Well, he does like cake ......... but he gets a lot of it at work - he's their official cake tester  so it'll have to be very special cake to keep him out of the studio after he's finished digging the pond .....

Lisa, I'm better than I was now that I'm retired and don't work next door to one GC - but it doesn't help that my OH works in a farm shop on the same site as another GC and of course I go there to do the food shopping ......... well, once the car's parked there ...............

.... Can I get a loan of your under gardener please 

He says he's very expensive

Where to put greenhouse?

My neighbours have got a greenhouse - problem is they use it

Have a look at the stems of the fourth one - if they've got some prickles on them, they'll probably be autumn raspberries - if they are cut them down to the ground and give them a sprinkling of fish, blood and bone and you'll have new shoots before long which will give you fruit in the late summer/autumn
