Oh dear Hosta - do take it steady - knees is funny things - I know, I've got two of 'em

Apparently Wonky has fallen for that choisya on GW this evening.  I've looked it up and they sell it at Notcutts - I suppose we'd better go and have a look at the weekend

I forgot to confess to what followed me home from Homebase didn't I? 

One Water Avens (Geum rivale) - I've already got one behind the pond, but I need another. One Brunnera Jack Frost, and One Pulmonaria Trevi Fountain.  That's not a lot really is it?

Where have all my fishes gone?

I've known herons cope with more complex obstacles than yours TzsasMum - and with small gardens with dogs and people - he'll be in your garden just as the day is dawning, and he'll take whatever he can get, no matter how small, even tiddlers - he's got a family to feed at this time of year.

He's still my best bet.

vine weevil or alien bugs

My daughter has plans to develop vine weevil grubs that only eat Ground Elder roots!   .............. nothing like being ambitious

Well, they're smaller than Lyn's at the moment, you'll have to grow them on a bit - but the seed came from the National Collection in Wales  'cos it's in the same village as Aunty B, so they're a bit special - but aqulegias are pretty novice-friendly - even slugs and snails don't like them
