Thanks Andrew for your message. I had just read the Shoot advice re pruning which said March/April, so your message confirmed that this was when I should cut them back. Glad I didnt do it yesterday!!!

Making new raised beds

Question from Fi

In forum: Edible gardening

Over this winter/spring I would like to make some raised beds for vegetable growing. I have an area of about 5 sq m. Has anyone any tips of what wood, how deep, type of soil to add etc. I envisage about three with bark paths inbetween.

Growing herbs

Message from Fi

In forum: Edible gardening

I've found most herbs like an open sunny spot. I created a small raised area, surrounded by bricks and wood (you could use anything like that), planted Rosemary in the centre, then chives, sage, marjoram, thyme, parsley and mint round the outside, and then covered it with a few inches of gravel. They are doing really well - except the mint has grown into the middle and the sage is trying to take over! But I don't mind, it still looks lovely especially when the sage, tyme and rosemary flower. Lesson is - leave plenty of room for each plant - the rosemary will get very big, but you can cut it back to one stem and train it as a standard.

Thanks Eric for your message which I have just read. It has been very helpful, as I just did not know when to take out the rooted cuttings.
