x^2 &= \dfrac{600}{2} \\[8px] &= 300 \\[8px] x &= \sqrt{300} \end{align*} \] Note that we choose the positive square root since the width x cannot be negative. Also note that we could have a critical point where $\dfrac{dC}{dx} = -\dfrac{600}{x^2} + 2$ is undefined, which occurs when $x=0$. That answer makes no physical sense, though, since then Sam’s garden would have zero area. We thus continue our analysis with the single critical point $$x = \sqrt{300}$$ Hi everyone, I have been feeding the birds in my garden for sometime, i don’t have a great variety of birds, mostly blackbird & sparrows but its nice to see them feeding. However, it looks like someone near by,( i don’t know who), has acquired a couple of cats  and i have seen them in my garden. I have a greyhound and I am sure that if the cats get chased by him they won’t be back in a hurry however my dog does not go in front garden as it is not secure. yesterday my worst fears were confirmed when I came in and found feathers and remains of a bird in the front garden > I am so upset, and I don’t know whether to carry on putting food out now. I have to say I am not a big fan of cats because of the sheer amount of harm they do to wildlife, a lot of problems could be solved by people keeping them in from dawn till dusk which is when they kill the most birds. From past experience things to deter cats never seem to work, but if anyone has any ideas i would be pleased to hear them 🙂 Lydia’s box garden. This can be very frustrating! https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/deer/deer-repellents.htm Epson salt provides the plant with the magnesium it needs to produce the “green” in the leaves. Put a small circle of ES around the plant. Don’t forget to water it in. That way the plant can take what it needs when it needs it. I use the triage method and cut those dead or dying leaves off the plant. With regards to my tomato plants this year, I cut off leaves at the lower end of the plant and buried the roots deeper then before. In some cases I planted the stem of the plant on it’s side. This way it gave the plant more area to produce roots. You should see the stems this season,larger then I’ve seen before. Two fingers thick, easily. With regards to the mulching,I was told that saw dust robbed the soil of nitrogen. However are saying that and purchasing a truck load we were committed to using the saw dust and continue to do so. Saw no evidence of that happening. Mulching still keeps the weeds down to a min, as well as protecting our plants from the hot sun. We have raised beds and at least half of the bed is composed of leaves from our back yard We use compost that was a 50/50 mix of leaves and grass,then topped it off with a 0.05 mixture of compost and manure. Then we added an evergreen mixture of top soil to bring the level of the soil to our desired level. I know everyone has their preferences, but we use miracle-grow once a week and our garden is thicker,greener and taller every year. We also have started to make a compost tea. We’ll get back with those results later on. One other thought,at the end of last years season we took what was left from our compost pile and spread it over our raised beds. We think that has helped out too. While it seems that extra work has paid off in that area of gardening soil development, garden pest such as Japanese beetles are eating up our rose bush’s,blackberries and now they are visiting our green bean plants. Hand picking was fine when there was a few, but this year they brought there whole family for a visit. FYI- Hand picking, Shop van and neeme oil. beginning in the morning. Some success.

Anyway good luck and good gardening to you all from Southern Patriots Victory gardens in the homeland of America. Be prepared for what’s to come! Good Day mate !

