  1. Dear Alan,

    I have a garden with an area of 3000m2 but in Poland.
    It has a lot of plants and trees and the orchard, but the garden does not hold a whole.
    Would you like to renew my garden? You fulfilled the dream of my mother, who dreams of old age rest in a beautiful garden. I dream of a modern garden.
    Garden has plenty of room to do a lot of interesting things.
    Objects that I would like to end up in the garden:
    gazebo, paths with lanterns, a football pitch, swimming pool, fireplace, fountain, illuminated boulder, diveway for cars, barbecue with bricks, **greenhouse with plunge pool, exotic plants and parrots**, a beach volleyball court, a patio for events, wooden house made of logs in which it would be jacuzzi, sauna and bar, terrace at the house surrounded by grasses.
    I will waiting for contact
    Isabella from POLAND

    I assure you that MEDIA IN POLAND WILL ADVERTISE YOUR PROGRAM ABOUT POLISH GARDEN. PROGRAM will be watch several million people.

  2. on your raised bed ,you used 2 kind of soil. at the base was about a foot of soil that was wood chip/manure and a foot of top soil on its top. my raised vegetable plot has only the base wood chip/manure as soil .hence after 8 weeks it has become a wild none edible mushroom field, my basil had a minute growth, Broad beans and french beans yellowish rather than green with no flower or fruit.

    we are about 10 new gardener with the same problem.

    as you used 2 kind of soil i am thinking to remove a foot of the so called soil and replace it with all purpose top soil// compost from Morrison, special offer of about £2.50 or so.

    Please advise what to do?

    how and where to find the right mix of soil????????

    My Thanks as well as 9 other plot holder for your kind attention

    specially if it is before TUESDAY, when we meet the soil contractor in the RBKC
    community garden .

    thank you again
