I have wild garlic and am happy to send you plants. Do PM me. I enjoy having it in my garden, and, it makes lovely pesto, milder than the real garlic. I make it in the spring and freeze it. It is delicious in stir frys and the young leaves are lovely in salads. The white flowers are a welcome sight in early spring too. Don't worry, it will not destroy your hedge plants and is shallow rooted so you do not need a Fiskars tool to remove it.

To each his own eh? One persons "weed" is anothers' joy

trying to identify this shrub, have tried with two pictures, hope it helps

Buying seeds online/eBay

Posted: 11/04/2014 at 21:17

This year I decided to try Amazon for seeds and plants  on a neighbours  advise and was pleasantly surprised. They were miles cheaper and the seeds have all come up.I certainly will order again from them.

Thompson & Morgan - issues!

Well done T&M, you have done it again......but I don't blame you at all. We gardeners are very trusting simple folk ,so you treat us like fools. What is the point of your e-mail address when you do not respond, or, we get a stand reply which means nothing. Even when we ring we get sarcastic responses like, ...."oh really.....". But fear not,once bitten twice shy, we will soon vote with our feet and go elsewhere. This forum will help us do so. Smaller suppliers like SUTTONS and FOTHERGILLS, and even AMAZON can fulfill their commitment, and their seeds actually do germinate. Try emulating them, or, are you making a lot of dosh out of  your BAD "customer care" as you call it on your e-mail address? 

What AMAZES  me is that GW still 'recommends' your site by offering 'free plants'  from your sites. You are onto a winner, aren't you? Surely you must be making money from our 'P&P' AND getting rid of your surplus plants. It's win, win all the way, isn't it?

Talkback: How to build a compost bin

Posted: 28/03/2014 at 08:43

Hi Yellow grass, I am using a waterbutt that started leaking due to frost damage(when we had temps. of -15 degrees!). I just cut the base away, and it works fine. As with solid "dalek" bins, the compost needs turning occasionally. But it doesn't matter that much, as, if you don't get round to turning the compost it takes a little longer to mature. I have not been doing it lately and have noticed the difference.

By the way, I use the cut off bottom of the waterbutt as a potting tray, which is just right when I am sitting on the lawn in the sun doing the potting up. You could do the same with your container. As long as there is good drainage any container would be OK . Enjoy

This thread was heading towards another bitter and uncomfortable read. We all know the difference between "expressing a personal opinion..." and attacking those that cannot retaliate, esp. Nigel.

It is so heartening to see that there are forum followers who are fair and grounded and have the courage of their conviction to make a stand and be counted.

As has been said, if people find it so objectionable then they should go elsewhere
