I'm not guilty, don't have neighbours! But any snail I find is quickly trodden on. Especially the 5 caught eating my new clematis.

Mike, I get so busy in the Spring, I'm very behind with reading posts on here. Just seen this and wanted to tell you I'll say a little prayer, even a big one. I really hope it all works out for you, what a horrible thing to happen. But they can do wonders nowadays. Hugs ((( )))

HELLO FORKERS!

Been very busy preparing to go to England on Sunday with the 8 French friends.

Have weeded, sorted the GH, sown runner beans and sweetcorn.

Tracey, we used to go skiing every year when children were at home. First OH loved it. So easy when living in France, look up accommodation, book directly and drive there with the skis on the roof of the car. Did it instead of summer holidays often as we live in a holiday sort of place. Been to the Pyrenees and the Massif Central, but the Alps were best. I liked Meribel. But it's all more expensive now than it was.

Panda I watched "Love your Garden" too, missed most of the first series. Enjoyed it.

Must go to bed. OH is already there.

So sorry about your friend, Dove. Big hugs ((( )))

Chicky, if I can get to visit the Savill garden in Windsor I will be happy. We will stay a few days there as it's cheaper than London and we got a good deal on the hotel.

Morning all.

Next week I will be in England with a group of French friends (and OH).They want to see Canterbury, London and Oxford and asked me to arrange it. It has been complicated as there will be 10 of us with 2 hire cars and Ryanair.

It's really not a convenient time to leave the garden and the GH, full of babies, hope the housesitter manages to keep it all watered. It had to be over the Easter holidays because a couple are teachers and there are the 2 daughters of one couple. Should be fun though. 

I have masses to do before we go so this may be my last post for a bit.

No, Chicky. The deer don't touch them.

Sunseeker, there is a huge choice of shrubs, but some like it sunny, others shady, some like acid soil, some alkali etc. See what you like the look of in a book or Google or local garden centre and look it up to see if it suits your garden.

Hello, been staying with my daughter. It was a few years ago I planted mine so can't remember, but I would do what KEF says.
