I released this tree some time ago, but there's no record of it here, for some reason. Anyway, I noticed afterwards that the top of the protective railing was causing a wound to the tree. Thus...



So I got one of the rubber spacers and a cable tie and tried to rectify the problem.



will try and get a better photo. Temp phone used while main phone getting screen fixed...  Undecided

I would like to share an idea of how to make a seed planting stick from a walking stick, so that seeds can be planted - even in some types of unprepared ground - without needing to bend or stoop down.

Initial tests show that the stick works well for most types of seeds, though it would be more efficient if customised for specific types and sizes of seeds. This version is not suitable for big seeds like acorns and chestnuts, but could handle these with slight modification.

It took me less than 30 minutes to make the seed stick.

I'm sure people on here will get ideas on how to make it even better.

The story is here:

Enjoy!

Cleared out a bit of litter from the former #primaveraverdi bulbs. Just because they've gone over, doesn't mean they can't be looked after, na?

No bonfire last year,  (2015) but one recently (2016)

got round to rehabilitating it today.

A bucket of topsoil, poor effort, I know, but what the heck.



So I raked over the earth, and scooped up the melted wheelie bin (seen in the foreground)


 in preparation for raking over the soil and sowing the grass seed...



and then I tamped down the raked over soil to make sure the seed is in contact with the soil. Did a bit of a salsa-shuffle with my lovely assistant to ensure it was effective!

Thus:

should be good. I am expecting to lose some to feeding pigeons and the like, but will post a pic in a couple of months to show progress, if any.

I almost forgot. On March 25th, I went to Kilkenny and helped plant a load of trees. Oak, silver birch and alder mostly. The location was the Linear Park by the River Nore.

Part of the One Million Trees in One Day thing on Facebook a couple of years ago, I got some trees. Here's one still in its pot.



and this is where it went.



and this is it in situ.



a silver birch. I gave it a 5L watering of canal water over the weekend as it's been dry all week.
