    Should I use soil from under a huge beech tree in my veg plot?

    The tree will have probably extracted most of the nutrients that have leeched into the soil, making the soil a no but the leaf litter would make an excellent soil conditioner.

    Clematis Wilt in June

    I've just googled and it says, if you have to cut it all back, it will regrow next season, the wilt doesn't effect the roots only the growing stems.

    Topsoil from an aggregate supplier - what should it feel like? (For a Polytunnel)

    So how much should a good top soil cost? I see loads of adverts for top soil that is in the £60-£80 bracket and sometimes less.

    Oleander Toxic

    If you have pets there is still very little chance that they will be affected. Cats seem to know what they shouldn't eat and dogs find Oleander an extremely unpleasant taste. :)
