Nice to get a real bargain from Tesco Gary - not a common occurrence in my experience

Help please!

No cicadas in the UK Vishu


However, if they were I'd agree with you to let them be.  We have stag beetles in the UK which have a similar life cycle ... the larrvae live in rotting wood ... they're becoming quite rare now.

Back home from GC with three bags of JI No 3, and a big bag of hort. grit which is what I went for.  Somehow I have also acquired a yellow speckled hellebore and a pair of Fiskars secateurs - thank heavens for birthday gift vouchers

Couldn't find a Mahonia aquifolium anywhere ...

What to plant in shade under trees?

Morning Craig - good to hear how you're getting on - we had a similar patch which we now call 'the Wilderness'.  It has lamium, vinca, iris foetidissima, snowdrops, narcissus pseudonarcissus (the wild daffodils)  ferns (ones that are ok in dry soil) primula vulgaris, cyclamen coum and hellebores, and I'm planning on mahonia aquifolium towards the back of the area.  They all appear to be happy and thriving, as long as I don't let it dry out too much in dry spells during the summer.

The Shady Bank is smothered with Cyclamen hederifiolium Alba seedlings. If anyone wants some I can bring a trowel full in a takeaway carton.
