Late Winter Round up

another use for raspberry prunings; anti-hen-scratch barrier at hedge base, good shelter for wildlife too

Wow slugs have started laying early this year, said to be as good as caviar, maybe should collect them up…

Cherries now all woven down, sort of basket-work, not pruned, only way to keep them inside cage

Set onion sets in multicelled trays, later firm each rootplug in dibbed hole and birds/worms won’t shift them

last years compost bin topped off with loads leaves then a net to stop birds scratching it all down

this years bin, 8 pallets, (they’re getting bit old) really rough stuff going in bottom for aeration

birds need fluffy stuff for lining nests, I saved globe artichoke heads to set on fence by pond
