Yes 1Runnybeak1, I've got the Graceland album. I do like the title track he did with the Everly Brothers.

I buy one pack Gemma, and then they somehow make their way to the biscuit tin. My boys put the whole pack in and then they are the ones eating them

I would say to feel like you have made a start, repaint your fence panels, it can make a big difference. Also its a good idea to go and look at the reduced trolley in garden centres and other places like B&Q. You can get plants that although they have finished flowering, will be good for next year. I've done this for years and have had some very good bargains.

spreading all over - id if possbile please

Perhaps you've got lots of different varieties. They are tough to dig out.

Bargain Buy of 2015

What has been your best buy? Mine was a flaming katy for £1.00 and a slipper orchid £9.99. Never seen one 'in the flesh' before so hope I can keep it going.

Shrub ID

This has been growing in our hawthorn hedge and this year decided to be 12ft tall with read berries. I thought it migh be a pyracantha but not sure which one as there are no thorns.

Mystery plant at the bottom of my garden. I've never seen this before and it isn't something I planted.
