Why has a thread disqppeared? Who decided?

I'm sure it was nothing to do with the subject matter - there was an aggressive post targeting an individual

The ash tree has two quite large trunks from just a couple of feet above the ground, so it's like felling two trees really - hence it costing £550!!!  Glad he knocked a bit off for the logs.  However, that does include grinding the stump out - that'll happen in a couple of weeks' time.

I've been thinking of the old Blue Peter Garden that Percy Thrower created - it had a sunken garden with a pond in the middle of it - but I wouldn't do anything like that without putting in some proper drainage.

Anyone heard from Lyn lately?  She's not posted since the 15th - hope she's ok

And what sort of soil do you have?

Do you know why the area is permanently wet?

We don't have any open fires here - we offered the timber to next door who have a log burner, but he said he didn't want to have split it and he'd just had a load delivered - so the tree feller is taking it away and knocking £70 off the price.

Apart from anything else, let the birds furtle around and get at any slugs etc that you may have - putting a membrane over the top just give the slugs protection to carry on breeding through the winter - you don't want that to happen

It'll be sunnier than the other beds, so some grasses and perennials that like more sun than the ones I can grow in the rest of the garden, are the plan Verdun - mainly southwest facing and with shelter from the remaining ash tree which is in the SE corner of the garden.
