You can peg the basket to the ground using tent pegs, then the dog really can't get at the bird food 

I need alot of help with three huge raised stone flower beds.

Hi terri 

To give us a better idea of your options, could you post some pics of the flower beds on here - to post pictures click on the little tree icon in the toolbar above where you type your post and follow the instructions 

It would also be good to know which way the garden faces.

BL - I love oysters .............. but they really don't love me - in fact they're waging a vendetta against me - Christmas before last was 'wiped out' due to oyster poisoning and it wasn't the first time they'd had a go at me so sadly,Never Again!!!

I've got a check up on the 24th, but I had a filling come out the other day - I was hoping they could do that at the same time but apparently they can't - filling will be done this Thursday - thank goodness for my Bus Pass 

New Garden!

Simon, cut the buddleias down to knee height about now and give them a sprinkling of Fish Blood and Bone and you'll be well rewarded.

How close to the conservatory is the one you're worried about?  

In 50+ years of gardening I've never met a garden buddleia whose roots damaged a building.  

The only ones I know that have done that are the ones that grow from seeds blown in the wind which take root in cracks in mortar and on rooftops.

Mike, unless Zoomer is keeping chickens on the plot, Reynard may turn out to be an ally in the war on rabbits
