Dove - your pond looks fantastic, and already looks like it has always been there.  You carry on sitting and staring in to it - more entertaining than half the stuff on telly at the moment

What a gorgeous garden punkdoc - i have just spent a happy 10 minutes browsing round it.  Is the stream in the pictures the one that nearly flooded earlier in the year?  And what are the purple tipped pink flowers in pic 14?  Really unusual.

Artjak and break23 - i can get to Worthing without too much trouble (i am near Guildford) - all of my contributions are growing from seed, so will not be ready for transporting til late May/ early June - but i will keep watching this thread and will make contact nearer the time.

Have spent the day making trips to the local stables to fill our clapped out landrover with FYM.  5 trips, and 40 wheelbarrows later and my roses are now fed, my sweetpea bed is prepared, and there is a lovely mountain of black wormy stuff ready for use over the next few weeks

Meerkat - as you say, most strange

Tracey - thanks for sharing your garden photos.  Love the white blossom on the tree - is it a fruit tree?  My tulip pots are showing buds now too - but no flowers yet ..... Oh, the anticipation

Love your pics Ecobaby - great to see gardens packed with plants in every corner .  

My lavenders are nowhere near flowers yet Meerkat - is yours near a house wall?

I've got a similar problem with oaks at the moment, from the bumper crop of acorns i didn't clear properly from the borders last autumn.  At the moment i am just taking the tops off, figuring that without their stem and leaves they won't regrow.  Is that right, or should i be scrupulously removing roots as well??
