Right verdun Concentrations needed here

I want to get this one right 

Sluggs: the long thick black ones or the brown shade ?

And if your wanting a mixture I have seen some greenish ones ,but they don't look quite as big.I won't measure them I will leave that pleasure for you.

Did you say snails too I have all sizes and colours here , do you have a preference?¿?

Now packaging a : padded envelope okey for the sluggies - these usually travel well on the sole of my foot .squash and squilch.but I don't mind you having them

What about house and contents removal company for the snails?

Let me know sap.

Does anyone know what this shrub is please?

If it hasn't  rooted  you might have a branch that you can get enough soil over it to bury and put also something heavy to hold it down .then spring / summer  it could already be rooted for you to go straight onto the garden

Yes bekkie think I may have had this one,had a call few week ago , bloke said they had detected a problem on my pc  looked like a virus.I said I knew nothing about it

There reply was that they realized   , and this is why they   are contacting me, said if I could just turn on my computer they could talk me through it.

I told them that I didn't have time ( after all I was sorting out my first love- me garden borders!) 

So he was very helpful and said he would ring back in an hour as it was very important.

He didn't and nothing wrong with pc that I couldn't sort out myself.
