as I am sure you know laburnum seeds are very poisonous when eaten,small children are often tempted to eat them as they look like pea pods.they are very deadly.

My best buy of the year

My best buy was six cyclamen that were being sold off for a pound,they looked very poorly but once outside they recovered and now are still blooming.

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!
