Orchid Lady, I think it looks fabulous; could you put a little compost in the hole on the right and have something slightly drooping planted there?

Talkback: Wild garlic

atway, are the leaves quite broad and about 15cm tall? If it is wild garlic, it is apparently invasive; I keep it in check by planting it in a hole in horticultural membrane covered in pea shingle. Will post photo 2morrow if you like

Victoria, I would just tell the horrid old man that the rate of TB has rocketed in recent years because of spitting. When I was a small child, circa 1952 I can remember being on the top of a bus in Hampstead (there's posh) I had just started to master reading and asking my mother what 'hawking and spitting' were as there was a sign on the bus forbidding it. I came across both when working on a building site in the Middle East and didn't eat for 3 days as I felt so sick! Eventually I got used to it.

Fg; please tell me what you can tie the string to in a Halls Silverline Costafortune with no after sales service Greenhouse?

I was looking at it today and thinking ;I will have to drill holes in the aluminium struts or use clothes pegs? There is absolutely nothing to fasten anything to.

Surely these are slow or struggling?

There may be a soakaway in that area?

I think it may be an allium; had some like that but they seem to have vanished; they are not tall and the flower head is about the size of a tennis ball.

Oh, Rosie; will you say hello to Andrew and the others on facebook for me? Sorry to be such a techno phobe. I have an old friend in London who is on facebook; perhaps I should get her to guide me through it
