SGL is a Ross-ette too, so she's got to be on the Poldark express. Didn't know TOPBIRD and DOve were fans as well, have to book a bigger venue.  Anyone else climb to speak =

Hi Wayne - that sounds like a garden full of potential you have there - we had similar when we moved here - as Pauline says, take your time - it'll all happen - looking forward to seeing your pics

Lily P - my son used to do business with China - they seerm to have a totally different understanding of procedures to everyone else - in the end he just gave up    I'm sure your family will get it all sorted eventually, but it will have to be done the way the Chinese want (and may, in our experience, cost more money ).

Russians in general seem far more pragmatic and reasonable.  (His ex is Russian and he's done a lot of travelling there.)

KEF, sorry you didn't enjoy your day - you should've come down to Cromer

Panda - I admire your determination

Bavbulbs - are they planted deeply enough?  The bulbs need to be at least 4" under ground  - if they're too shallow that can prevent flowering.

Good luck

Buddleia dying

That looks much better - rejuvenated!

Just an idea, next year - about the time that the contract gardeners usually perform their carry out their annual decimation of living matter in the garden - get a large sheet of cardboard and place it between the buddleia and the fence for a week or so until they've done their worst - it should help protect it from any 'splashes' of noxious stuff. 

It won't look that beautiful for a few days, but it'll look better than a semi-dead shrub
