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

Help for flooded gardens

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

Budget patio ideas?

Justine; are you any good at applying concrete? I saw something in the West Indies that might work and be cheap-ish. Use a jack hammer to break up the current surface to use as hardcore. Pour on cement, preferably tinted to look like york stone/sandstone/whatever. When it is starting to set, using a suitable tool (of your own devising) scribe into the concrete to emulate the dips between real stone.
