Our regulars are only coming for food occasionally at the moment - it was the same last year and the year before - this time of year they're meeting up with other hedgehogs for 'other activities' - yours may even be a female and possibly she has little ones somewhere  I'm sure he/she'll be back - maybe with friends or family

That's lovely Tracey - you are a lucky girl   I'm not really into orchids, although I used to paint them, and we have a Phalenopsis in the bathroom, but last time we stayed in Cornwall there was a Dendronium in the cottage we rented - it was gorgeous

Still haven't worked out how to add my location to the map.

Can someone answer this?

Top left hand corner of the map there are some symbols - one is a balloon - grab it and take it to your approximate location on the map - a box will open for you to put your Board Name in.  Then Save

Doesn't look like any hemp to me.

red robin and lavender

I think Red Robin needs to be planted in the ground - it grows into a small tree-size - your trough really wouldn't be deep enough

Tell us more about your garden, the trough and what you want to screen.

I bought a red peony from Wilkos this spring - it was marked down to 50p because it had started to shoot in the packet.  I brought it home, potted it up and it's doing fine - a lovely healthy plant - it'll probably take a couple of years before it flowers, but what a bargain

Hi Fishy

Is this an annual, biennial or perennial? 

What does a pond need for a good ecosystem

Clari, I meant to say - I've got some of the barley straw essence and it's worked - thanks for your kind offer ((hugs))

And what a time waster a wildlife pond is  - I keep going out there and sitting and gazing at the water and all the insects it's attracting - the air is buzzing with insects - far more than there have ever been in that part of the garden - I'm spending hours out there!
