Here you are Nigel

It might work well for sempervivums if laid on it's side ....

Panda, can you lay it on it's side and fit the broken bits to make a planter - like the one in the picture but different?

Best plants for covering artificial pond edges?

Posted: 24/03/2014 at 07:53

We're going to lift the turf around the pond and place the liner then replace the turves over the edges, and the water should then come up to the bottom of them -  hopefully it'll be ok - we're also planting ground cover and ferns etc all around so hopefully that'll spread and trail over the edges and hide them.

I've not been on here for a few days - gardening got in the way!  

I love Jack's Shack 

I once lived in a very scuzzy part of town (never dialled 999 so many times in my life as when I was there!!!) but my sanity was saved by my lovely tiny back garden which had a small seated area with a corrugated perspex roof - sitting out there during an amazing thunderstorm is one of the best and most intense memories of my life

Snug as a bug in a rug   My fig's been wrapped up too - I usually don't worry about it through the winter, but the little figs started to swell last week and I don't want them to get damaged by the frost!

Mike - that's fantastic - what an achievement - thank you 

Someone, can't remember who, once said that Old Age was proof that God has a sense of humour 

Hope you're feeling much better soon ((hugs))

Good morning Chicky - our white world went pink when the sun came up - looked like candyfloss!

Panda - I think I'd have been slightly annoyed too!!!  Hope he's getting you another one!  Where's that picture we had of the lovely little planting in a broken pot?
