Listen to “An hour in the garden 4” on Spreaker.

This week we are dealing with the huge privet hedge, cutting them down, digging out the roots and having a long series of bonfires to shift the debris.
Bonfires are really good for your beds, if you don’t live in a smokeless zone. They fertilise and condition the soil as well as removing any surface nasties that might consume our crops.

We are also in leaf dropping season. A couple of tons of leaves have fallen on us so far, and we are making leaf mould from them in string bags – because they need lots of air to rot down and even then they take a year!

Other crops in the garden, broad beans, garlic and strawberries are under way – well, nearly!