My garden is like a bog I, too, know your pain and despair. We live on the western edge of Wyoming at 6000′. Our sons raise cattle, so left-over hay and manure from the cows and horses was easy to obtain. About mid way through the 2014 gardening season, after mulching my peas they just stopped. Hmm, must have been the heat. The beans were just a fair crop that year. 2015, no potatoes, no beans, no peas. They all came up beautifully, but when they started to put out roots – they became stunted, yellowed, twisted, and eventually died. The corn wasn’t bothered. Nor the pumpkin. I thought slugs, virus, disease, too much water. By the end of 2015, research was pointing to contamination. This year, began the same way. Transplants were healthy until put into the garden. Seeds germinate then look awful. After much research – I stopped using the manure tea (it seemed to be the worst culprit – maybe because it is concentrated). Planted all the radish seed I had. The ones I didn’t pick are the size of large potatoes and up to 4′ tall. Started more brassica transplants and planted them all over the garden. Interestingly, where I planted radishes or brassicas next to the peas, the peas actually produced a few peas and did not die immediately. Also, putting fermented molasses water on the potatoes seemed to help a little. We are now looking at cover crops as a way to help remediate. And all the wood stove ash will be dumped in the garden this winter. Healthy growth is the mainstay of every garden. Why design something that looks great on the drawing board but fails to provide the right environment for plants to thrive? You end up wasting time, money, energy and possibly even harming your garden environment. When growing food indoors, you place your seeds or plants in planters or pots and use high quality soil that you can buy at the farmers market or in any home improvement store or gardening center. By far the most important part of growing plants indoors is to keep your plants in a sunny place. Healthy soil, adequate water and plenty of natural light will ensure that your vegetables thrive and have a bountiful harvest. I was informed of such a possibility two years ago when I tried to straw bale garden and it was an epic flop. I was told to use alfalfa hay only as that is obviously not sprayed with a broadleaf herbicide. Try that! but the metals get into our water supply so now we need filters to water the garden… not sure how to do that yet. We’re in a new build house and are now outside of our warranty (by over 12 months). The garden has been an issue since we moved in (2012) specifically with drainage. Whilst in the warranty, we had the drainage re done and this was eventually completed in spring 2015 (outside warranty but delayed on new build company’s part due to waiting for warmer weather and deadlines on the new houses on the estate). Fast forward a year, the garden still doesn’t drain properly. We’ve got in a professional to give us a quote on sorting it and was willing to pay ourselves to get it sorted. It’s come back at £7k to fix and landscape it better than what it’s been done when we first moved in. Landscaper is suggesting that the soil is the problem and the drainage not being right. I was willing to pay a bit to sort it but now I’m annoyed that we’ve paid all this money for a house and basically haven’t got what we want; what’s worse, we need to pay around £7k to fix without adding any value. Have we got a legal case to take this back to the new build company? I hear from neighbours that they’ve got similar problems with drainage and gardens being ruined, but not sure if we individually have a case, or if we have a collective claim as it seems that when they’ve developed the site, they’ve not accounted for the fact they’re building into a hill. The drainage is shocking. I’m pissed off as this was our « dream home » and for 3 years we haven’t had a proper garden. Any recommendations of solicitors who deal with this kind of thing would be very welcome. We luckily have a source that swears they assay each load of compost before they use in the 3- and 4-way garden soil mixes. We used them again this year when we remade the front yards raised beds. Everything we planted flourished. Large front gardens: what’s the point? I have trouble with weeds and brush in the garden. I hope this book could help me with these problem Creating a two-level garden linked by steps and flanked by split-level pools fed with waterfalls gives the space more interest. The design is bordered by raised flowerbeds and built-in bench seating, which can seat more guests than garden chairs. A colourful buddleia is an ideal standard plant for this kind of garden; easy to care for, it will attract lots of bees and butterflies when it flowers. The most important benefit of fungi, however, is their capacity to create crumb structure in your soil. This is the most desirable characteristic for garden soils. A soil with crumb structure can breathe freely while allowing ease of root growth and ideal water infiltration. Earthworms move unimpeded through these aggregates, as do beneficial nematodes and microarthropods. You can plunge your hands deep into this medium and it smells good enough to eat. Gardening is pure pleasure when you have achieved this holy grail of good soil management, but it is not possible without nurturing your fungal workforce. Life Force® Instant Humus™ involves super-concentrated soluble humic acid granules. Two teaspoons of these black crystals are added to a watering can full of water, and applied to 10 m2 of soil. You will almost hear your fungi rejoice! I use blackcat firecrackers to scare off strays, possums, etc. Maybe they will work for deer also? Also, I mulched my garden 2 years ago and everything died. I was told mulching robbed it of it’s nitrogen. This year I shoveled in a truckload of mushroom compost and it is still not doing well. I suppose next I’ll have to plant a bunch of clover to restore the nitrogen. Reader points out the benefits of the banana slugs in gardens These articles have some garden design ideas for you. My garden is like a bog Extractive agriculture has seen the long-term, persistent removal of these broad spectrum trace minerals with no replacement. In fact, it could be argued that most plants no longer have the associated hormonal support to achieve their genetic potential. The exception is the seaweed plant, which exists in a soup comprising the perfect balance of all minerals. Consequently, this plant contains forty times more of these hormonal helpers than land plants. What does this mean for this sea plant? Well, it is the fastest-growing plant on the planet, producing 30 cm of new growth every day. We can boost our hormone-deficient, garden plants with seaweed fertiliser. In this context, kelp becomes an essential supplement for a healthy, vigorous, food-producing garden.

