I think the thing is that someone has already tried to gravel that garden ...............

Hello again folks - it's been cool here all day but I did get the washing dry and did pot on my Begonia semperflorens and the Fuchsia Hawkshead went into a bigger pot until I decide where it's going to live. 

Panda, glad you've had a good day
