my most treasured garden tool are my straight secateurs given to me by my father this year,they are so sharp and neat.

worst tool = I  wasted £1 at Poundland on one of the crappiest pair of secateurs known to man!!!!(they didnt cut and then had the cheek to fall apart!) should have known better for that price

Help, I planted 6 Hymenocallis bulbs in pots. Only one flowered although they have all grown. The leaves are being eaten by something and I cant see anything on them, dispite using a bug spray. Any suggestions folks?

Hi Alan. The is a shortage where I live in Cheltenham, the council are desperately trying to find land that locals can agree on (one near me didnt happen due to opposition from the residents near by) I am on the waiting list and it could be up to 5 years before I get one nearby.

I really struggled sowing Antirrinums, I grew them from seed and they have been in my

green house most of the summer. They were very small and weedy and seemed to take forever to get  going...any tips

I love GW now, Monty has made it so much  more "arty" and Carols so OTT. All important to us arty types who use their garden to express themselves, though I do propogate all my own stuff so find  Beechwoods great for practical tips, etc.  Love your garden always makes me weep (in a feelgood way).  Anyone know what this  new allotment programe is called?

I have a row of different types of Hosta all in pots under some dense Yew, so its very dark. They love it and are currently all in flower.
