There's an idea - a brace of ferrets!!! 

how much water for my tomatoes

Posted: 08/05/2014 at 21:23

I only water when the soil is dry and the foliage is starting to flag.  

Overwatering causes the perfect conditions for fungal growth and blight.

Easy to tell the difference, lilac smells lovely. Privet smells dreadful

Changing colour of Lilac

Lilacs are often grafted onto a rootstock, sometimes of lilac and sometimes privet is used.  However I thought that the lilac used as a rootstock is the common lilac colour, so if suckers had taken over the resulting flowers would be lilac not white.

I suppose the flowers are lilac, not privet .................

North, South, East or West Facing

Sorry, I misunderstood - I thought the border was against the patio, not against the fence 

North, South, East or West Facing

As I understand it you have a north facing garden.  I would say that your cottage garden border is also north facing unless it is sloping towards the south.

Don't be embarrassed - sometimes something we've read or heard just throws us out of kilter a bit - in your job I imagine you've  come across that before
