Garden and Gardeners World back issues

Posted: 30/07/2014 at 20:01

The ones I give away are quite elderly - they stay on my bookshelves for two or three years before getting passed on. 

Dare I say.

Meanwhile there's queries to answer - a chap needs advice about a new lawn mower and someone else wants to grow a laurel hedge - surely someone can help 

Garden and Gardeners World back issues

When I worked I used to take a few for the staff room.  Now my daughter has some, then she hands them back and swaps them for some newer ones - then I take them to the local GP practice for the waiting room.  The receptionist said they're very popular

Hello folks   I've been such a good girl  - instead of playing in the garden I've spent all day waxing and polishing the downstairs floors - rolling heavy rugs and heaving furniture - the floor looks lovely (I really should do it more often )

Who is this please?

I think it's a Black & Yellow Longhorn Beetle  http://www.uksafari.com/longhorn_black_and_yellow.htm 

from what I can find out there are several types, one of which is also known as the Wasp Beetle because it looks so much like a wasp http://www.wildlifetrusts.org/species/wasp-beetle 

Who is this please?

Oh Thank You Neighbour!
