Behave David K, but I still love you for redeeming yourself.You have Imphosta to thank for that. Dove is not   afraid to state the truth and hates unfair remarks if intended.

This is what I love about this forum.We express what we feel but are ready to fall in line when reminded that we have crossed it. Lead on guys

Budget patio ideas?

Posted: 28/04/2014 at 20:05

One of my neighbours did something similar to what Artjak has described. he comes from the WI and with his son and a pick axe broke the patio up and leveled it. He then ordered delivery of premixed concrete which they spread out and finally leveled it with a plank.It was set in two days and looks pretty good. It did not cost him except for the concrete. He did not even do any dips or pattern on it. By the way, he said that with the measurements he gave them, the concrete guys worked out the amount he needed.

If you fancy "slabs" the cheapest are concrete slabs that councils use on walkways in shopping centres.They last and do not grow algae.

Baywood, I can really sympathize with you as I have the same problem and the police did not help at all.

I was reluctant to react but snapped when it got worse. I knocked on their door and calmly said that I had witnesses and proof about their behaviour and have alerted the police too. They  denied it all and told me that "I was hallucinating as I was a lonely old hag and made racist remarks.....".I replied by saying that they were weak bullies  and that if they carried on I will "go further...." and then, despite their ranting, walked away. I must say, I was terrified but at my wits end.  But, it seems to have worked and they have left me alone for a few months.

Unfortunately, despite what people say about "the law etc." it is best to avoid a confrontation as people like them never change. So maybe you could cut the plant down and try saving it by watering it copiously  and see if it will shoot up again. If it does, keep it in control and do not give them a chance to aggravate the situation. Failing that, leave the area bare and see if it helps. Good luck.


what is this flower?

Isn't it strange Nut, I'm glad you mentioned it, but my magenta ones do well in my garden and seed everywhere!! But I do not have any luck with the white ones, which is a shame as I would love to grow them together in a pretty pot  and use it as a special marker in the garden.

Should my toad lily be showing signs of life?

Posted: 26/04/2014 at 09:56

Toad lilies are easy to grow as long as they get good light. Mine are shooting up now. They need protection from slugs as they love them. The plants are are late summer bloomers and will last till the first frosts.
