@sotongeoff.. many thanks for the info.. i will know how to amend if i suddenly see it did it wrong.

i agree with you maud.. i love reading it too and everyone is welcome.. whether beginner or fully experienced poster.. it is good to hear others views and see others gardens (thats my fav bit)  i have learnt lost os little things since being on here and it is great to share what little i have with others..

like for instance i am doing this new diet for my rhuematiod arthritis.. cyder vinegar and honey wiht cup hot water 3 times a day and it is working i can move fingers much easier than i ever have in the last few years.. no red meat except lamb (yum) and loss of fish and no dairy.. it is working and i have lost 1/2 stone since  starting last week.

I have been using laurels for my hedging.. they grow quite fast and can be trimmed to any size you want.. i saw it at Osbourne House they had it as a floating hedge. will try and find the photo.. it look amasing.. all the main big branches were on show.. and also they had it against a wall in the same manner.

today it has been heavy showers and rain.. many rainbows this morning which is delightful am going out to move plants that have been waiting for weeks as the ground was so hard wihtout rain since 4th august. (well anything that was worth calling rain that is). and pricking out seedlings of primulas and perennials.

Water butts are now full and ready for watering them all.

Best wishes goes out to all of those who are suffereing these terrible floods.. i thank god that we are on top of a cliff and dont suffer them.. but down in Lake (ha ha) it does flood and becomes like its name.

My Daughter keeps harpin gon about "just like the start of "2012" film mum.. its not going to get better.. it is getting closer.. much as i love her dearly sometimes i could just slap her for her silly nonsense talk.
