Brush Removal Tips For the Competition

If you plan to take your vehicle on the road and plan to take it to a competition, the first place you should visit is your local auto body shop. Every single one of them knows how to handle and carry out brush removal. The next thing you need to do is get someone to do it for you. This may seem like a hassle to you, but if you are looking to turn a really good profit, you have to go with the guy who can make you the most money for the least work.

brush removal

The first thing you will want to ask the auto body repair shop is whether they carry the attachments they used when they removed the brush. This will make it easy for you to find out exactly what you need to get rid of. Some people are lazy and don’t look for brushes in the shop when they are done, which is fine.

Once you are done, you may want to take some brake dust with you to clean up the front of your car. In my experience, if you buy brake dust you will be able to clean more than once. Make sure you use a very wet rag.

Use a little of the brake dust that you took to clean the rest of the calipers, rotors, and discs. Do not use the brake dust you bought at the show. Most of the guys at the shop that have to do this will just throw it away.

Clean the rotor to remove any glue residue that may be left. Clean the rotors as well. You can find this stuff in the kit, but make sure you use an attachment to clean it.

Now you have to clean the caliper as well. This can be done with or without brushes. I usually use a rag with rubbing alcohol and wash it down.

You can then clean the inside of the caliper. You will only need a paper towel to clean it out. This can be done in the shop, but I have had some success cleaning it myself.

Design for the RHS Wisley World Food Garden revealed

RHS National Centre for Horticultural Science and Learning on the Hilltop at Wisley, the World Food Garden will form a ‘living laboratory’ when it opens in spring 2020. Inspiration has been drawn from the traditional large vegetable garden but delights in embracing the UK’s exciting new innovations and cultural shifts in ’grow your own’, to form a truly contemporary plot to plate experience.

Garden compartments where one can discover a wealth of growing, cooking and eating opportunities, with plenty of contemporary twists, will teach and inform in an approachable, accessible way – no matter a visitor’s culture, age, horticultural interest or experience. We hope our work will be a valuable tool in allowing the RHS to share their expert knowledge in preserving and progressing the science, art, and practice of horticulture, and that they are enjoyed by future generations both urban and rural, to enhance our shared global environment.

A central axis drives into the heart of the space is lined with edible, annual and perennial flowers, and overhead pergolas are clothed with vegetables and fruit ripe for the plucking.

A maze world kitchen garden with demonstration outdoor kitchen takes you on a journey of edible discovery. Each bed is linked by an overhead arch symbolizing the linking of culinary communities worldwide, whilst framing the decorative nature of more unusual vegetable and fruit varieties.

The trial vegetable gardens highlight the champion plants of the RHS Vegetable trials. These beds are inspired by the structure of cells, with contemporary trained fruit supports to give height and structure.

The café garden with its zones of planting suitable for food, juicing, and cocktails (!!) will be a colorful, plentiful space to tempt the taste buds and the urge to grow your own supper at home.

Our design is a chocolate box of cultivars, distilling the cream of edible crops showing not only what’s best to grow, but which plants are most likely to succeed once back in your own garden at home. Working alongside the RHS Wisley edibles team is a joy, and as a team, we hope to share and maximize the impact of today’s food stories and create new ones.

Open for the National Garden Scheme: Denne Manor Farm

cherry trees in full bloom along the fenceI’m taking a short break from my Chelsea reporting to bring you news of a superb new garden opening for the National Garden Scheme here in Kent this weekend.

I visited Denne Manor Farm back in late April on what can politely be described as an unseasonably cold and dreary Sunday. Being partially urbanized I was not correctly attired, but this didn’t prevent me from enjoying a lovely morning chatting with owners Louisa and Andrew Mills and strolling around their marvelous garden. By their own admission, the couple is not expert gardeners, but they clearly adore their garden and want to make it as good as it possibly can be. Like many of us, they are learning as they go and make no bones about that. Denne Manor has blessed with ample space for future development and bags of character thanks to its rural setting and skillfully restored outbuildings.

