Mike, hope you are feeling ok.

The mix of peat, sand and cement; would it stick to a plastic container or should it be coated with PVA first? And should one coat the inside as well as the outside with your mix?

Bump; tomorrow am going to shamelessly start hustling a few firms, I'm not very good at that sort of thing, but I'll have a bash

Chicky, I don't think it was part of the Festival; they do ballet and Opera once or twice a year. We saw the ballet last year; the stage is so small that the corps de ballet had to discreetly shimmy into the wings every time a principal did a solo

I've also seen an amateur orchestra (who shall remain nameless) who didn't do badly, but from time to time the violin section seemed to lose the will to live

I actually love these performances every bit as much as I used to enjoy going to the Royal Opera House and ENO.

Could you take the plants to a friend or neighbour who would understand their needs?

How to turn this dumping ground into gracious greenery...?

If you don't want to take up the concrete, you could use it for something else; a shed or raised beds or cover it with fake grass and a paddling pool? The more you improve the garden, the easier it will be to sell the house when you want to move on

Good luck with it and show us some pics as the work proceeds

Nut, of course - it was ARUM Italicum, but in there is a baby Solomon's Seal. (I'm always a bit vague about plant names; for about 20 years could never remember the name of Aubretia and in my head always referred to it as Anchovy)

Rosie, how wonderful; are you a soprano?

Music in the Garden

Posted: 16/04/2014 at 09:13

rosemummy, I know what you mean about music on building sites; I worked on building sites for nearly 40 years and it has given me a loathing of most pop music; the worst time was in the US Virgin Isles, with 2 huge ghetto blasters, one each side of me, one playing Country and the other playing Rap!
