This topic has been raised before and as I said then, I had found a Elizabeth 1st coin dated 1562 in some gravel I have had since the mid-sixties....I have pics, but I've already shown them before and would hate to bore peeps with them.

I was thinking salt leeching into the soil at some point.

Get you at playtime David, I like mine.

Can't wait!

Yes, nice little flowers for a few days in spring, then it looks rubbish for the rest of the year....and oh. so invasive.

Perhaps worth noting that salt kills plants too.

How sad David  

For sure! I read it in an article by Gay Search, not long after Arthur had died.

I've not visited since Arthur B emigrated to New Zealand, Forester, but I think it's probably part of a bye-pass of Ombersley.....deffo a road.

SP - Presuming this is directed to me.

No reason at all (if they have been hardened-off) why they can't be planted out now. As I've said many times previously, they don't care for cold maybe fleece them until they get established.

Push a few twiggy bits into the soil around them for support...of course, they'll need something more substantial later.
