Re: 5 or 9 acres?

Thank you, all good food for thought! Actually, one of the PP conditions on the 9 acres was to plant a visual barrier so that'd definitely be ok. But the main concern is the footpath. I'm going to go view them both again today. The land would be used for running our business (3-3.5 acres) and the re...

5 or 9 acres?

How do I choose? I may have the opportunity to purchase one of two plots. Was originally set on 9 acres but now not sure having visited both. 9 acre pros: bigger (!), not much more expensive (think 15-20% more) south east facing Cons: quiet public footpath running more or less directly through the c...

How many?

Sowing Claytonia (winter purslane/miner's lettuce), dragon's tongue and green wave (cut & come again oriental mustard greens) for the first time.

How many of each per person do you reckon?

The Forest Garden Greenhouse by Jerome

Can anyone recommend this book? It's on amazon but is quite pricey and I've no experience of the author. Looks interesting though.

Re: Best floor for greenhouse?

Thanks for the photos Tony, that's exactly what I had in mind but had never seen it executed. Fantastic! Not sure I need the extra headroom though :lol: DND great advice re. being able to raise the humidity with slabs. I'd never even thought of that (in fact I was considering pebbles so the drainage...

Re: Ducks or Chooks?

Wowzers I didn't realise I was still actively posting in 2014! I'll have a think but I'll probably just stick to the new username as I think my old account is on a dud email address. Thanks though!

Best floor for greenhouse?

I've just bought my first greenhouse :cheers: but I'm not sure what kind of "floor" is best. My options are: Soil Slabs Pebbles Or a combination of the above. My mother in law seems to do ok with hers (half goes straight into the earth, half is paved for staging). Only problem is the soil beneath wh...

Re: Ducks or Chooks?

Hi everyone, thanks for the advice! The woodchip idea is genius, we're talking of getting a chipper as we have a bit of a problem with ash popping up all over the shop. The house was previously neglected so a lot of the clusters are quite large now. Bonnie, I was some variation of 'Green Pea' I was ...

Ducks or Chooks?

We've finally moved to a house with a fairly decent (yet modest!) outdoor space which is being transformed into a forest garden. I'm trying to work out whether we should have ducks or chickens. We're a family of three (LO is still a month off solid food so he won't need too many eggs :lol: ) and liv...
