Never done any gardening before advice needed.

Are they paving stones for a patio area? If so they will need some sort of stony or rubbly foundation to give them a more solid base than just earth. Or could they be for a path like stepping stones across a lawn? They will just need grass dug out so they are level with the grass for mowing over.

They are quite common here in France. Recently I read an article which said they are being seen more often now in England.

Which way up please!

I have green capillary matting from Wilko which is in my propagators. If yours is the same then it's green side up with the seed trays on top.

I don't think you would need to dig that deep. My garden is on limestone and part of it was a farmyard. We added earth and manure but it isn't as deep as that and I grow a lot of perennials. Bits of it have rock about a foot down. My big dicentra is in a clay bit.

I hope so GD, now that it's been watered I would like to get on with weeding and planting.

That honeysuckle looks gorgeous, in fact it's exactly what I want on the trellis at the back of our cottage in Norfolk.


Been to see baby grandson, John or Jean (English or French). Had a small cuddle but he was fast asleep most of the time, except when nearly 2 year old brother poked him in the face! Son and DIL had lunch all prepared for us, which we hadn't expected, and daughter 2's French husband popped in as he was working in the area so he stayed for lunch too. He's just been back here to collect the things I'd bought for them in England, garden fork, Marmite, Golden Syrup, Bovril, Sherry etc.


We drove past signposts to Saintes on our way back from Saint Malo on Tuesday. When we first came to France I found it exciting driving past signposts to all the vineyards and villages with familiar names like Saint Emilion and Pomerol.
