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.
