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.

I got mine in a large Tescos in the pet aisle near the bird food - called The Right food for...hedgehogs - approved by wildlife hospitals etc. Says you can leave it out for a few days - looks like dried cat food but smells completely different. I'm sure chains like Peta at Home etc do it too.

Schools and colleges are out at the moment yet non motorized weeders and quality control analysis are in and neither thread has made any sense to me....I must be getting old

Oops!  I forgot to say thank you....so thank you very much to all of you. I am very grateful and quite polite! 

Sara4 - LOL - I can't believe you said that!! As I took the photo I actually bent my fingers slightly away from the camera in case it picked up the dirt!!
