Wasps are great predators antony so they're probably just eating whatever's there. Crane flies lay their eggs in the grass but it doesn't sound as if that's what you're seeing if they seem to be small. Don't have any experience of gnats but perhaps that's the answer. Someone else will probably know.

Yes Jinty. Just make sure the cuttings don't touch each other. Depending on what the cuttings are from you'll get around 3 to 4 in a 6" pot.

pg- how about attaching the ladder to the wall/fence like a shelf- you could screw one side directly onto it and then attach brackets underneath onto the wall.  The spaces between the rungs would then be 'holders'  for a row of matching pots.  If you used hanging basket brackets you could hang something from those as well for a tiered effect.

Margaret- plants have a way of smacking us in the face just when we think we've got them sussed don't they! We can do everything 'as recommended' and it  sometimes doesn't work  yet we can do the opposite and it all turns out fine! The weather this year has definitely had an impact. As you say- here's looking forward to next year

We had same problem at last house chick but we had a huge pot about 3' high which previous owners left and I grew some in that when we were selling. It was too high for them to jump up into!

Dove - I can never make up my mind whether to procrastinate or not....

Tina - I suppose text speak is the new shorthand!

Yes pg - he's back on Tuesday night 

Good times!

Tina- it's why the spam's so annoying - yesterday's was infuriating as there was tons of it but all on the gadren design topic so it pushed up lots of old threads. Think everyone seemed to get it round it well enough though.

Maud- it could be a lot worse!!!!

Dove- if you're on here later- I saw your query on the sweet pea thread about Cupanis and I've posted a pic of the cream sweetpeas (Cathy) on the Garden Gallery thread if you want to see them.

Took some pix of sweet pea Cathy this morning growing up a wigwam of canes in a pot. Lovely scent.

 These ones are growing up the handrail beside my back door along with a clematis. All quite happy together in the same pot!

Verd - enjoy playing with your new toy....boys eh?   You'll just have to whistle...

KEF- I may consider that! Someone once told me they bought a house and what they liked about the garden was that there was a good, sturdy new fence round it because they had a new dog. When they moved in....the previous owners had taken thefence!

chick- my youngest would want a choc chip muffin tree!

Cold here - 12 degrees - and a bit rainy which wasn't forecast, supposed to be nice today.  Glad I got grass done yesterday. Just put a washing on though
