Iwant a biggergarden wrote (see)

The height  of yours is taller and the leaves were at the base and the green leaves on yours might of been there but just looked like flower buds but was on a bus so didnt get a good look at it.

So nothing at all like it ...... yes, do as Nutcutlet says ..... get back on the bus

We're there with you in spirit, and don't worry, if we notice anything that shouldn't be there we'll stand in front of it and direct people to the cakes - if Verdun's left any

Oh, another shower - perhaps the sun is a little way off yet OH has just popped outside to fold up the seats on the terrace.

Deer oh Dear !

It's the time of year when the 'velvet' covering the new antlers becomes very itchy and the stags need to rub them to get the velvet off, and how wonderful to watch it happening in your own garden.  However, it's not doing your rowan any good. 

As Logan says, some sort of fence - barricade will do the trick.  It needn't be permanent - just from now until the end of July should be enough - but you may have to do it again each year. 

Good luck

Any chance of some photos of the deer?

Good morning all

We too seem to have had a little shower overnight and now it's brightening up. 

I'm so excited - we had supper on the terrace yesterday evening and I noticed that our runner beans are flowering!  I'm sure they're earlier than in other years, and yet we've had such a cold spring.  We're growing White Lady this year. 

Wonky has loads of ladybird larvae on her Mermaid rose - literally hundreds of them!  That's where they all are

Hi Sam

You may be new to gardening but it sounds as if you've definitely got some good gardening instincts - watering before digging them up was a definite good thing!

Can you post some pics of your shrubs to give us more idea what your options are?
