Nut, have got the bird food.

African Violet Centre, have not been there for a year or 2. The shop was always full of naff 'cute' cr.p. (I don't do cute) Over the last 2/3 years, the plants outside always looked a bit sad and neglected. Plus, I actually loathe African Violets; I find them quite creepy!

I have one like the third photo; the seed packet said 'dwarf Morning Glory' but I don't think it is related to M. G. at all; I think Vic is right

African Violet Centre (not a favourite Nursery for me) is near Terrington Saint Clement. My favourite Nursery is 500 metres away from there; Moat Road nursery.

Removing weeds from border without harming trees

....and don't forget to keep those Leylandii under control - they grow surprisingly quickly!

I would pull/dig gently to get the worst out. When some of them return, mask off the nearbye tree with plastic/cardboard and on a still day spray with weed killer. It may take 2 or3 weeks for this to kill the weeds.
