I find it interesting that the questioner actually says 'in our garden'..........

Why are you talking about this not being on the boundary then? You already know that the boundary in on or next to it? You are just confusing what the OP question is.

They tend to have a mound of leaves and then grow long stalks with seed heads on.

Is there any sign of new leaf growth in the mound. It might need some time to grow back before the seed stalks are produced (you do not mention how long). Try a high Nitrogen feed.

Fruit and nut never hangs around long enough in this household for the dog to get at it. OH sees to that.

No need to question it jo47. Just look at diagram 4 on the link I provided. If you need further legislation then take it up with the Gov but it is all there in the link and they issued the laws. Obviously good communication between neighbours would be ideal and I appreciate that we don't all have that. 

I worked in the planning department for a very old and expensive conservatory company before they went bust so I know how fast planning laws can change but they are basically the same now as they were then.

It certainly is a party wall jo47. (see diagram 4) 

"Some works on a party wall may be so minor that service of notice under the Act would be generally regarded as not necessary.

Things like:

• drilling into a party wall to fix plugs and screws for ordinary wall units or shelving

• cutting into a party wall to add or replace recessed electric wiring and sockets

• removing old plaster and replastering

may all be too minor to require a notice under the Act.

However, the key point is whether your planned work might have any possible consequences for the structural strength and support functions of the party wall as a whole, or cause damage to the Adjoining Owner's side of the wall. If you are in doubt about whether your planned work requires a notice you might wish to seek advice from a qualified building professional."

Suggestions please!
