Pigeon problem

Have you tried setting up a line of unwanted cds'/dvds, with the discs tied at intervals along the line? Apparently when they move and catch the light it scares the birds away.  I recently saw an advert for balloons that did the same job but I imagine you'd have to keep blowing them up!

What's the weather like in your area?

Thanks sotongeoff and rainjustlearning - I promise I'll do better next time!

It was a beautiful sunny day here and I spent all day pottering in the garden.  Looks like it might rain later, though.

Message for David K - thanks for liking my picture but I can't take credit for growing that partricular flower.  My son picked it from a patch of wildflowers growing near our house.  He's 14 and I think myself lucky that I have teenage kids that still bring me flowers - long may it last!  You marigold is very pretty, too!

There is a saying "one year's seed, seven years weed" so it may be a long project!  Would it be possible to lay some weed supressing fabric or black plastic over affected areas to try and kill it off? (with holes for the plants you want)

Lovely and sunny but still cold for the time of year. 

Who else loves the humble sempervivum

I love them too!  For all the reasons you mention above.  They are brilliant for getting into nooks and crannies where other plants would struggle.  Over the past few years I have really come to appreciate succulents and I am slowly making a nice collection of them.

Vinca/periwinkle might be worth a try

Gravel Garden

Hi burhinus.  I live in the South of France so my garden is naturally dry and I am always amazed at the range of plants that will grow with minimal water.  Like salino, most of the garden is gravelled and I just plant through it.  We have weed membrane in some areas and it helps to stop larger stones from coming to the surface.

LOL! Oh dear, I should have checked before posting!  When I scrolled down the page of the website I see you have already been there.  Senior moment!
