This isn't a particularly good shot inasmuch as it lacks sharpness, but I took it because I liked the way the daffs seem to be peering into the water & the resulting reflections.....problem was, they were located on the far bank of a very large lake.

Talkback: How to make a box ball

I made two like this (either side of the door) from cuttings I took myself.

For a trimming guide I bent a couple of pieces of galvanised wire into a circular shape, stuck them in the pot and trimmed the initial form around that.....I removed them after getting the rough shape I was looking for and now do it free-hand.

Due to circumstances, I used this rubbish last year on a piece of ground I wasn't able to cultivate.....I would say that it was a 50-50 mix of lack-lustre annuals & perennial weed seed. It's going to take me years to clean the ground again.

I bought mine via Amazon....you should read their dissatisfied reviews, unless Amazon has zapped them, as they tend to do.

David, you've changed your avatar 

Yes, just messing about, re a query in Camera Corner.

Don't you like it? I know my knitted snail was liked by some.

I'm with Mr Flowerydew with this....Moneymaker is pretty tasteless.

I think to have the true home-grown/greenhouse taste, they need to be slightly acidic...for me that would be Gardener's Delight or Sungold.
