Video has captured the moment a group of paddle-boarders were warned to get out of the ocean in California after 15 great white sharks were spotted circling nearby.


Nature and Darwin had a plan!

It's amazing what sea rescue can do.

Shame it takes so long to get involved, I will get there.

Depending on where you live you should be able to get council green waste compost delivered for a reasonable price. We got a 5.5 tonne lorry load for about £135 last year (mostly delivery cost). You can use that as a thick weed-suppressing mulch on top of the clay (no need to dig it in).

Another thing is to grow more vigorous plants which will compete well with weeds (not roses). E.g. look at the book 'Dream Plants for the Natural Garden'. Cough grass for instance is very persistent but it's not very competitive - suitably vigorous plants will swamp it out. E.g. Persicaria polymorpha, Persicaria amplexicaulis, Cardoon, Perennial sunflowers, Red hot poker, Echinops, Perennial Cornflower, Tall Asters etc.

 Please  tell me again what a weed is?

I thought it was just a plant that you do not like in your garden?

The RHS introduced Japanese knotweed (Fallopia japonica) and described it as the best plant of the year! they also described,  Himalayan balsam and gave it an award!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dog help us!

What ever next? Cray fish, from the US?
