There is always the takeaway pansy

Now for the come dine with me , ...........

Who would I ask ?

I would ask Alan Tichmarsh along with his groundforce  gang then they could work for their supper. I'd of course do them a three course er with a good bottle of plonk  for after they've given my garden a full cottage look.

If Alan was already booked it would be my very close second choice of Monty, but considering his health conditions I would pick his brains clean. !

Northern lass 2

Looking at your garden and thinking of what you said I can fully understand where your coming from!  

Your garden, it's beautiful and dare I say it but  looks relaxing too. .

And looks very established ( if that's the right word    )      

Can I ask you what the stone feature is in your  first photo ?

Reason I'm  curious is we found one in our out buildings when we moved in here. I have always though it was for grinding corn  as the top is separate but was placed on top as though the two belonged together.

Hope my borders eventually look something like yours, your doing very well , it is hard with a big garden from scratch but worth it. Gran

I wonder if you can cover it over with black poly sacks held down with's just a thought. 

I'm sure someone else on here will know if it would work

I agree with obelixx, time spent in this case means enjoyment but I do have the time and I suppose not everyone does.

walking round a garden that you have grown from seed ,cuttings  AND bargain basement plants makes my day.

 it also depends on the size of your my case I have a large spread and apart from having herbaceous borders I like to grow veg, a gravel bed for succulents the rest I'm still planning.

With  buying a plant from a nursery you are seeing what you are getting even if it is a few pounds more.