One of the most common questions I get asked as I traverse the country hosting garden workshops is, “what do I do about possums?” The Kitchen Garden Grower’s Guide is a veritable encyclopaedia that provides simple guidance to the kitchen gardener and cook to bring fresh, inexpensive, and healthy food from your garden to your table. Thanks for the follow up. Sounds like the plants are on the right track. Happy gardening! “We featured 29 other designers from all over the United States plus Australia,” he said. “These are problem-solving solutions with a universal appeal. In Chicago, how do you relate to a California garden – or the drought? We have gardens in New Jersey, New York, Texas. No matter where they are, they have something they can relate to.” Why does an industry that should be green have such a horrible track record when it comes to plastic, and what’s a home gardener to do? Solution: Many gardeners would not consider shade a problem as there are dozens upon dozens of shade-loving plants. Fill a shady landscape with hosta, hellebores, bleeding hearts, hollies, azaleas, boxwood, ferns, ginger, English ivy, hydrangea and ajuga. Lydia’s box garden. A native New Yorker, she spent three decades in the Midwest before recently returning to the East Coast; that gave her a different gardening perspective to Glassman’s California experience and broadened the book’s overall appeal, he said. Question 3 is something that I’m starting to see as the bridge between “Length 12” and “Length x” from the original problem statement.  If you can do it with 1000, then you can do it with x.  Question 6 was also nice because some students used their formula to show that the garden length would not be a whole number if it used 2011 tiles, while other students made the reasonable observation that every garden tile number is even.

Hi Jill, I’m so sorry about your garden. I’m a hydroponic/ soil gardener, but I’m 100% organic so I haven’t had that issue. Chalk it up to being hyper-attentive to what goes into our garden, courtesy of extreme food allergies and sensitivities. Something you might want to look into as a way to put nutrients back in your soil (in the event you can’t find organic fertilizers) is rotating your crops and beds. Alfalfa and soy are often used as a reconditioning crop every 3rd year, as they are very rich in nitrogen and other nutrients. You may want to consider having a few different planting areas and while two have crops, the third has alfalfa or soy. At the end of the season, till it in and let it compost over the winter. It was the old way of controlling weeds and restoring nutrients before herbicides and liquid fertilizers took over the mainstream. Stewart brought her gardening talents to the concrete jungle back in 2008. That’s when she made an agreement with management at the Westport post office to plan a community garden in front of the facility. To help manage weeds – if you have raised beds in your garden (and you probably should for optimal drainage), then the inter-row could host a cocktail cover crop rather than providing a haven for weeds. You are effectively “choosing your weeds” in this instance, by replacing unwanted invaders with functional plants offering multiple benefits.

Move garden to sunnier location. Gardening is a beautiful and healthy thing, right? Bright flowers, fresh food, dappled shade from a leafy tree… unfortunately, it also means lots of plastic. The gardening industry consumes hundreds of millions of pounds of plastic each year and, according to Penn State scientist James Garthe, only about 1% of that is recycled – a far lower rate than other industries (about 25% of plastic in milk jugs is recycled, for example). At some point during your horticultural career, you will come across a garden problem or two. Whether that’s struggling to keep your plants looking their best, or trying to get rid of annoying pests who seem determined to eat what you’ve grown. It’s totally normal to encounter these problems and luckily we’re here to help you solve them. We have plenty of tools and tonics in stock to help you keep your flowers, vegetables and fruits strong and healthy. « The $10 billion-a-year U.S. horticulture industry is based on cheap oil and cheap plastics, » writes Beth Botts in the Chicago Tribune. Botts has won awards for her eloquent writing on the problems of garden plastics. Chief among them is the lack of standards for materials, colors or sizes of pots and other garden plastics. Often the materials used are not even identified — making them devilishly hard to recycle. And the industry shies away from reuse because of the risks of spreading plant disease. There can be a few reasons for yellowing leaves. This article will help you pinpoint the cause. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/tomato/yellow-tomato-leaves.htm Everything looked fine when I first put them in the garden. I planted my tomatoes (Amish Paste) in a new spot this year– normally they are along my fence, but this year, I had more plants so I stuck them in the area I usually plant my onions. I mulched them and watered them, and sat back to watch them grow. In this area we have dug down and replaced it with new topsoil, dug compost and manure in, we also have put a sump in which on clay isn’t the best but it takes some of the water which would otherwise run towards the house (slope on the garden is towards the house).

