  1. I think the bugs does a lot of damages, it not only sucked the sap out of the leaves, but also eat the leaves away in small portions as well .. My mint /basil patch got infested with a bugs 4 yrs ago . 1st yr i searched a lot online here and I sprayed, but it is not very effective, as it kept coming back so I've to let my mint/basil dies out. 2nd yr. I pulled every thing out of the patch, and let the regrowth grow slowly . 3rd yr. as the mint started to grow strong, this bugs came back to infest it. 4th yrs. again I've to let it dies out again. it's starting to get annoyed with these bugs, don't have the patience anymore .

    For the first time ever, I've had some hollow cabbages. They were roundhead white cabbages, gifted to me as seedlings to fill a gap. Thank goodness I had a full bed of good ones elsewhere! I planted them, put slug pellets around them and then covered them in enviromesh. They grew large, they looked fabulous. People walking by commented on how good they looked. And then I pulled them. The outside layers were perfect with no damage but the insides were totally eaten away. Only the occasional tiny slug around.
  3. Spring has sprung, as have the plants and weeds. Is this a weed? I don't remember planting something between sedum and aqualiga, but I may have forgotten! I found a similar plant appearing in my mint, which suggests a weed. Thank you!
  4. i have a garden someone has destroyed and the coucil wont even help level and fix a patio so i can at least make a start. Its uneven, grassy on parts. so ive been told to rotavate it all then rake it to level the lawn. then dig up the patio and clear a square to redo neatly. but the garden has a big mud step so i need to put blocks up to stop it sliding onto the patio then redo the patio with all kinds of colored slabs and sizes. then plant grass seed and in time train the grass to be a bordered flat lawn with a basic square piece of patio to sit and chill on and put slabs up the lawn in the middle to the concrete post for washing. Then in time plant flowers and ornaments and make nice. But has anyone a easy better idea and could even be like a dream garden i see on these pics on a low budget and self diy. im a girl medium build was athletic but injured my knee so need help anyone.
  5. poor flushing power or broken flushing mechanism may be because of the waste pipe, siphon jet, or rim jets are partially clogged, or the water level in the tank or bowl is too low. In these cases, clear the blockage and adjust the system to correct the water levels.
  6. Aluminum is more likely to leach into food, and at higher levels, in acidic and liquid food solutions like lemon and tomato juice than in those containing alcohol or salt. Leaching levels climb even more when spice is added to food that's cooked in aluminium foil.
  7. Been using this to adjust water for brewing beer and it works as expected. Came well packaged and promptly. Not tried them as a recipe ingredient for veggie sausage but very hopeful.
  8. although this thread is old but yes this tip is good.
