Just checked the temp - it's falling now but it got to 30.7C in the shade a little while ago - no wonder I'm dripping ...

Hello Dd, good to see you   Get a man in to do the hedges, saves falling out with the OH 'cos of nagging, and anyway, it's what he goes out to work for, isn't it?

Loathe soft play places with a passion - they weren't about when Wonky was small, and I first came across them when working for Children's Services - a good place to get to know parents and observe their parenting - but I hate the places - all that noise and no fresh air

How far apart were they planted?

When were they planted and how tall are they?

Not real glass but clear Perspex.

We have a similar one (it's really useful) although I think the timber part of ours is slightly weightier.  It's fine in our sheltered garden in Norfolk, but if your garden is exposed to strong gusty winds I'd find a way to fix it - maybe metal brackets securing it to the wall or fence - or maybe fix a 'floor' across the bottom and lay some concrete blocks or similar on it perhaps?

This is ours

Looking forward to trying to  help with your lawn

Oh, no it doesn't work for iPhones - can you upload the pics to a photo-hosting site and post the link?  Or have you access to a tablet or laptop or ............... almost anything but an iPhone?

The site is undergoing some changes and they're going to make it much more compatible with phones etc, but that doesn't help you and your lawn today ... sorry

make sure BM doesn't come along and berate you for cruelty to cabbage whites.

Not being cruel to them Hosta - there's three straggly plants left over still in the modules in a corner of the garden where such things get put and then overlooked - they're welcome to them if they like
