 This plant is spreading along and smells of mint. Is it mint or something else,I am planning on chucking it out but wanted to check it wasn't a beauty beforehand.

I would like some help finding a good supplier of agapanthus that sells them in 2litre pots not 9cm ones.

I would like value for money.

Thanks

Wow fairygirl,wish I could see that.

My wife just said that we shouldn't have to supervise them in the garden,so I will take your design on-board when I do it when my 3 year old is in school.

But you are right edd,you know your own children but other people's kids might be totally different. I mean,how many children do you know that call you stinkypump!? But I am sure mine aren't the only ones singing songs from the film frozen.

I think they will stay indoors. I want to see frogspawn,dragonflies,,water boatmen and anything else that wants to live in it.

I want to relive my childhood with looking at frogspawn and froglets and watching swimming larvae go about their business.

It is for practical reasons too. I don't have an enormous garden,so I wouldn't want skipping kids and football's,as well as my schnauzer to end up in there. They could play near it safely. Or against it! Kids don't always listen as well.

Hi,I am trying to convince my wife about building a raised pond. Which the kids can enjoy and any local wildlife. I will build a ramp up for frogs too.

I am feeling giddy as my kids won some goldfish at a fair,so I am thinking about the next step.

Hopefully not the naughty one!

Any advice please.

Oops. How bad do I feel to be that presumptuous? Still it is random and funny.

Agapathus

I am led to believe that varieties that are evergreen are not as hardy as deciduous ones. This has something to do with which side of south Africa they are from. Google queen mum. Bought some from a specialist at tatton park flower show,expect to pay more but you will get more varieties to choose from with expert advice.

Pound land sell agapanthus. Just buy loads and shove into a container. Hey presto!
