Thanks Rb

Can't go with vigilante system - how is that different to the kneecappings, beatings and 'disappearances' that have happened for so long in Northern Ireland?

Rb, my apologies   you're absolutely right - the incident I'd remembered hearing about and looked up is historical - there was indeed another incident on 29th August

Just read up on it - it happened two years ago - the case was in court today.  The man has been diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic   He's been sent to jail.  I hope he gets the treatment he needs.

No one who is well would do that - must be severe mental health issues

That sounds like a bizzee day Verdun   Glad Spike's ok - don't either of you go catching a chill now!  You'd better have a tot or three of something medicinal and Spike needs a nice warm hottie bottle to snuggle up with in his basket

Thought you would   It'll look fabulous - Verdun has a very good eye for such things.

The great thing is that it's evergreen, so even in the winter your garden will look fabulous.

You can grow some varieties outside but they're very weather dependant - not tried growing them in containers - they need rich soil, lots of water and sunshine

Hi Steve

I find it's best done on my hands and knees with an old kitchen peeling knife,  (now relegated to the garden shed for that sort of job) just cutting vertically around the edge of the stones.  It doesn't take long and doesn't have to be done every time you mow - just as it needs it.
