Looking Through the Cross: The Archbishop of Cante&hellip by Graham Tomlin
this is a great book, not in any simplistic praise, but as a real tribute to the author, and to the contents - I found this a tremendous inspiration during Lent, and shall keep it to re-read in the future.
Draper 07212 180L Compost Tumbler by Draper
This is a really great design. It occupies a 2ft square 'footprint' which is very modest, and is highly effective and easy to use. It is also surprisingly easy to assemble. One reviewer claimed it was difficult to put together - it is not difficult, and perhaps the design has changed since she and her engineer husband bought theirs. I [female!] put ours together within 40 minutes, and that included going off to look for a cross-headed screwdriver, the only tool you need.
The really helpful advice from the engineer/wife was to place the whole thing on a framework, and raise it so as to have easier access when emptying the contents.
Rootgrow Mycorrhizal Fungi 360 grams by Rootgrow
5.0 out of 5 stars Wouldn't be without it, 17 May 2014
This is an amazing substance, highly recommended for any gardener. We used it when planting shrubs and roses - and had one specimen 'Rosa Mutabilis' which grew to about 20 feet in height [the rose grower told us it would be 3 ft tall, and insists this is a record!] - and another, 'Margaret Merrill' which grew to over 6ft tall [again listed as a modest shrub rose, the grower insists this too is a record].
Not claiming you can grow exceptionally *tall* roses, just that everything planted with this scattered round the roots, seems to establish very quickly, and grow on into beautiful plants.
