If you've missed summer I've missed autumn - I've got a winter flowering hellebore (Christmas Rose) with two white buds on

It is the normal June drop Drywsdad, but two or three buckets full of water won't do it any harm.  I'd give it's roots a good soaking

Absolutely agree there Steve - I usually take dozens - if half survive I'm more than happy

Just been crawling on my hands and knees over the lawn dabbing glyphosate gel in hawkbit and dandelions - still mainly overcast here but warm.

Now to get the hoe out and tidy up the veg patch!

Hedgehog hazards

I think raising the netting will still protect against the worst depredations of pigeons and will certainly help avoid future entanglements. 

I don't net anything at the moment as I worry about just such a thing happening with hedgehogs and birds.

 I'm going to have to net the pond in autumn - I think the trick is to have the net as taut as possible and obviously to check morning and evening and as often as possible in between. 

The smaller gauge net the better! 

I think you did exactly the right thing
