Broadcasting poppy seeds into the border

Yes - definitely works. After all, what happens when poppy seed heads dry out and burst? You are just replicating nature. The seedlings don't like being transplanted so sow where you want them to flower and pull up the ones you don't want.

Buy a packet of fresh watercress from the supermarket and stick it in a jug. After a few days it will have grown roots and you can pot it up/chuck it in the pond.

Can someone tell me what this is please

Yellow Book Recommendations

Hi Yvieh

I'm in East Sussex. I enjoy the times where several gardens in one village open together so that you can enjoy (and compare) them in one visit. Winchelsea does this for one weekend of the year which I really do recommend (lovely town and good pub for lunch which is a bonus). In the past gardens in Mayfield and Brighton have also done it. In fact, why not combine garden visiting with the Open Art Houses in Brighton, where you get to nosey round houses/studios which are turned into art galleries for the duration of the festival (May) as well as their gardens? Some of them a truly beautiful - mostly very small but really imaginitively planted.

You could, but I would imagine they would take a very long time to decompose
