Good thinking Ggirl. Hope he's ok.

Off to bed now. Night all

Am I living in a parallel universe???

I think Antony just wanted some advice about maintaining his grass so that it's suitable for his young kids to play on. I doubt if he's planning on creating Versailles or Vaux le Vicomte just yet.

Scottcake I had some in pots last winter as I was between houses. They grew really well and needed very little attention. Split them and repotted them once I'd moved end of February then  planted them out in the spring. Mine were all tiny little seedlings collected from some steps at work just over a year ago. All good big plants now

Sorry Verd- agreeing with wb again!!!  

Irish weather very much like Scotland's - we don't get a lot of droughts either!

Gosh that's a lot Verdi. Do you get any probs with them or do they always all take?

Lovely Georgie. It's obvious you've been working very hard to get it looking so good

Too much yummy food for me - rosy cakes and lovely pie with custard. Mmmmm.

Will be making cake later this week for youngest Fairy daughter's birthday so I'd better be good for the next few days! 

I've been trying to deadhead the sweet peas every day if possible pg - they catch up so quickly don't they!

fidget is autumn pie berries of different types? Sounds lovely. Plenty of custard for me please

I managed to avert my eyes from all the reduced raspberries etc in B&Q earlier. Nowhere for them to go yet. Lots of blackberries - brambles we call them - around here in the autumn. Yummy.

Well it's only grass and  I think Antony just wants somewhere for his children to play - he's not looking to take up crocquet or bowls. Easy to get a bit precious about it all. Keeping it tidy is all that's needed for the time being I should think - enough to do when you have 3 small children!

Think I'd agree with waterbutts blackest.They can cope with pollution and all sorts of things but they like good drainage.
