Can you give us a photo of the situation?

I didn't think it was possible

Yes, Pauline; looking at the enlargement it seems there are little 'hats' on the fence posts.

That looks great The lavender will have grown a bit by next summer, possibly not much by early spring. It has to be cut back after flowering each year so that it doesn't become too straggly - but don't cut back into the old wood.

Even a micro pond helps!

Lindsay, that is spectacular! How do you stop the water from becoming stagnant, or do you have a pump and a fountain of sorts?

My garden is not large, but I would love to do something like that. Is it in sun or shade?

When I worked in the Caribbean I was told that Bananas died after fruiting. I'm not certain that this is actually the truth, but we were told it when my friend's plant keeled over.

I didn't think it was possible

Fantastic achievement, a lot of hard work has really paid off. I especially like the fence as may have to make one to stop small mutt digging up veg bed

Doesn't it get dark early?!

Had to rescue a large Dragonfly from the conservatory today. Delphiniums about to re-flower - lovely warm day for friends who came all the way from London to have lunch

But have noticed how early it is getting dark

I've removed the flower heads for aesthetic reasons; don't know if that is horticulturally sound

Why does it say I've reviewed all these plants?
