Non-cultivar flowering plants

Even with the few plants I have here just now the bees are buzzing

Barry- buddleias  will grow anywhere and butterflies and bees love them.

Me too and it's nice so I'll get out later and get posts started for fence - I hope.

I had to do similar when I put a hedge in Dove. It was between trees so the roots were a nightmare. Hedge was great after a couple of years

'Sticks like sh.t' has stuck a lump of cement back on to some steps here and is still there a year later

I'm not so polite nut- I call it 'grips like ****' 

I've just fixed one of mine with sealant and so far so good.

Morning Dove  Glad the hoggies  have been ok while you were away. Have you got places for all your new purchases? 

Morning everyone else too. The spam is now ridiculous. Hope they do something about it and quickly.

Welcome all newbies 

GG-award yourself a prize of your choice..

Just watched the prog about the Hebrides...if any of you can get a chance to see it (i player?) as it's on BBC Scotland- I'd urge you to try. Narrated by Ewan McGregor and featuring the most stunning camera work I've seen in a long time it shows our bleak, beautiful,challenging and undeniably stunning country at it's magnificent best. Quite breathtaking.

Off to bed now...night all!

Glad you're feeling better Matty. A little relaxation will have done you good 

If you were an amphibian, would you want to live here?

When we moved in to last house the previous owner said to us 'never seen any frogs but there's always all this frogspawn'...he obviously never went in the garden cos the place was full of frogs and toads!

Judging by the state of it-no, he never went in the garden

It'll be good for my bingo wings TT...

Have you tried putting a bit of water cress in your pond for the blanket weed? It helps clear it.

Dave I think daintiness is right -you could be wasting your money here. Have you ever used one of those services where you advertise for a job to be done (online) and local firms bid to do it? I tried it when I was moving and needed rid of a settee and it was amazing how inexpensive it was. Perhaps you could advertise for a couple of lads to break up the concrete and get rid of it. Might be worth trying? The one I used was 'man with a van' or something similar but if you google it something may turn up.
