Rotavating our field

by hilaryhedgehog • Tue 20 Aug 2013 22:16

Is there anyone out there who can rotavate part of our small field or is there anywhere I can hire a rotavator? I just want to scratch the surface in order to sow a bag of wild flower seeds for next summer.

Re: Flies!

by hilaryhedgehog • Thu 04 Jul 2013 13:49

I searched for a post about flies as we have exactly the same problem though it's now 2013!
