I am always intrigued by the colours that people like in their gardens; two of my neighbours like very deep reds/pinks with a very small amount of white. I prefer blue/yellow/orange/cream/white and NO shocking pink and will only tolerate a small amount of Chinese laquer/brick red. But the alliums that I adore for their shapes are usually a sort of mauve, so I have learnt to like that. A friend is convinced that when a plant nursery sees me coming they swap all the labels around; so I ended up with magenta aubretia that was supposed to be blue What colour combinations does everyone else like?

John Harding, metric measurements are really very easy; just remember, a litre's like a metre only wetter

I'm so sorry for you Brummie B, I do hope you manage to get rid of this pest; I'm spraying the G/H with water everytime I walk past as I really don't want it.
