I have a water meter but my bills are the same as Verdun's. Must be because of watering the garden.
Verdun said "Convolvulus maritima will take over down here.....climate, soil and aspect allow that ...but perhaps elsewhere this beautiful plant will die kerria is another mistake for me. Invasive becoming more so over time"
Cornwall and Dordogne must have very different growing conditions. I have lost 2 Convolvulus maritime and my Kerria is very well behaved, has taken years to grow to a reasonable size. I can't grow acid loving plants or moisture loving plants or anything at all tender in winter or anything that doesn't like heat in summer.
Must go and clean the place up and put up some decorations.
