Dove, it isn't pesticide; it is weedkiller, would that website be appropriate for that? I spoke to a notary this morning who will get one of the solicitors to advise me. As I said above, I have been told this person is not friendly. Thank you all for your kind advice, I still have to think this through. My fear is that he will spray again while everything is flourishing, thanks to the bad spring not everything was as developed as it normally would be on May 1st.

It has taken 12 years and a lot of money to develop this garden from a paddock, I cannot sit back and let this happen.

Mattbeer, what is the secret for growing freesias; when to plant and then what?

FairyG, I will have to consult about this; I don't want to sue the guy as my neighbour did, (successfully) I just want it to stop.

I'm so pleased that you all like that Verbascum As Nut knows I too like Astrantia; first met them at a Sandringham plant show, they are not too showy but always attract attention. I like that coral coloured penstemon.

Winter; as always your garden is so elegant; what is the little 'hut' next to the white trellis fence? Is it a bee hive?

Gardeningf  I am so sorry to hear about the plants being flattened; it must be heartbreaking, especially at this time of the year when you expect everything to be looking good

Best Compost 2013

Posted: 19/06/2013 at 10:04

Have just emptied the compost out of the tray of the Norfolk County wormery which I am baby-sitting; very sticky, rich stuff, have mixed with my own compost and perlite to open it up a bit and have planted some toms in it. I am hoping it will get them going.

I think I am going to have to send a solicitors letter; neighbours tell me that speaking to him won't work

They are lovely plants, with quite a variety of colours available; I had Verbascum Marlborough(?) but it was a rather insipid pale primrose so I looked for more vibrant ones. They take quite a bit of space so that is why mine is on the drive.

Verdun, can we see some pics?
