KEF - i've just been thinking the same - which bits of my garden can i get at to tidy up, without treading on the soil. Think i have some i can tackle this weekend - provided the rain holds off

I'm afraid that some of the plant reviews are one of the blips on the forum - many of us seem to have posted hundreds of reviews, when we haven't at all - it's on the list for the techies to sort out.

Good morning all  blue skies here but a definite nip in the air - it's the coldest I've felt on my morning walk, even though I was a bit later than usual.  

((hugs)) and good wishes to Fidget and all those who are having a tough time at the moment - positive thoughts winging your way - and if you need a winge, that's part of what we're here for

Clari, I was looking through the Sarah Raven catalogue last night and thinking of this query - it's full of possibilities and as it's illustrated your friend could point out just what she likes

I wonder whether she'd think purple penstemons were 'wild-like' ? 

How do i find out if we have any hedgehogs?

Yes, the neighbourhood cats know the route in  there's a fringe of fluff caught on the wood of the archway through the fence - but they know they're not welcome and now I'm at home more I'm endeavouring to re-educate them

We have cut holes in our fence (hedgehog gates) especially so that the hedgehogs can come and go around the neighbourhood - hedgehogs need to cover a fair distance every night to feed and to meet up for romantic liaisons - one of the causes of the decline in hedgehog population is the increase in solid fencing
