there has been  a increase in garden theft around here recently ,especially sheds with bikes,they seem to watch who has a good valuable bike and brake in.My neighbour had his bike broken into 3 times in a row,( yes he was silly to replace them so soon).but also we have thefts of pots(expensive ones) and even plants!I  never put anything of worth out the front because if it moves its gone!

best to plant them out when they are green (when they have finished flowering) they will multiply better.

Help please

you need pigs to root it up,the bracken that is,depending on how big an area we are talking about,and a friendly farmer to loan you a couple.,or its a dig it out effort,weedkiller no! Be Careful as bracken often hides ticks which if they attach to you will give limes disease.

Please fill this in!

a good way of getting plants is of course to pass some of your unwanted plants on to other gardeners in your area or to family and friends and they in return give you cuttings.The sun flowers seeds I pass onto my daughter who then gives them to the school and her friends,in return she gives me cuttings or plants.I also get cheap plants and often better plants at the side of the road sales.

There is a severe frost here ,which makes me thankful that I covered my vulnerable plants and put my pots away,looks pretty ,the frost that is.

May I introduce myself ?

well,thai who ever you are ,you stirred the pot here,I think which ever little plot of land you have ,its up to you what you create,whether it be with great passion for organic hippy type gardening or to plain ordinary stereo type ,whose right or wrong?help each with the knowledge you have,no one has to except what you say its not a religious revival and george hamilton ,monty don or percy thrower are of their time as we all are.god bless you.
