Back indoors - it's bitterly cold out there - I've come indoors and put a thicker woolier cardi on and switched the central heating on - just up the road Nut is basking in tropical sunshine ... it's not fair!!!

The new GW has a leaflet with an offer from Claire Austin, including an Achillea 'Terracotta' - it looks gorgeous - I'm very tempted

Hi Mums I am   Think most of us are out in our gardens - I've just come in 'cos it's bitterly cold out there 

Can you tell us a bit more about your hedge please?  When did you plant it and where, and how big is it now?

A photograph or two would be helpful - to post a pic on here you click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post and follow the instructions.  Sadly it doesn't seem to work on tablets or phones.

There's a lovely white lilac growing opposite our house in a north-east facing spot and it's doing really well - it's probably up to our bedroom windowsill in height - but of course you can keep them under that height.

Don't dig your plants out - I'm sure there's no need.  

Remove the fungi as you have been doing if you want to but things will get better when they've used up all the organic matter in the soil.
