I have finally proven that going to the hairdresser is good for the garden.
Sitting there yesterday with my roots showing, I got to catch-up on all the hairdresser reads. And lo-and-behold in the latest edition of 'Your Family' I came across these useful tips for the green-fingered. Bury bananas under your rose bushes for a potassium kick and keep the snails away by tieing copper wire around your pots. Who knew. My search through 'Glamour' wasn't quite as useful.
