..... Awful afternoon and my new puppy doesn't like the rain. Such fun walking in the garden in the pouring rain 4.00 in the morning when she wakes up and I know she'll need a wee.

They pretend they don't like it, but Labradors love being out in the wet and poodles are designed for retrieving from water, so don't believe her - she's having you on LOL


Come on Andy!!!

Hedgehog spotted

I leave some food and water  out in a covered feeding station - I check it most days and top it up as necessary.  The hedgehogs do wake and have a wander in mild spells. 

HELP! Something is growing on the terracotta Pot!

I think it looks different because it's 'new' - as it spreads it will look more like the weathered pots.

lawn problem

Hello Nick

In what way/s does the lawn look undernourished?

Is it the colour of the grass, density or ...... ?

Can you tell us more about the lawn (age, sun/shade, soil type, management regime etc).

A photo or two might be helpful

Lilies in pot

I have some in a pot which regrow year after year (I feed after flowering and repot in the spring).  They spend every winter outside in a sheltered corner.  I think I'd leave yours in the cold frame if you have room there, and then plant out in the spring before they start into growth. 

If there's no room in the coldframe because of other more fragile plants, they'll be fine in a sheltered corner - if you think the pot might be damaged by frost wrap it in bubblewrap but leave the top open
