Thank you red tulip Yes you are correct wood pigeons are the culprit

Also despite the wash used in December I also have black aphids on a few leaves.

I have two small cherry trees one either side of a summer house.  One tree has had the leaves stripped down to the middle vein.  The other at present seem ok.  Ive noticed that although the trunks have tar on them ants are moving freely up the tree are they the culprit??

thank you all

Last year my husband accidently dug into an ants nest they were up his arms and legs in no time.  He was poisoned by bites ... so do beware they can nip ...

Hello All

Anyone got any ideas for evergreen pond edging plants that would cover a black liner.

Its a refurb job on the pond and in the winter hate seeing the liner ...Weve used Stipa grasses in some areas and that seem to do fine.  The pond is at least  25 ft long and 12 ft wide so a fair size. 

Thank you All

Weeds in gravel garden

Posted: 24/05/2013 at 10:22

Weve tried membrane, no membrane. As gardening Grandma say lots of plants love gravel and self seed.  Poppies forget-me-nots even snowdrops seem to appear in our gravel areas.  Those I sit back and enjoy as for those pesky weeds its a round up job in full sun. 

Sorry no easy answer

Enjoy your gardening
