Tiny microbes produce perfect plant food2h Tiny microbes produce perfect plant food
How to make a protozoa soup to help your plants thrive A healthy, resilient plant gets all its strength from what its feet sit in. A healthy root system has the tools to take on slugs, rain, wind and whatever else summer is going to throw at us. There are, in very basic terms, two types of soil that garden plants like: fungally or bacterially dominated. Perennials, shrubs, fruit bushes and trees like fungally dominated soils. Annuals, including most vegetables and nearly all grasses, like bacterially dominated soils. It’s quite easy to please either gang by feeding the soil to promote either more fungi or more bacteria.

‘Sustainability’ and ‘environmental’ are slippery terms but there are some places that are much greener than others The way towns trumpet their green credentials, you’d think we were already living in Paradise-by-Way-Of-Caroline-Lucas. (We’re not.) It’s tricky, though, to sort greenwash from the truly green. Voting behaviour? Lucas is the UK’s only Green party MP, for Brighton Pavilion ward. But in May’s local elections, a total of

In 2010 we stopped getting any older. The implications are huge6h In 2010 we stopped getting any older. The implications are huge
Maybe we should be thinking about cancelling increases in the state pension age, not raising it The most profound change to human life over the previous 100 years came to a halt in 2010. In the decades before it, life expectancy in Britain kept rising, with men, in particular, born in the 1920s and 1930s enjoying far longer and healthier lives than ever expected. This increase in lifespan has affected everything – from housing to health to pensions. It’s why we need to find ever greater sums for the NHS. It’s why the state pension age has had to go up. Arguably, it’s a big reason why house prices are so high – because people are living in them for longer.

Tout rout: stars come out to close down ticket resellers13h Tout rout: stars come out to close down ticket resellers
Acts such as Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran are trying to ensure fans pay only face value to see them Recent UK headlines paint a picture of chaos in the world of major pop concerts: fans of Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, the Rolling Stones, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, and Justin Timberlake angered by invalid tickets, last-minute seat swaps leading to impaired views, unexplained show cancellations and paying hefty prices upfront only to see tickets being given away free in the car park. But industry experts say that many of these inconveniences are part of new approaches designed to beat touts and secondary sellers, ultimately improving the consumer experience. Fans attending the last two shows of Ed Sheeran’s four nights at Cardiff’s Principality stadium this weekend will be greeted by a flashing sign welcoming “Victims of Viagogo”. When Sheeran’s tour went on sale in June 2017,
