Thank you FloBear, I shall not clean my little pond ever again and maybe I'll be lucky!

You lucky thing Budlia63, I've had a pond for years (with fish) and have froglets every year(spend my life rescuing them from cats!) but never had newts.

This must have been a good year as the pond edging has run out of space(occupied with frogs and juniors) As the garden is still overrun with slugs and snails, I wonder what the frogs eat!

Hey Freshairfanatic.......stop wishing and put a large bowl in your garden and place a bog plant in it......before long you will find that frogs have turned into their "des res" They did that in my garden. Good luck.

Talking about hydrangeas do the same? I pruned two of them two years ago and did not expect them to flower last year, but they have not done so this year either. They are looking very robust and healthy too.I just hope it is just an extra looooong sulk and buckup next year! Anyone have a similar problem?

Any in Surrey please 4711, did not have much luck on the internet search. I think the prices charged by retailers are daylight robbery. Thanks.

Hi George, pick them while in bud and hang them in an airy, dry shed or garage. Enjoy.

Soil or Compost??

Posted: 06/09/2012 at 08:12

Hi Mrs M, I have been growing veggies in large containers for a few years now in homemade compost boosted up with fertiliser and done well(expect this year.) They include corgettes, spinach,cabbage, rubarb, beans,tomatoes, chilli, early potatoes,gooseberries etc. I make sure that they are well watered. With bought compost varying in quality and being pricey I didn't thing it would be worthwhile. So do have a go, it will work out slightly cheaper, you'll crop fresh produce and really taste the difference.

Talkback: How to deadhead lilies

Posted: 03/09/2012 at 09:04

Hi, lillies are very forgiving and will shoot up in spring despite neglect(thank the Lord!)

I grow them in large pots on the patio purely to control the slugs and snails and also so I can enjoy them from the house in bad weather. I just wish I could control the dreaded lily beetle! I generally leave the stalks and leaves till they die down as I hope the bulbs will benefit. I give them a slow release feed in the spring and have never been disappointed. So chill, you'll have real beauties next year. They do not need any protection in winter(I am in the SE) although, occasionally I do top up the pots with spent compost.
