As long as they're dead when she brings them in Stacey - it's when they bring live ones in then let go of them that problems can start!!!

Gabion walls for sound-proofing garden

Posted: 11/03/2016 at 07:05

I've always found that the sound of a running water feature masks the sound of voices. 

Place it close enough to the neighbour's sitting area and with any luck they'll spend most of their time going indoors to use the loo.

Chicky ((HUGE HUGS))   so sorry to hear Mr C is poorly again (Get Well Soon Mr C - it's Spring!!!).  Probably best to keep him away from Pat's biccies for the time being.  I hope you and Chicklet are able to relax and enjoy her birthday - I take it you've got a nice lunch planned

Advice on a Yard

Hi Connie

Whereabouts are you?  What summer and winter temperatures do you get?

Ah, I've just seen from earlier threads that you're in Yorkshire - I was wondering whether you might be in the US as they call their gardens 'yards', but you're talking about an English Back Yard

My front garden only gets sun in the afternoon (west facing).  Some of the plants that are happy there are Clematis cirrhosa Freckles, Clematis viticella Etoile Violette, Sarcococca confusa, Salvia greggii, various hellebores, aquilegias, Hesperis Matronalis, Echinaceas and the lovely purple Aster frikartii monch.  They're all really popular with the bees, butterflies, moths and hoverflies etc

Whoops! I've done it again ......

Tutu is a gorgeous hellebore - I've had mine for about 4 years now - it's also had some seedlings which I've potted up and am growing on - it'll be interesting to see how they turn out
