If I were you I'd go on the Wild about Britain Forum and ask there

Doesn't look like any hedgehog poo we get in our garden

No I've not got a PM reply box either - I'd not noticed the connection between the big adverts and the reply box disappearing - we'd better let Daniel know on Tuesday. We can use this email address

Oooh, feet up  - tummy stuffed with roasted free range GOS pork , cider gravy, new potatoes and the last of the Swiss chard out of the garden, washed down with some Frome Valley Henney's dry cider 

Hope tomorrow's weather is at least as good as today's and hope tonight is frost free - I've taken the fleece off the figs!!!  According to the Met Office it won't go below 5C ....

Depends on the variety, when you sowed them, when you planted them and the conditions ............. 

Asian Hornet

There were alarums last year about the Asian hornet's march towards Great Britain.

 Friends in southern France have come across them - I expect they'll get here eventually 

Potato Leaf Tomato

I've grown various varieties - some with potato leaves, some with the regular ones.  I don't treat them differently because of the leaf shape.

Mrs G - RHS says your salvia is hardy in most of the UK 

It warmed up here eventually and I've been busy working on the new front border - first hoeing out the little weedlings that popped up after the last rain.  Then I planted a baby Rosa glauca , Sedum spectabile 'Abbey Dore', Hemerocallis 'Summer Wine'

Helleborus orientalis 'Tutu' and Helleborus Niger 'Christmas Carol'  Then I manoeuvred the hose pipe along the terrace, down the garden path and around to the front of the house and gave the border a thorough soaking. 

I've also been scrambling along the back of the Shady Bank, grabbing hold of wayward honeysuckle tendrils and encouraging them to stay on our side of the fence rather than head off next door and towards the marshes.

I've also discovered lots of little self-seeded Geranium phaeums - I shall pot some up, so if anyone wants one let me know.
