So will my tadpoles be ok in there planter pond then for winter? read that they are good at surviving low temperatures....

 

They can survive low temperatures, but not being frozen - they also need plenty of oxygen in the water otherwise they'll suffocate - oxygen cannot get into the water if it's covered with ice.  The sludge in the bottom of the pond is where pond creatures spend the winter.

Tree advice

Another thought is that if this is the road verge there may be another problem - the local authority have a duty to maintain the road verges, cutting back foliage/shrubs etc which may impact on visibility.  

You can't just plant things on the road verge if it doesn't belong to you - it'll get cut down.

Pat - I tend not to watch the tv news a lot - I know what goes on - I used to work in child protection - but I don't need it in my home and in my head.  I listen to the news and politics programmes on the radio - it doesn't mess with my emotions and sleep pattern so much. 

Panda have a good day and plan yourself an easy weekend - going back to work after a break knocks the stuffing out of you for a while!

To upload photos you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post and follow the instructions.  Afraid it doesn't work for iphones ... yet.

Another option is to upload your photos to a photo-hosting site and post the link.

My thought is that your beech hedging will reach 6' much faster without the competition of trees growing nearby.  Beech hedging grows quite quickly

Problems with butternut squash

Hi Jacqui and welcome to the forum

The only squashes I grew in this garden this year were courgettes and it's been a shocking year - I've a feeling that although we've had good temperatures here in the East of England, low light levels might be a contributory factor
