    Luckily for us we managed to miss the snow but it was very cold with showers. Still managed to get a fair bit done though

    I do feel for you having snow covering your new plot on the first weekend. Having something new and not being able to use/play/do anything with it would drive me mad

    Don't waste your couch grass ... rot it down in a bucket of water. When it's all stinky, add it to your compost heap.

    HHHHhhhhmmmm !!! Now this is where the problems start !

    Some people say burn it, some say dump it, some say compost it ....

    We're getting so much advice which do we listen to ????

    At the moment all the roots and grss is being dumped as we haven't sorted a composter yet. BUT with so much conflicting advice who do you listed to (on offence 2Sheds).
