Thank you obelixx. Did you see my post to say the Détauper exploded? Made me jump! Glad Rasta's lump is benign.

Expensive perennial plug plants

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.

My Hot Lips died, yet it was a milder than usual winter.

There I was, quietly weeding on my knees when there was a huge explosion! Like a firework banger. Mole bomb has gone off. I'll leave it for OH to deal with. He's gone to do the weekly shop as I had to wait for the delivery of 10 mole traps which were to arrive between 8am and 1pm. They arrived at 12.45pm, French time.

I wonder if we can get that part of lawn resown and green by 8th May?

I hope Rasta doggy is OK.

Sent you a PM obelixx, OH having bothers with the détaupeur. It keeps flashing red even when switched off, so he daren't adjust it. Meanwhile mole is merrily digging all around it!
