you see.. i think that is what makes a cottage garden.. or gravel with flat slabs in it.. i am at this point in my garden.. the paths.. what to have do not want something bright and bold..but soft and subtle.. i think Annie Glyn..that you have to sit and think what it is you do want.. what works for the space and how it is used.. i have been thinking of mine now for 3 months and have narrowed it down to two.. gravel with slabs stepping stones in or cobble looks stones.. still cant decide.

i potted up som of my year old neapolitian cyclamen today.. ready for next year.. not sure how long before they flower..was told 2 years.. and i am going to ask if anyone knows if i can chelsea chop my nepetina (cat nip) plants or not as they are big and blousely and getting beaten by the wind.. i am going to do my sedums but nothing else is big enough for it.

i was told that it is only the brown slugs that eat your plants.. not the black ones..or is it other way round do these nematodes kill them all
