Lisa, I'm better than I was now that I'm retired and don't work next door to one GC - but it doesn't help that my OH works in a farm shop on the same site as another GC and of course I go there to do the food shopping ......... well, once the car's parked there ...............

.... Can I get a loan of your under gardener please 

He says he's very expensive   

And anyway, he has more pond to dig tomorrow - we've just decided it's going to be even bigger

Where to put greenhouse?

My neighbours have got a greenhouse - problem is they use it

Have a look at the stems of the fourth one - if they've got some prickles on them, they'll probably be autumn raspberries - if they are cut them down to the ground and give them a sprinkling of fish, blood and bone and you'll have new shoots before long which will give you fruit in the late summer/autumn

I'd put it where the cold-frame is   You lucky thing

Thanks KEF - I knew they produced bulblets, but I really didn't expect this many!

I shall treat mine as you treat yours, and tell them you said so

Mmm, they're a bit blurry and they don't enlarge when I click on them  but from the ones that I can get a bit of a clue about, I think that the first is a culinary thyme, the third is culinary rosemary, and the fourth might be autumn fruiting raspberries. 

The fifth is the thyme again. 

Can't really see the others clearly enough to hazard a guess. Sorry.
