Fairygirl, gardeningfantic is not talking about the main thread board but personal message sending if you click on 'public profile'

Gardeningfantic, just went back into 'my messages' and although it says I have sent you a message it also says above and below it - 1 message returned but I don't you if you have replied and I can't access it or my original message has been returned - all very confusing !

Ok, now I understand. I have just sent you a personal message without a hitch (1st time I have used that section of the board). Let's see if anyone else has a problem as the day goes on...

I'm sorry Joyce. I don't understand. Are the houses in your road - council properties, housing association or privately owned?

Actually I would ask your neighbours as if they have recently bought their properties the details of the private road and the upkeep will be fresh in their memories as it would have been brought up by their solicitors and in the search they would have had to do in order to purchase the property.

Stacey, if you look where the plant was cut down, what remains - cut off stems, sawn through leaves, trunks?

I would contact the planning dept of your local council and see if it is an adopted road and ask them who is responsible for the upkeep of the road. If it is privately owned then you must be paying something to someone for the upkeep of the road....Are you new to the area - can you ask neighbours if this is an new problem , what has happened in the past? Are your bins collected from outside your property or from the end of the cul de sac where it meets the main road? Who is responsible for you water services?

Thinking of the Edinburgh festival at this time of year - this one was the favourite last year (I think)....

Hedgehogs. Why can't they just share the hedge?

Sorry, I assumed (wrongly) that they were in pots!! That's why I suggested moving them around....

Maybe move them into a different position - swap some of those that are doing well with those that are not doing so well and see what happens. If we are going to get more warm weather and possibly a mild September you could still get flowers.

I would be inclined to give them a feed of tomato feed once a week - that's what I usually do at this time of year to keep my baskets and troughs going into autumn.
