watching the pouring rain,which is to heavy to go out in,put the kettle on I think.
you need some silt in the pond because dragon flies live in that and also various other things-.
sparrow hawk,beautiful birds .
oh dear,well do not water until really dry and then water well,they do not like central heating .In summer they like to be out side and not watered until bone dry.so if thats in the front room with central heating and no ventilation it wont thrive.
comfrey,very good for the garden and if your brave you can eat it!a crab apple tree,Hazel tree,medlery tree,elder,and quince.
as nutculet says, i grow mine in clay soil and divide regurlarly and they flower in spring.
oregan grape ,cant think of its name has spike like leaves and berries a bit like a grape ,jagged leaves and when cut has a yellow sap.I have one in the garden the birds love the fruit.wish i could remember the name.
plant in pot with good drainage, the most inportant thing is not to over water and be patient and not tempted to pull out the cutting to soon,it might look dead but wait a little and it will come to life and also not to hot enviroment.some people use plant hormone or as monty a vit c tablet but me I just stick a heel cutting into the pot.
I think half the fun is waiting to see what will come of the seed you collect,I collect seed and sometimes have poor results as well as the good.
koi,is it called,planted it but never got round to eating it.
