Good Evening FORKERS

Sign of the times fidget. They got caught and they're going on the attack in the hope you'll back off. Ridiculous. Don't be intimidated by scuzzy bullies like that and get your  insurance company - and lawyer if necessary- to deal with it. They've no right to threaten you. In fact- inform the ins co tomorrow that she did that. Stick to your guns

As and when with the soap sprays Ging.  You can jet them off just with water but not advisable when it's delicate seedlings! Fine with more robust shrubs and perennials etc. Apparently it makes the little b*****s explode....

Yes Sara- it's a pity so many people nowadays just don't understand that simple fact. No manners, no respect- for anyone or anyone's property. Depressing.

 I thought it was a phormium too KEF. I've had several types over the years and the bog standard green one flowered regularly and quite spectacularly

Fidget sorry to hear about your bump. Hope you're ok - gives you a fright too doesn't it? Get a good night's rest if you can- your neck might be sore in the morning too.

KEF- some spinach with the weetabix...

Bev- hope all going well. No wonder you're tired though!

The cold wind can cause real problems. I'm in central Scotland Sarah and get the westerly winds which can just annihilate lots of stuff. Your other one looks terrific.No reason why you can't give it a bit of time when it has sentimental value  so fingers crossed that you can salvage it but it looks beyond help to me. Is it in a different location to the  healthy one?

Verd- you are in soooo much trouble now with us laydeees...

Get back on your lily pad......

Lovely garden Keen! You obviously spend a lot of time getting it to look so smart 

I see my name's been taken in vain by that naughty Verd. Never mind turning him into a toad, Dove - when I get this wand sorted - he's toast!!!!

Tina so sorry about the fish. Ours all got stolen from last house when we were selling it and one was obviously dropped and got partially eaten. We were quite upset as we'd grown really fond of them. Interestingly, when we bought 3 new ones they put them in big plastic bags for us to take home and there was very little water in the bags. We were a bit concerned about the lack of water but they told us it was air that was more important. You live and learn.

Been following your advice Alan and got some of the ready to use spray although I wasn't sure if it would be as effective as the neat stuff. Just need something to keep semi feral dogs and children out....fence is nearly complete though.
