David - are you just being mischievous 'cos you can't get out into the garden, or have you forgotten to get your hearing aid adjusted?


If Mr D's plant pronunciation was as good as my hearing he wouldn't have said, 'Flitter arias'.

I've played it over and over - he didn't - not on our new telly anyway

hedge plants on roof planters

 One of Norman Foster's first major buildings, started in 1970 - it was given Grade 1 Listed status in 1991.  Love it   There's a swimming pool on the top there too (sadly decommissioned at the moment).  

Trench Celery

I've never grown it NGL, although I do love 'proper' celery - but as we're pretty close to the Fens we do get it from there - great to drive past and see the fields of black soil and the green tops of celery. 

Good luck!  Let us know how it goes

It's not that you can't have hedges on a roof - there's a famous one on the Willis Building in Ipswich, but it was designed for it ...

Hopefully Adam can lay our fears to rest - I'd hate to discourage a creative new gardener

You found someone working there, other than just at the checkout???????????

Anyone know what this is?

Just pull it up before it seeds.  But if you've allowed it to seed in previous years it'll take a few years to get rid of it as the seeds will be in the soil.
