I find it's all too easy to be kept so busy weeding, watering etc that I sometimes forget to just sit in the garden and enjoy looking at it!

I have the same problem Bob! You're dead right though- we need to sit down and enjoy our gardens too.

Looked at the link Bob. Didn't realise they were members of the lily family- hence the 'bulbil' type cloves-  rather than onion. Despite being an allium  

Very interesting - if confusing!

Bob - you learn something new every day! Fascinating. Never realised that's how they grew.

Woody - I've just looked at the pix and I'm lost for words. I can't believe how immaculate your garden is and how much work you must have put in. In fact all the houses and gardens look absolutely stunning. You should all be really proud of yourselves. What a lovely village you live in. Was the test match any great shakes? Not heard or seen the news tonight.

I love that slate/stone circular sculpture in garden 10, Windhover Cottage.

art it's a hard one. I'd be furious if it happened to me but as I witnessed - these guys can make life very unpleasant for you. They can 'accidentally' destroy stuff and feign ignorance. Can you approach him and say something like 'I don't know if you realised your sprayer was so close to my garden but it was and it's killed some of my plants' etc.? Ultimately you have to go on living there and it could make your life a misery if you go about it the wrong way. Is there anyone else you could go to for advice?

Not grown them either Verd but I'd have thought they would just be like onions? Are they grown differently from other members of onion family?
