I must go down to the shed again,

the lonely dark and damp shed,

I left my fork and shovel there,

I left them there with out care

and my hubby will go spare!

I would like to catch the litter lout who drops is can of coke and fag packet out side my house every day because I would follow him home and dump the lot in his home and make him read the warning on the packet.

I'm the kiss of death to herbs it seems......

you have to have the right soil for Herbs,think about where they come from,hot dusty country to a wet cold soggy climate,no wonder they despair! I have very bad soil for herbs,so best to grow in pots with a good compost and drainage,because if you have clay soil they wont like it and if the weather is cold if they are in pots you can bring them in.

Bamboo is very hard to get rid of and if you put a membrane down it will grow through it ,I know it came through the pond liner.you will need to really take the task of digging it right out ,its a pain not easy to eradicate.conifers will turn the soil sour and you will not be able to grow anything near them .
