Advice from the cognoscenti please October 6, 2017 at 5:06 pm #52650 NorthernTeacherParticipant Food for the worms, Anne I wouldn’t dig them in – I’d just leave them but that’s just me October 6, 2017 at 5:12 pm #52651 gertieParticipant …but cut the tops off, yes?, so that it looks tidy for the next season!!

October 6, 2017 at 6:15 pm #52655 gertieParticipant Ah good Thanks for that Allan. Have just cut them off, and left them in a heap. Wondered about the odd one or two that seemed a tad manky at the end, tho’ on the whole they look pretty sound. Will now bag for the green waste Author Posts Viewing 7 posts - 1 through 7 (of 7 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
