Hello   I'm back - solicitor impressed with my files and is going to deal with probate for both parents, picking up Pa's from where we'd got to when Ma turned poorly.  


Lots of banging, crashing and flashing going on in the heavens this evening, but it was dry today - I had my top down driving down to Suffolk and back 


Looking forward to our outing tomorrow BL - the forecast looks fine, but I'll bring my brolly just in case.  


Now I'm going to flollop on the sofa 'cos I'm

They'll be F1 hybrids - the product of the cross-pollination of two different parent varieties.  This is why they are so expensive - the cross has to be reproduced afresh each season.

Yes snowberry.  Used to be used in woodlands as pheasant cover.  Suckers and spreads. 

Can anyone please help with naming this plant?

Aphid damage? 

lawn fungus

There will still be finer tree roots under the lawn.  Just wait until the grass is dry and use a stiff broom, knock them down and sweep them off (add to compost heap).  


They really are doing no harm - in fact they're a sign of the rich ecological diversity in your garden. A good thing. 


They'll disappear anyway when the weather dries out.

Chicky - I know absolutely how you feel. 


Hosta if you want to post some photos on here you could email them to me then I can post them easily from my phone. I post all my pics from my phone now rather than faff around resizing them.

ive just sown beet root and Swiss chard. Pak choi does well sown now too. Early varieties of carrots are another possibility.
