I agree .... I think the brief is a bit vwoolly ...... if it's the plant that has had a big effect on gardens in the past 50 years I still say what about Cupressus Leylandii ................ but I think they're looking for positive rather than negative effects

I've just had a hobble around the garden  it wasn't all just a lovely dream!!!  It really happened!!! 

And now OH has set the sprinkler up for the beans, lettuces and the courgettes that Wonky planted for me ... he's watered the pots and the plants Wonky planted in the Sunny Corner and will top the pond up in a bit.  I'm back on the sofa with muesli and yoghurt 

Lets see what's been going on .........

Good morning all  Good luck to Littlest Chicklet and wishing fortitude to her and her family 

Sorry Hosta didn't get a good night ((hugs)). Afraid I slept like a log after a day watching Wonky in the garden ... So looking forward to going out there today and looking at it all again.

There's a camera icon above right of the text box. Click on it and follow instructions. If pic doesn't upload reducing it's size usually works.
