I have just ordered some fittings and hose from Amazon they have a very large hozelock selection with pictures and comments also reviews, find it very good worth a look.


I have the misfortune to be in upstairs flat so have to use kitchen sink filling buckets.etc.

I was looking at some plants and instruction said must be planted in acid soil being fairly new to gardening ( now retired) I really don't know can anyone guide me please.

Is there such a thing as a plant guide or dictionary to help to know what plants should be placed in the best areas of the garden or pots.

When I have washing hanging on line I find that deters the larger birds as they find it difficult to take off.
Sometimes I just leave one or two pieces out on my whirlygig this keeps them away mostly.
