So I can borrow convertible again, then? 

Of course Verdun - you're very welcome  but this time can you vac the boot out when you've finished with it - it's still full of compost and leaves and you're the only one who carries plants in it 

what to plant under an oak tree, sunny though......

Susie - I didn't have time to post a reply as I had to go out, but I'd noticed that your question had gone onto Page 4 and was unlikely to get noticed there so I just posted 'Bumping' so that someone would see and reply to you.

Hope that's ok

Happy to learn Verdun - the only brooms I've been responsible for were in my Aged Ps' garden, and given that Ma had never pruned them as she'd been told they would sulk, I left well alone.  

Sounds like 'start as you mean to go on' is the way to treat them.

Don't think broom likes being pruned.  My understanding is that they're not long-lived plants anyway, so let them do their thing and then when they peg out you can replace them.

BB - I was going to PM you my mobile number, but it says you don't accept PMs - can you PM me then we can swap numbers?  

Eek! Hedgehog in the pond....

So glad that you found it Alan   Can you get some plastic covered chicken wire and make a sort of scramble net, maybe over some logs or rocks at the edge of the pond, so that if this happens again the hedgehogs  can climb out.
