My husband used to go out with an air rifle at 6am when we lived in Kent. He gave be John Seymour's book on self-sufficiency so I could learn to prepare rabbits for cooking. Unfortunately there were fleas pinging about on the work surface when I tried!

I like Dove's suggestion, but you could get one of these.

Oh, I was there 2 1/2 weeks ago. Bought plants for our cottage in South Norfolk. Lovely GC.

ready made borders

That Crocus border is 2m deep, yours is half that, so a big shrub like the Choisya would need to be kept under control. Don't think there would be any room for anything in front of it. Lavender is fine in sunny alkali soil. Some of those plants are quite vigorous. If you want more room for planting perennials then Honeysuckle and clematis would be better than shrubs. Unless you could make the bed deeper.

Salvias...what am i doing wrong?

You lucky old thing, they don't seem to sell all those in France.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

I've found lots of snails buried in the undergrowth while I've been weeding. Bashed them with a trowel. Why does everything want to destroy my garden? Deer, slugs, snails, vine weevils, moles, hares, wasps (fruit, rarely get any left for me!), my cat (although I love her) etc. Think I have a wildlife park.