It would appear the tomato problem is a nation wide issue. If that’s the case, is it solar activity, chemtrails, acid rain, etc???? Many gardeners in my area who never use compost or mulch and are having the same problem. Lettuce and hostas are popular food for slugs, which can nibble garden plants to pieces. Aminopyralids take 3-7 years to break down. The fastest way to remediate the problem is to remove as much as possible of the contaminated organic material. Contact with soil microbes is necessary to get the aminopyralid to biodegrade. So keeping the soil moist and turning it often so the offending organic matter is always in contact with soil microbes so that it breaks down as quickly as possible. Composting won’t break down aminopyralids. It has to be soil. Also you could try to grow something like lettuce to see if your whole garden is contaminated or just a small area. Any plant affected with aminopyralid will contaminate any soil it comes into contact with. Aminopyralids pass through animals unchanged so the manure is also unusable. I have a lack of time for upkeep and need a garden that will be somewhat self-sufficient. Do you long for a beautiful garden but hate weeding? Are you intimidated by roses or worried about watering? Do your neighbor’s trees block your sunlight? Is your outdoor space too big? Too small? An awkward shape? Or maybe you just don’t know where to begin…  Most are problems gardeners experience almost anywhere, but some problems are more specific to our area. In our resource guide, we have followed an integrated pest management approach where simple, safe, and less invasive strategies are listed first. This is the same approach we use with visitors to our walk-in Plant Doctor service located in the Kemper Center for Home Gardening as well as with callers to our phone-in Horticultural Answer Service. Recommendations using chemical pesticides, though not excluded in an integrated pest management approach, generally appear lower down in the list of recommended strategies. Strictly organic strategies are pointed out. You can look up pest and problems by plant or pest category. In the years I’ve been advocating for the deep mulch method of gardening, I’ve had a couple people ask if I’ve ever had problems using non-organic hay. We get our hay from a variety of sources, and looking back, I’m almost certain some of it had to be sprayed at some point. However, as I always had thriving gardens by using our compost and hay mulch, I figured people who were concerned about non-organic hay or non-organic animal manure were worrying unnecessarily. I was wrong. Unfortunately, a lot of people start to think about composting in the Spring. They’re anxious to get out in the garden, have heard—or know—that compost is a great natural fertilizer, soil amendment and disease preventer, and want to get a pile going. But nine times out of ten—maybe more like 9.9 times out of ten—they don’t have THE most important ingredient: Shredded fall leaves. My garden is overlooked on several sides This year was our first year having a vegetable garden. We planted the tomatoes in Spring, and in just a few months we were overloaded with tomatoes. HUNDREDS of them. We hired some gardeners to fill the veggie beds with the right mix of soil, hay, etc. We STILL have tomatoes coming! They are AMAZING!! Sometimes there will be problems in the vegetable garden. There is always a cause and there is often a cure or control. Two very good things happened in 2012. Soon after the launch of Gardenista (No. 1), UK-based Kendra Wilson became our first contributing writer. She immediately took our readers—and me—by the hand and began to gently reassure us there is nothing scary or complicated about gardening. While a living cover is preferable, at least a mulch provides food and protection to the soil and its inhabitants. Nutrition gardeners gradually embrace this nurturing instinct, as they develop a genuine reverence for their soil. They become soil lovers. It is guaranteed that there is at least one bucket such that it is possible to water the garden in integer number of hours using only this bucket. Are there any space-stretching tricks I can use? An attractive standard plant, urn or statuette at the end of the garden will provide a focal point and draw the eye to the garden’s furthest part, tricking you into seeing it as larger than it is. Benches with lift-up lids give more storage. If you need a play area for children, swap tiles for decking in the lower part of the garden and sink a hidden sandpit beneath a section of it. ? The major feature of the M&G Garden 2017 at the Chelsea Flower Show is sustainability. Drawing on the inspiration of the Maltese landscape, garden designer James Basson has used the concept of a quarry as the basis of the garden. Each microclimate within the quarry mirrors the challenges faced by many gardeners. In Malta the scorching sun, searing heat and drought conditions can cause problems to plant growth, whereas shade, excessively wet soil or even exposure to cold wind can test most gardeners and plants alike. Paint walls and fences white to make space appear bigger, keep planting in borders low to make the garden seem wider, and go for a