Louisa’s personal passion is for cultivating her favorite beetroots and gourds, and Andrew is in the process of planting a small vineyard. They are keen to encourage wildlife into their garden and to have color all year round. The couple keeps a flock of Swiss Valais Blacknose sheep which will hold visitors young and old in their thrall. This rare breed has been dubbed the world’s cutest and it would take a hard-hearted soul to argue with that. I was allowed to get in with the lambs who might also be dubbed the world’s friendliest. As for the ram – I’d recommend keeping a healthy distance!

Denne Manor Farm is situated in the very heart of Kent, not far from the villages of Shottenden and Chilham. This is one of my favorite parts of Kent; quiet, pretty and little known to outsiders. The farm is approached down a narrow lane and through a series of oak gates, one with finials that match those on the newel posts of the manor’s staircase. One notices straight away that the garden is both high and exposed on each side. This is a challenge for Louisa, Andrew and the team at Oakley Manor Garden Services who help the couple to maintain the grounds. Trees and hedges have been planted and are maturing quickly, providing some shelter from the worst of the winds that sweep across Kent. In the main garden, there is an especially fine tulip tree, Liriodendron tuilpifera, and mighty horse chestnut, Aesculus hippocastanum. Both appear to predate the current garden’s layout.

Old house along the gardens in the UKIn common with many of Kent’s smarter country houses, Denne Manor Farm had humble beginnings and has enjoyed a chequered history. The oldest parts of the house date from the 15th or 16th Century when the English Bond brick pattern was commonly used for construction. The manor’s frame was made from timber. The house was significantly updated and extended during the early Georgian period: look up and you’ll see Dutch gable-ends, a common feature of the houses of East Kent, an architectural flourish introduced by waves of settlers that arrived from the Low Countries during this period.

In keeping with the agricultural setting, the gardens are laid out in an expansive and traditional style – wide mixed borders backed with small trees, mature shrubs and a good mix of summer flowering perennials and bulbs. Such generous space allows for large drifts of planting which can be admired from the well-kept lawns, another of Andrew’s passions. The planting has been carefully thought out to surround and complement the manor so that it appears to sit on a cushion of foliage and flowers. On my visit, the daffodils were starting to fade and tulips were coming to the fore, with the promise of alliums to come. Having had much better weather since then, visitors this weekend can expect to enjoy a very fine wisteria, roses, and peonies. As well as lawns and borders there is a rose arbor, a swimming pool garden and a vegetable garden to explore.

Previous owners commissioned an intricate topiary parterre to the side of the house, in a design representing a Kentish apple tree. It feels entirely appropriate for this house, but it’s all Louisa and Andrew can do to keep their handsome pack of Italian Pointers (Bracco Italiano) and Weimaraners from destroying it!

Picture of pink and white peony in full bloom in the garden at springtime.It did not take long to work out that Louisa and Andrew, who have spent much of their careers working abroad, are the most hospitable and down-to-earth of people. Opening your garden for the first time is a daunting prospect and a generous gesture, so do go along and give them plenty of encouragement. Louisa and Andrew are inviting visitors to bring along a picnic, as well as offering refreshments. The gardens will be open on both Saturday, May 26th and Sunday, May 27th from 12 pm-4 pm. The entry price of £5 goes to the charities supported by the National Gardens Scheme. Click here for more details. TFG.

N.B. Many of the photographs in this post have been kindly provided by Louisa and Andrew since my own efforts were somewhat marred by the weather!

Taking Care of Your Tree – The Importance of Tree Care

A few years ago, no one would have thought that caring for a tree would be something so simple. Of course, we are living in a far more modern age, where technology has not only changed the way things are done, but the way they work as well. Our lives have been very different. Before I begin this article, I would like to make a point that you should consider as you continue reading.

tree care

Do you really know what you’re doing with your tree? Have you taken care of it properly? If you haven’t taken care of your tree, you will most likely regret it later on, as it may require a number of remedies. Tree care is a very important part of caring for a tree, so it’s always better to learn from others’ mistakes.

There are many reasons why people don’t care for their trees properly. One may be that they’re not really aware of what needs to be done. Another reason may be that they simply don’t care enough about their trees to do it.

