It's a shame things aren't working, Cltl and F5 makes no difference, neither does clearing one's history...........think I'm going to leave it for now and come back in a few days to see if things have improved...........I might be talking to myself, thats ok, I'm the one person that makes sense to me

Still got problems with Forum

I have a tiny pond more like a ditch........... it been here for a couple of years and I don't know how they do it but toads arrived quickly.

Don't know if they came in with some smelly compost or they found their way in? The cats have brought some in (alive) so have just popped them in there. I don't see the toads very often but every few months I catch a glimpse.  Saw one in the flower beds a few months ago I go along with the theory that adding some water is the best way to increase the diversity of wildlife.

My ditch is in the worst probably place, under 2 beech trees, I do try and get some netting over it in the Autumn, other than that I leave it alone........it's probably got a bit of leak so in the summer months I do top it up a bit

I have made sure that there are steps to the water entrance so that any creature can find a way out

Perennials planting time

Posted: 25/09/2013 at 20:23

Hi, if your plants are of a good size I think now is a great time to plant out. The soil is warm and the weather is still mild, great for putting on roots in the ground for next year

Hello Gardengirl, I have loads of the false sunflowers, it will have to be the roots again as it's been cut back now. One thing I did this year was to cut a top off the plant, stuck in some compost and it grew !

This year again it attracted loads of insects and butterflies. I'm no expert but I think it might do better in the ground than in a pot. It seems to be a spreader, I dug out loads of it last year, but you wouldn't know that now!

The white campion has flowered this year  so am leaving it to self seed hopefully, and the honesty plants are coming on great, looking forward to seeing them flower next year. Been a bit amiss with the white mallow, just planted them out.........but if they have survived this far they will be fine.