low-level chest storage unit instead of a tall shed. I garden on rock  Answer: It won’t be possible to completely eradicate the grasshoppers, but there are some things you can do to keep their population low enough to prevent any serious damage to your yards and gardens. A range of products and hand-picked gardening offers exclusively for Saga customers. We’ve never tried the deep mulch method of gardening, but we do use cover crops like winter rye and medium red clover to build up the organic matter in our soil. This year we planted the clover in between rows and hills in the garden with great results. I never would have thought of herbicides or pesticides on hay. How disappointing if that’s what it turns out to be… What’s the secret behind creating a successful small garden design? Planning, of course! Working to a detailed layout drawing, that’s to scale and taken into account the practicalities of the space will save you time and money in the long run. This article looks at practical aspects of designing a small garden but do take a look at our gallery packed with small garden ideas if you’re looking for something more inspirational. My garden is too long and narrow It is guaranteed that there is at least one bucket such that it is possible to water the garden in integer number of hours using only this bucket. Container gardening Large front gardens: what’s the point? Will it take much looking after? Raised beds can be much easier to look after than borders and you won’t need to get on all fours to tend them. The rest of this garden is given over to paving, which will only need an occasional sweep. This year we will be launching a unique online garden design tutorial package at a fraction of the cost of any design fee.  We have created videos showing you how to survey your garden and how to use the simple basic principles of garden design. Together, we will design your very own outdoor living space which will lead you … up your own garden path! If rock gardening is not your cup of tea, you might consider the xeriscape as a practical alternative to more traditional yard designs. Although xeriscaping is associated with drought-plagued areas, don’t underestimate the benefits it can bring to yards far-removed from the desert. You can save yourself time and money by planting low-maintenance, drought-tolerant perennials, in addition to grouping plants with similar irrigation needs together in your yard.

There is great information out there. http://www.veganicpermaculture.com/agroecology.html Happy gardening! !! I keep reading everyone’s posts because I thought I was the only one with strange results. I also am interested in hearing about other woodchippers. I have the following comments to add: 1. I’ve been a woodchipper (Paul Gautschi, Back to Eden) for three years now and every year the soil gets better as the plants reveal…but one has to be patient with the process, like investing over the years before payoff. Once payoff happens (the right balance of soil chemistry with microorganisms), less work and more productivity is expected. So fertilize your plants to compensate before that magic year which I will be doing in my fourth year. 2. I didn’t plant my tomatoes deeply enough below the 4″ woodchip layer — my mistake — and my results were very disappointing with curly leaves, too much die off. I put new plants in at the beginning of August at a deep level, and they’re doing well, except yellowing at bottom…we haven’t had much rain here. 3. my potatoes are doing excellent — buried deep below the chips. 4. Chips are challenging with root crops while the soil is still building, so I’m doing a garden bed without chips next year and for several years more. 5. there is definitely a larger picture in which the pollution of our skies and water is a factor, which makes me want to stick with chips for greater protection, though our productivity may still be affected. The pollution dries out the soil and hurts plant growth. 6, yes I think one has to do their best to avoid chips which were herbicide-treated before cut down. 7. I would like to get chickens to help with the gardening tilling and fertilizing. Malta has made significant inroads into improving sustainability, as reflected in the M&G Garden 2017. These lessons – compost more, recycle water wherever possible, grow native plants – are ones easily brought home to any garden for the wider benefit of the environment. James’ design proves that putting the right plant in the right place creates a healthy environment. Crucially, they will inspire garden lovers to turn what were once problem patches into areas of opportunity and growth. If you are currently deep-mulching and having great results, you don’t really have anything to worry about, although I wouldn’t recommend adding any more hay to your garden until you are sure of its history. I have people emailing me CONSTANTLY with glowing reports of their deep hay mulch, and I’ve had beautiful results as well, so I don’t think *all* hay is a problem, and if you can verify your hay/straw is clean, I would absolutely still use it. Rake out thatch in September or early spring with a garden rake or scarifier. To prevent it coming back, collect the grass clippings if your