Oh   I didn't realise Lovely that you're so appreciated tho - good of you to give them the opportunity to be so nice

Knees are such a PITA (it that's not an anatomical impossibility ). 

A food-forum friend in Germany injured her knee a couple of years ago but has been fine since, then last week she stepped backwards out of their camper van and missed the step!  They had to cancel their Easter trip away

when I left school in 1979 and started working in a GC, I asked my manager which was the best weedkiller: " a stainless steel hoe" wise words, never forgotten.

Hear hear!!!

Flies & Ladybirds!

Hello Paul and Welcome

Lots of advice here http://www.bbc.co.uk/breathingplaces/bug_home/ .  There's no rush as the ladybirds and lacewings need the 'home' for the winter, not right now.

The best thing you can do to encourage ladybirds, lacewings and other beneficial insects is not to use any pesticides.    And don't forget that for most of the year wasps are busy eating aphids so welcome them into your garden too

Don't worry about the spiders - we really can't micro-manage nature - it'll sort itself out as long as we don't poison it

It wouldn't be the first time I'd done it either - thank heavens I've got it set to record!

More coffee?

Black ants all over my acer.

Does the acer need potting on?  If the leaves are a bit droopy maybe it's potbound and can't get enough water?

I always get tomatoes popping up and last year I had a Crown Prince squash among the runner beans - we've only just finished eating the produce from it!  I've also got an avocado tree growing between the compost heaps - it's survived the winter

Anyone able to identify this plant?

Brazen Hussy is gorgeous, and doesn't spread wildly like the native ones.
