Forester; thank you so much, Rosie31 especially has really got this scheme up and running and so many other wonderful people have come up with plants and cousins and friends to transport the plants

Saving private Sunflower

The sunflower hearts which I give the birds have self sown all OVER the flower beds. First I would tie them in to a cane to stop them getting wind damage, a few slug pellets and if you think it is being attacked by birds, though I have never experienced this, a plastic bottle with both ends cut off for the first few weeks may help; I do this sometimes for Morning Glory.

I am a newcomer to cuttings; have used this process pretty successfully to propagate for the flooded gardens appeal. But now I need advice. I want to dig up my massive, but delicious, Lovage to make space for Globe artichokes. I want to plant lovage in a big pot; how can I take cuttings from the existing plant?

Also, lovely tree peony has to go to make way for more veg; can I take cuttings of this, I have heard it takes up to 2 years for seeds to germinate

Just done the first Compost Master event of the year in King's Lynn; gazebo blew over in wild and windy conditions - my colleague and I finished feeling as if we had been sand blasted! But picked up a possible 2 more gigs. Sat eve bump.

It seems to be linked to facebook, which I am rather wary of.