mower has a grass box, or rake up all clippings after each mowing. As you can see from the attached photos, we require some privacy by the low fence, but would like to keep the garden bed as you approach from the street side (seen on the right in the photograph). We’re not worried about keeping the grass – paving and gravel are fine. We look forward to seeing what you can come up with for us. Joan and Jim Gooch, Tauranga To manage pests and nurture bees – plants like mustard and marigolds are very effective in countering the most destructive of all crop pests, root knot nematodes. Brassicas emit biochemicals from their roots, which can reduce root disease in other food crops. However, it is important to rotate brassica plantings in your garden with other species to avoid a buildup of these chemicals. Cover crops can also serve as trap crops for pests to keep them away from your vegetables. Alternatively, they can also be host plants for beneficial predators. Flowering cover crops can also attract and feed pollinators. This will boost production in your garden while feeding the all-important honey bee. These creatures are really struggling around the globe at present. A condition called Colony Collapse Disorder is decimating beehives, to the point that beekeeping is no longer a viable profession in some regions. Insecticides called neonicotinoids, GMO crops and electromagnetic radiation from phone towers seem to have combined to mess up the immunity and communication skills of these critically important creatures. Einstein suggested that the world lasts just four years in the absence of the honey bee and their pollination gift. Your garden can serve as a chemical-free haven, to help preserve our bees.

What if you’re time poor or you don’t have the space to maintain a large garden to grow your own food? One of the most common questions I get asked as I traverse the country hosting garden workshops is, “what do I do about possums?” Plant balcony gardens For those lucky enough to have a small balcony space or a little courtyard, fill theses spaces up with edibles such as chives, rosemary beets and other salad greens. You can plant these in wall mounted planters. Thank you! Have you considered the water too? I’ve had the same problems with the curled tomato leaves and a lot of my plants just don’t grow. They come up fine but then get about 6 inches and look good but don’t grow. We water the garden from an irrigation ditch that is the waste water that runs off from the farm fields which could contain the same herbicides you’re talking about. I had finally decided it was the soil as the cats were contaminating it along with whatever was put in years previous. So, I put plants in tubs and some had the same problem Here in Montana we don’t get a lot of rain so have to use water from the irrigation ditch to water. So, now I’m thinking maybe it’s a combination of the soil and water as I don’t do much mulch but do put sheep and llama manure in my flower beds and garden. Thanks for sharing this! I was starting to think I was crazy as I’ve always had beautiful gardens in the past. sterydy BioBelt vigrx Maca peruana Celuraid Muscle power up premium Zevs Masculin Active Testogen Stéroïdes

Mushroom soil is not good for a garden. I put a load of about 5 tons in mine 15 years ago. Worst garden crops ever and tons of weed. Found out that mushroom soil is composted horse manure – loads of weed seeds! Mushroom soil is not good for a garden. I put a load of about 5 tons in mine 15 years ago.

Flooding my garden The key to your small-space urban gardening success has a lot to do with the types of pots or planters you select. We’ve never tried the deep mulch method of gardening, but we do use cover crops like winter rye and medium red clover to build up the organic matter in our soil. This year we planted the clover in between rows and hills in the garden with great results. I never would have thought of herbicides or pesticides on hay. How disappointing if that’s what it turns out to be… Brazilian agronomist Aldemir Caligari is responsible for a revolutionary cover cropping finding with wonderful outcomes in agriculture. However, this super-productive strategy, called cocktail cover cropping, is equally valid for home gardeners seeking to fast-track improvements in soil structure and humus generation. Mulch is one of the unsung heroes of landscape design. It’s highly portable, malleable and, for certain types of mulch, you can even make your own! Areas shaded by large trees can be transformed overnight from eyesores to eye-openers by applying an attractive mulch. For all its value, there is much misunderstanding about the use of this landscaping solution, and I receive numerous questions about garden mulch from readers. There are as many types of landscaping mulch as there are landscape challenges. Mulch is sometimes used in conjunction with landscape fabrics. Remedies: Some garden beds don’t need to be fertilized but rather have their PH levels checked and have compost added. Use a natural and organic fertilizer whenever possible. Does an area of your garden need a revamp? Garden editor and landscape designer Carol Bucknell will come up with a plan for some lucky readers.

