Japanese Knotweed on neighbour’s property

Posted: 04/10/2015 at 18:37

I'm just wondering whether, if you're sure the JKW is coming from the neighbouring property, it might be worth you taking the Housing Association to the Small Claims Court seeking the cost of you hiring a professional company to remedy the problem caused by their neglect of their responsibilities?

Advice for beginners on climbers, please

Campsis radicans will love it

One of the hardier passifloras would also be fine there

jo , it was flying around for a bit, landing, hiding under plants , taking off again for about half an hour. 

Forgive my stupidity, but are merlins a bit scarce?

Yes ... think they're on the Amber list ... I've never seen one ... very jealous here. 

Look them up on the RSPB website.

I've never found honeysuckle to do well in a pot as they're woodland plants that like a long cool shady rootrun.

identify some plants for me please?

The first one isn't Creeping buttercup - it's hard to tell as it's very floppy, but it looks like a cinquefoil which  spreads like wildfire here and is regarded as a weed in this garden.

1 & 2 looks like cinquefoil

4 Creeping Jenny (Lysimachia nummularia)

5 a sedum but no idea which one

Can anyone identify these two varieties?

I love pheasant cooked like this with the addition of one or two chopped quince along with the two apples and veg in the cooking pot.  Absolutely delicious.

I was DEFINITELY talking about Pat Archer!!!   and yes, that flippin' Rob needs shooting too Topbird - you pin him down, I'll do the deed!

We're back from a lovely lunch sitting in the sun by the river, watching cows on the grazing marshes and boats on the Broads - super super lunch in fab location - highly recommended for anyone wanting a trip out into Norfolk for a meal. 

Great to see friend too - don't see her very often as she's a busy journo in the big smoke, but her cat died and she needed a nice weekend to cheer her up. 

If you like cats and you don't mind weeping a bit, you can read about her cats here

Now I'm flollopped on the sofa with a mug of coffee