It is imperative that you take care of your tree. Otherwise, you won’t be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor and the time you spent on it. How can you enjoy something that you aren’t willing to do? It’s the same as when you buy a house, or a car, you have to be prepared to care for it.

Perhaps the reason why people don’t take care of their trees properly is because they don’t understand the types of things that could happen, or what it takes to have a tree that produces fruit. A tree that doesn’t produce fruit is a disappointment to anyone. You can’t even enjoy the fruits that your tree produces if you aren’t willing to do it. Therefore, it’s best that you take proper care of your tree.

As you go through tree care, it’s an important thing to remember. It can’t just be a matter of doing the necessary tasks, doing them properly, and waiting for the fruits to come. It’s necessary to take the steps to ensure that your tree remains healthy. Not only should you care for your tree, but also you should watch over it. Don’t leave your tree alone. Make sure that your tree is being taken care of properly.

Just because you can afford it, don’t want to do it yourself, or do not have the time to do it yourself, it doesn’t mean that you can’t do it. You can be happy to know that you took care of your tree, and that you know the way to take care of a tree. Make sure that you’re doing the right thing for your tree, and you will soon be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Take care of your tree.

Bursting into bloom – spring flowering trees for your garden

It’s been a long time coming this year, but after last week’s warm spell, spring is finally leaping out of the ground, from the branches of trees and strewing itself gently all around the place. I love this time of year. Everything brings the promise of good things to come; foliage is fresh and fat buds are setting; the days get longer and people begin to smile again. Even though you never know what the weather will do to you next, it feels good to be outside.

Flowering trees play an important role in the garden canvas, providing a burst of spring color long before the rest of the garden is in full vigor. Especially in years such as this, where your bulb displays may have been badly affected by the late cold weather. Flowering trees offer other advantages as well, allowing the beholder to enjoy their lovely blooms and sweet fragrance without stooping to ground level. And once the blooms are spent, their glorious floral display gives way to interesting leaf shapes, colorful berries, and dazzling autumn color.

If there’s one spring tree that awakens a gardener from their winter slumber, it has to be the cherry. In Japan trips from town are made to gardens simply to enjoy the delicate blossoms of the trees. If you have space, then the Great White Cherry (Prunus ‘Tai Haku’) is the one for you – it grows up to 8m across!  It was thought to be lost to the mists of time, until, back in 1923 it was rediscovered in a Sussex garden! In mid-April, it is covered in a profusion of fragrant, single, pure white flowers, each up to 6cm across. But if your garden is small, don’t despair, Prunus mume ‘Beni-chidori’ is perfect as it’s naturally small at 3m height and spread and, even better, its double rich pink flowers are richly scented and open in April right along with all your spring shade lovers planted underneath.

Another great choice for this time of year is the underrated Malus genus.  Just like the cherry, Malus blossom can be anything from pure white to deepest pink.  The spring display of Malus hupehensisis both profuse and beautiful. The cup-shaped flowers are 4-6cms across, with five petals that are pink in bud but pure white with yellow stamens when open and softly scented. After flowering, small, round green fruits soon form. In early autumn, these turn a glossy bright red, hanging like bunches of cherries.  The leaves color well in the autumn. Malus hupehensisis not a tree for a very small garden – in good soil, it will reach 10m in height and spread at maturity, but where there is space it is very striking.  There are a number of other excellent ornamental crab apples worth considering for smaller spaces, in particular: the more upright Malus x robusta ‘Red Sentinel’, which has white flowers and large, dark glossy red, enduring fruits or Malus tschonoskii, which has a narrow flame-shaped habit, making it very suitable for small gardens, as well as pink-tinged white flowers, yellow-green fruits and fantast autumn leaf colour.  Malus x zumi ‘Golden Hornet’, is a small rounded tree with golden-globe fruits that hang on well past Christmas.

And we can’t write a blog about spring blossom without mentioning the designer’s favorite – Amelanchier lamarckii– which is a fantastic choice for a small space. It has very pretty white spring flowers and autumn leaf color, as well as small red summer berries that are edible and loved by birds.
