I'm not sure that I have ever seen a glow worm. How big are they?

Wow, what a day! It was so lovely to meet Supernoodle and Topbird for the first time and then there was Dove, Nut and the wonderful Panda So I will upload a few of the 120 photos I took. These people who started this garden SERIOUSLY know about containers/huge flower pots. But also, they have almost created a micro-climate by growing huge hedges, that somehow don't cut out the sunshine.

 Nut and I on our way there stopped at the most magical wild flower place; didn't have time to see the gardens, but Nut bought some plants. We were pretty impressed with the place and pic above is the name.

 They have loads of hydrangeas, not usually a favourite of mine, but their choices were very good and beautifully placed.

TPO and mature Sycamore - to buy or not to buy

Insurance! House insurance companies are increasingly asking if there is a tree taller then 5metres (16 feet!) near to the house and that then affects your premium.

Nut, I was thinking of inventing it I always wanted to invent cheese ice cream and prawn sorbet. Topbird, I agree with you - it could be great.

Screening

Posted: 17/07/2014 at 22:52

Or just provide a spectacular plant which will distract their attention? The reed or bamboo screening may be a bit cheaper than mentioned above at places like Wilkinsons. I have a similar problem in that my whole garden is sideways onto the road. Luckily my little terrace is lower than the road, but still slightly visible.

Anyone grown Linaria maroccana (moroccan toadflax)

Posted: 17/07/2014 at 22:45

What can I have thats large instead of troughs at the front of a house! Help

Posted: 17/07/2014 at 22:41

Paul, could we see some photos of this area? Also, look up Tufa  and Super Tufa on you tube; its a way of making tubs that look like old stone, using compost, cement and sand.
