DAVID.  Just watched your fred......I actually live in the village of Armitage with Handsacre.   It's getting to be of interest to planners for expansion .  I hope not in my lifetime. .   Why does everything have to be spoilt !!!!    I do know really, it's just sad. 


Oooooer......we live about 3 miles from each other, meet you at The Plum Pudding for a drink.

Not to mention his 'dishevelled' pond.......was willing him to take a dip again.

PS. Garden soil not good for aquatic plants in containers.

I've found that the O-rings crack & need replacing every now & then, especially if they are left outside over winter.

Although this lawn thingy was a tad off the wall, surely this striving for perfection/obsession is fairly common amongst gardeners. Witness the Geordies with their enormous leek & onions. giant pumpkin contests etc.

Records  include, broccoli (35 lbs.), carrot (19 lbs), beet (43 lbs), celery (49 lbs), and red cabbage (45 lbs) to name a few.

As far as I know there is no chemical control available to treat cabbage root fly. However, you may wish to try growing under fleece in future (it ain't going to go away) or use nematodes.......a species for use against cabbage root fly larvae and other pests, including the larvae of carrot fly, onion fly, leatherjackets, chafer grubs, sciarid flies, caterpillars, gooseberry sawfly, thrips and codling moth.
