Looks like you're right will. Thanks

If I  chop my herbs up finely - who's to know

Thanks Will. Will check out leafhopper.

I'm willing to share - up to a point!

What is this?

Ladybird larvae are scary -looking things. I'm sure many are murdered.

It would be good if the site posted a pic on the home page informing people that they were friends not foes.

Is it ok to eat. Have the perpetrators gone or are they lurking?

It's free. It's up to you to decide whether it's worth putting up with the odd glitch.

On weekdays it seems to me that the staff - a more appropriate word escapes me- are extremely helpful.

At weekends, you need to be patient. All good gardeners are patient - most of the time.

How do I make this area look beautiful?

There's a glitch. Try again after the weekend.

That Adam cove sounds like a prxtt. 

 I shall have to watch the programme because my garden has things growing in it - even stuff that I planted!

Ok. Will do. I know I'm being overprotective but I must let them go out into the world I suppose.

I've bought quite a few varieties of penstemon and also taken some successful cuttings.

They're all in 1 or 2 litre pots. I repotted them a while ago.

They all seem big enough to plant in the ground now but I've been a bit loath to do it while the ground is so dry. 

When should I plant them? Should I do it now , early autumn or wait til spring?
