Maybe you should try to have a friendly chat with your neighbour,he may not be aware of how much a problem this is to you.

You can find out who owns a party fence by checking the deeds to your property.

I can,t imagine its anything to do with the leeches,we have had fish for 30 years and leeches are frequently seen along with the usual pond creatures and have never caused a problem.

As your fish are floating each morning,it could be something poisonous has found its way into the pond water,I would try emptying the pond by about two thirds and then refilling.It may be worth buying some pond treament  as well.

It could also be a fungal infection of the actual fish,do they have any unusual lesions on the scales?

Was,nt expecting you to have pink secateurs Verd, about purple? colour of the Roman Emperors?........after all Emperor Verdunius has a certain ring to it don,t you think

TT most of my hand tools are now bright pink,which has stopped me loosing so many pairs of secateurs etc,it does help you spot them in the garden.

Morning everybody,

Chicky.your new bog garden sounds an exciting project,just a few suggestions for you astibe.rheum and lingularia,if you want height lingularia rocket grows to about 1.8m.Look forward to seeing the photos.

Its absolutely tipping down here,but we were lucky yesterday,with no rain until the evening,which was a bonus as we managed to clean the patio,unfortunately today we both look like walking "S" bends,(I use the term walking loosely,more like a shuffle)

Have to do some housework today,before stepdaughter and her new partner arrive Thursday,I suggested we meet up in the local garden centre cafe.........any ulterior motive in that I wonder?

Another plant identifier please....

Children are "children " for such a short period of time,the trend nowadays seems to be to let them grow up too quickly,not just in behaviour,but also in the way some of them are dressed.
