Fidget - you made me laugh re your ex. Of course - they're meant to be dead before you stick them under the patio. Verd knows all about it - he was burying bodies recently.
It reminded me of something a comedian said - 'a friend will help you move, a good friend will help you move a body'...
Matty you're post wasn't there when I posted earlier- hope you're ok. It would have been better if other half had been in front -you'd have got a nice soft landing
KEF know what you mean about wildlife. As Mr T says when we invite it in we can't be too picky about what comes in. I've used some jaggy prunings from a berberis to put in my front border to keep cats away and it seems to be doing the trick. At the front gate I've mulched with coarse bark and they don't like that but it's not feasible with edible crops.
Came in for a break and to take one daughter to a friend which I could have done without. Catching the end of the golf with a cup of tea. It was getting very hot again anyway so I don't mind.Wishing the back garden wasn't quite such a sun trap at the moment!
