Yes Topbird - I know that GC and farm shop - they enticed one of OH's colleagues away to join them .  That being said, I've bought some very good plants there at reasonable prices.  

Welcome back Hosta

Not a 'blonde' moment Lyn, that was the plan for yesterday but it got postponed as I felt poorly - OH found fish curry in the freezer for yesterday

Pam, I'm really sorry about your old dog, but wish you much joy with your new one - we shall expect photos and a progress report you know

As I understand it the males bury themselves in the sludge at the bottom of the pond and the females hibernate on land

We went with a heavy duty pvc liner - the preformed ones are hellish in my experience

Did your parents let you play with mud when you were a child - if not, now's your chance

Best to cut back hard in the early spring, just as it starts into growth  - but you can remove some of the top growth now to stop it waving about in the winter wind

Make sure the  frogs can get out of the tubs - at this time of year the females leave the water to hibernate on land.

You can cut it hard back - it'll grow again from the base - and then tie it in as it grows, don't wait until the branches have become stiff and unwieldy
