Garden girl; everyone should have a jig saw; mine is a Bosch and has been useful for about the last 15 or 20 years. The power tool I really love is my hammer action drill; 42 years old and still drilling away

Nut and whoever the plants were handed on to and Rosie how brilliant

Any advice for rubbish lawn!

Tom, when did you plant the grass seed? Did you put in lots of twigs to stop the birds eating the seed? I won't ask if you watered it as it sounds like quite a damp area

I cheated and bought a plant; it has been in the g/h for about a year and scarcely a week goes by when it does not provide flowers for the house. In a vase they last for about 2 weeks; what an amazing plant! I planted mine in a 10 inch (300 mm) pot in compost with sharp sand. The variety I have is Rhubarb and Custard.

Wills, how tall is too tall? Also does your garden face South? and what is the soil like? Well cultivated? A pic of the area would help.

Ideas for a deep tray?

Nut, how lovely for you about the moorhen, there are some around here, but my favourites are the coots and the teenage swans, who look like rather grubby small swans and go wherever their parents go and then finally make their own way in the world. It's a  shame the bats don't listen to your advice

Tuesday evening bump; just been making more pathways on the veg bed; treated timber gravel boards covered with chicken wire. Hard work on the hands.

Sooo looking forward to May 1st when a whole load more cuttings come out of their zipper freezer bags. So far I've had about 95% success with cuttings, which is amazing since what I know about cuttings would not cover the back of a postage stamp
