Is the French for 'small man' 'omelette'?

Small front bit taking up grass, planting conifers

For small formal shapes, you could consider Hebes as well. Whatever you get check on final height/spread; you don't want to be spending a fortune a few years down the line with a tree surgeon

Doesn't it get dark early?!

Growing vegetables in the driveway with cars

Posted: 25/08/2014 at 09:45

My lovely neighbour in London was worried about this as we were only a mile or two from Hogarth Roundabout, which is supposed to be one of the busiest in Europe. He was a member of the RHS and had a soil test done, presumably testing for levels of lead etc., and found that the soil was safe.

I suggest a barrier between cars and veg; a 1.5 metre trellis with something dense like winter flowering jasmine growing up it.

2 jumpers and a raincoat for dog walking this morning. I find it very weird that the light in the evenings says 'August' and the temperature says 'October'

lillies cultivars

holmes, are you sure it was slugs and not the lily beetle? Today I have composted some spectacular (and rather too flashy for my garden) lily bulbs as am so fed up with the depredations of the lily beetle. I could combat it with Provado, but have been told that since Provado is systemic, the bees that go for the pollen and nectar will be poisoned by the pesticide.

Rude but funny.