Our sons raise cattle, so left-over hay and manure from the cows and horses was easy to obtain. About mid way through the 2014 gardening season, after mulching my peas they just stopped. Hmm, must have been the heat. The beans were just a fair crop that year. 2015, no potatoes, no beans, no peas. They all came up beautifully, but when they started to put out roots – they became stunted, yellowed, twisted, and eventually died. The corn wasn’t bothered. Nor the pumpkin. I thought slugs, virus, disease, too much water. By the end of 2015, research was pointing to contamination. This year, began the same way. Transplants were healthy until put into the garden. Seeds germinate then look awful. After much research – I stopped using the manure tea (it seemed to be the worst culprit – maybe because it is concentrated). Planted all the radish seed I had. The ones I didn’t pick are the size of large potatoes and up to 4′ tall. Started more brassica transplants and planted them all over the garden. Interestingly, where I planted radishes or brassicas next to the peas, the peas actually produced a few peas and did not die immediately. Also, putting fermented molasses water on the potatoes seemed to help a little. We are now looking at cover crops as a way to help remediate. And all the wood stove ash will be dumped in the garden this winter. Those are your only options. If you love your yard/garden, suck it up and exterminate them yourself. If you can’t bear the thought of killing a mole, then you’d better get used to having your yard tilled up at random by blind, subterranean rodents. Thanks for the info, it amazing what you learn on here, I would never have thought a sparrow hawk would be around in gardens in built up area. We used Milestone weed killer in the past on our spotted knapweed. It is an aminopyralid. The label is very specific with the warnings about plant sensitivity, even certain pine and fir trees are sensitive. If you spray a pasture, animals do not have to be removed and there is no meat/milk withdrawl (just quoting the labels, here), but they do warn about moving the animals to a pasture with susceptible species (clover, alfalfa, etc.) within a certain number of days and all manure must be aged for at least one year before being used on susceptible crops. Unfortunately, unless we grow everything ourselves, we never know what has been used. I did have an issue like that one year, and it was way back when I had used the aminopyralid spray and planted some extra tomato plants outside the general garden area and that is exactly how they looked. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/clematis/clematis-with-yellow-leaves.htm Hi Jill, If you’re going to do raised beds, look into square foot gardening if you haven’t already. The author Mel Bartholomew has a blend that he uses for soil that drains well, but still retains moisture. It’s what I want to do next year. “We’ve been wanting to do a book together for awhile,” said Glassman, who also credited Ballinger with making the book about more than California gardening. We’re in a new build house and are now outside of our warranty (by over 12 months). The garden has been an issue since we moved in (2012) specifically with drainage. Whilst in the warranty, we had the drainage re done and this was eventually completed in spring 2015 (outside warranty but delayed on new build company’s part due to waiting for warmer weather and deadlines on the new houses on the estate). Fast forward a year, the garden still doesn’t drain properly. We’ve got in a professional to give us a quote on sorting it and was willing to pay ourselves to get it sorted. It’s come back at £7k to fix and landscape it better than what it’s been done when we first moved in. Landscaper is suggesting that the soil is the problem and the drainage not being right. I was willing to pay a bit to sort it but now I’m annoyed that we’ve paid all this money for a house and basically haven’t got what we want; what’s worse, we need to pay around £7k to fix without adding any value. Have we got a legal case to take this back to the new build company? I hear from neighbours that they’ve got similar problems with drainage and gardens being ruined, but not sure if we individually have a case, or if we have a collective claim as it seems that when they’ve developed the site, they’ve not accounted for the fact they’re building into a hill. The drainage is shocking. I’m pissed off as this was our « dream home » and for 3 years we haven’t had a proper garden. Any recommendations of solicitors who deal with this kind of thing would be very welcome. erogran Tonus Fortis sterydy Atlant Gel Zevs power up premium erozon max Eron Plus Zevs Testo Ultra
