How lovely Bill. Nice to see you here again 

I love those lily flowering tulips, such a lovely shape.

Berberis lynn. The plummy varieties are deciduous but can get to a decent shape and size as a specimen type plant. Many of the green leaved ones are evergreen but are better as back of border shrubs or hedging.

I know the problem only too well 

You're lucky you got apologies. I just get abuse.

PS if there's damage it's a criminal offence. Get some hard evidence and call the police.

Can anyone identify this weed please - it's taking over!!!

Hi Mjolnir. It's willow herb and produces thousands of seeds after flowering. Pull it out before it takes over your entire garden!

Have a good day lily. 

Not had a curry for ages. Friend had already had her dinner when she came over so I didn't really have anything much last night. 

Don't think the slugs went to school Verd - that's the problem

Totally agree nut.  I think we're all aware of the thoroughly unpleasant cowards who trawl the web .

Sadly, this is the bad side of the internet. Mike has witnessed the good side  - I'd hate him to be a victim of the nasty bit.

Slugs.. sod the organic approach I just want them dead!

I wonder if it would deter more than just slugs Dove.....

Roots everywhere

I have the same problem here - roots from trees which were here before the houses as there's a lot of woodland nearby. The pavements have lots of raised areas too. It's a case of digging and cutting unfortunately

She did Dove, but I'm quite  small so needed to stand on a box to reach them....

We have giant snails here so I've been doing a lot of snail throwing 

The slugs now get chopped 

It's why I also don't grow too many plants which have soft sappy growth at this time of year. it's like Raymond Blanc's restaurant for them. Lilies are in pots with sharp grit. Much easier to keep an eye on them. Encouraging birds in helps but I do miss having a pond so that the frogs can have their fill. That will comelater I hope.
