Gardeningfanatic I have tried to send you a message but the system doesn't seem to be working properly. Can I please have some more scabious off you,as I love this well as some vipers bugloss,astrantia and some monarda please.

Have you got anymore bearded irises left too?

I have got some verbena bonariensis,mixed cornflower,sea holly and echinops if you fancy?


hi ya.. i have possible 3 rhizomes left.. waiting on someone to decide or not.. if not you can have them.. i do not have monarda seeds and the astrantia are now all allocated..

i would love some more of your orlaya grandiflora,  i loved this and 3 out of the 5 you sent before are now flowering in the garden.  and some verbascum otherwise surprise me with anything that likes very sandy free draining soil.

i listen to the bees and the birds and the sounds of the garden..

i must also add.. we have no drains on our lane.. it floods continuously and only one very old poor light.. yet southern water are still chargin us for removal of road surface water.. which in our deeds says they can not charge us for.. when asked they stated they can charge as they take it away in our road drain and clean it out.. we have no road drains hence why they cant charge us.. it is literaly a bit of land left between the houses and railway line for access when built.. as the  front council path is footpath only..

at the mo the legal team are winning as our deeds clearly state use of the lane.. but the council are throwin in the public have used it for so many years now they can claim right of way!!.. our legal time are stating that the public never used it until the council took the private road signs down.. so the council are having to back down now and we are in the middle of getting it reinstated as private and stoppin access to the public.. which would be good as they shout at us and all sorts when we drive up.. specially dog walkers who cant be arsed to have their dogs on leads.. and say we shouldnt be driving up there at all. and our local concillor as stated in teh local paper that we should he thankful the council allow us access across it to our home.. lol we all did at that one.

so good luck

we live up a lane which is privately owned by the house owners as it states on our deeds.. and we are all responsible for the bit the lenght of our property boundaries.. but also on our deeds is the fact the council have  excess to their proptery at the far end.. which they have since sold and kept their right of way for the council park vehicles.. we are fine with this..

but three years ago they took down the private road signs and stuck up cycle track ones instead.. so now we have cyclists and dog walkers and everyone using our lane.. and not the council footpath at the front..we have had legal a battle with them over this for 3 years now.. they have claimed they have adopted it.. but when we asked for proper road surface instead of the farm lane we ave now which has huge pot holes in.. or for some street lights as it is pitch black on the council path on cliff side and pitch black up the lane at night.. and not safe walking with the holes..  they say it is a private road..

But the worryin thing for us is what if a cyclist is hit when someone is coming out their drive.. we were told we were.... but when we argued that the land is classed as private land and they shouldnt be using it and we could do them for trespass... the council said.. no we have adopted it and public can use it.. we are going round in circles with them.. with no end in site.

so OP check your deeds and titles and ask yr neighbours to do the same and i suggest as we did... have a neighourhood meeting and you can all discuss it.. and take the actions that are required or needed to sort it out.

cardoon.. that is exactly how the paths in our garden our.. only ours is cheap crazy paving done in concrete and marked out... we are in process of breaking it all up with sledge hammer and using it as base for new paths..

we are concreteing over the rubble and then layin slabs and gravel.. but as the paths have sunk over the years as only laid on soil.. in places the concrete is 10ins deep to bring it up to level with the lawn and beds..

it has taken time to decide on a path and now taking alot of time to break up and re do.. but will be worth it in the end..
