Then I'm afraid you need to dig down deeper and undercut the stump with your spade ....................... and then get some mates round  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Giant_Turnip

Of course - I wouldn't expect anything else. As I've said, all these things are marketing opportunities - no different to any county show, motor show, boating show, wedding fayre etc.

If you've severed the main roots, then I'd just rock it back and forth as much as you can until it's loose enough to pull out - I've never come across a really deeply rooted elder - waiting won't really get you anywhere I'm afraid.  Bite the bullet - it's cheaper than the gym

Powerful waterpistols - also keep the soil moist - they don't like digging in mud.

I'm only thinking of a little wildlife pond - more of a pool than a pond - for the frogs - we get a lot of  them visiting from next door - I'd like to make them feel at home

We've been in a recession - gardening will be one of the last businessess to rally - it won't happen until property prices really pick up properly - if they ever do.

Well done Fairygirl - I nobbled one of them but you were too quick off the mark for me to be of much use!  Sounds like real tatt doesn't it?

Chicky - I'm planning a pond too - the builders have got some work to do over the winter and I thought I'd use their muscle to do the worst of it   What sort of pond are you thinking of?
