Sustainability is the new black! Without exception, new clients are asking for raised beds and areas within the garden to create veg/fruit growing. Greenhouses are also in vogue!

Fantastic idea. And agree completely with Kerrie - not sure about the black though surely something a bit brighter for spring!

Oh, black's a girlie thing. Supposed to makes ones frame look finer!

Sue and myself have been working on the sustainable thing for many years now.......we have the veggies sorted pretty much. We are now trying hard to get fruit growing reliable - part of that is to get a forest garden up and running

Black French turnips are excellent, thoroughly recommended.

Oh god, what have I started?
Please invite ladies on here, feeling a bit out numbered!! But no talk of petrol fired things that need helmets and anti vibrator gloves. Save that for the boys toy section.

Lol Kerrie

I think you can hold your own here:-0))

Pip Howard asked for this group to be started and I am not so sure what took us (me) so long. I think it is one of the most active groups in the shortest possible time since we started.

I am looking forward to some suggestions/posts/experiences and suggestions.

"what if an animal has peed on them"

Tell her it is this ammonia that has caused such vigorous and healthy growth :)
