James- you're more than half way there already! 

Good luck with it and take care of yourself. We'll be pleased to see the progress.

I will hold my hands up and apologise  - I confess I didn't look at the link. Schoolboy error. I assumed it was a killing machine!! 

Is it basically a more powerful way than using a hose with an attachment? 

I do agree that no matter how wildlife friendly and 'natural' our gardens might be or we'd like them to be, all gardens are man made so we call the shots. I rarely use weedkiller but when I do I use it appropriately. Organic as much as I possibly can be, and try to do what I can for all types of wildlife.

We have a very good programme up here in Scotland called Landward which is  a similar format to Countryfile but far better I think, although it never has a very long run which is a pity.  Pentillie - I know what you mean about these programmes seeming a bit juvenile at times. I stopped watching Countryfile as the only bit I was really enjoying was Adam's farm. He always seemed sensible, informative and interesting. Perhaps the idea is to try and appeal to youngsters and get them more interested in the countryside and that's a good motive if it's the case.

I'm picturing punkdoc on Friday nights now....saying to Monty - 'I love're my  best friend....' hic...

I'm very fond of Monty  too - and Nigel...and I 'm not even a doggy person. As I said before - it's a nice gentle programme so if you want noise and shouting you can always watch Eastenders/ Big Brother/Jeremy Kyle... please insert loud programme of your choice! 

Could I propagate a Rosemary?

I cut some rosemary about 6 weeks ago to use for cooking and didn't use it all so stuck the bit that was left back in the little pot of water it had been in and forgot all about it till I put some sweet peas in the pot recently -  it  had loads of roots and I potted it up yesterday!

Verd- at the risk of disagreeing with you and getting detention ()  I don't really like membrane either for the reasons you state, but Tattiana has limited time to spend looking after the plot for her daughter which is why I think it's useful for her in the circumstances.

If you shout at me I'll have to turn you into a frog again.....
