What's this colourful leaf plant?

Keep it indoors now. You could take cuttings from those longer shoots now so you have more plants in the spring.

Bigger boxes would be great, and if they were on 'wheels/castors' there's no way they could be considered permanent is there?

Absolutely agree Hosta, but that is why I've said the vets have to have the majority say.  I like the individual breeds to have their individual appearances - it's when these are overly accentuated that they are bad for the breed.  The breed standard should be adhered to, not pushed to the nth degree.

Morning Hosta  and the rest of you 

When I'm in charge of everything (and it can't be long now, can it?  ) all dogs will be licensed and neutered/spayed except for those registered for breeding - these will need a Certificate of Soundness issued by a panel of specialist vets, and all potential matings will have to be approved by a panel consisting of KC breed specialists and vets (with vets in the majority).  Progeny of unapproved matings will not be registered and must be neutered - anyone breaking this law will have the dogs removed from their possession and they will not be allowed to keep another pet ... ever! 

It's probably a good job I'm going out for the day

Snowy I think you should do some googling and find pictures of gardens that you like and give us some links so that we can identify the plants for you.  

What have I got?

Hmmm ... looks to me like Annual Wall Rocket Diplotaxis muralis 

or one of its cousins.

Chicky - enjoy 

I love that 'green haze' over the fields after the autumn sowing or in the early spring.  Looking forward to seeing it in the front garden.  The weather here is perfect for lawn sowing . after yesterday's rain it's a bright and sunny morning and warming up nicely here in Norfolk, with a pale blue sky and not hardly a cloud to be seen. Wood pigeons are sitting on the rooftops in their pairs and the sun is lighting their breasts glowing pink.

We're off here later this morning as we want to look at the traditional decorative painting on the showmen's wagons and fairground rides - we've been meaning to go all summer and they close on Friday to get ready for their Christmas Spectacular, so thought we'd better get a move on

Good morning all 

Maybe BL can have someone to stay ... 

What ya going to see Chicky? 

Night temps no lower than 11.3C in the back garden, often a little cooler at the front but as the pack of grass seed says that it's a new mix that should germinate in 3-4 days at temps over 3C, I'm expecting to see activity out there soon ... 

App for garden design

It's a question that has been asked here before - so far no one here appears to know of suitable garden design software or any apps that will do the job.
