Lyn ((hugs))  little things can assume a great importance

When I was a child I used to go out around the field margins, wearing shorts sandals and short sleeved tee shirts,  and we'd pick sacks full of the common hogweed for our pet rabbits, Ma's milking goats and for any pigs that were a bit under the weather.  It never did me any harm. 

Giant hogweed is a foreign introduction and can be nasty if you brush against it with bare skin, particularly I believe if you then get bright sunshine on the rash.  That being said, it won't leap out and attack you, as the Daily Mail seems to suggest , neither does it's presence herald the End of the World!!! 

if you see a very large umbellifer and you're not sure which it is just keep away from it.

Morning Verdun

I had Love Your Garden on - were they gardeners or set designers???  If they did that to my garden I'd probably ........ cry   (at the very least).

Ah, light begins to dawn - you're in Oz, you're an Aries and you're a gardener


Are you seeking advice, offering it or publicising your gardening business?

 If the latter, you're probably wasting your time on here - most of our members (with a few notable exceptions ) are in the UK, and my guess is you'd charge too much mileage to come and tend my lawns

Good morning Oscar - whereabouts is your garden/yard?

I'm confused by the information in your Public Profile - are you giving tips on lawncare, or seeking them?

I knew there was a reason we didn't get a dog - it's bad enough being woken by hedgehogs snuffling around on the terrace

I buy plants online, but only from specialist nurseries that have a good reputation - we have a Good Guy thread on here with recommendations - I wouldn't spend more than a fiver on plants via Ebay!
