Ooh fab. Celery is quite tricky in my experience, but it's good to have a challenge!

Lovely to see your avatars, Richard and Marion! Hopefully lots of others will follow suit soon.

happymarion - I look forward to discovering the length of your longest slow worm!

Richard - please keep us posted on the king snake.

Ladybirds are still on the wing in my London garden. I've not taken down the runner beans, as they are covered in blackfly - food for the ladybirds and garden birds. Do you have ladybirds on the wing in your garden? Or have they moved into your house for winter hibernation?

Favourite tools

I'm giving my shed a good clear out, keeping only the bare minimum of tools - one border spade and fork, trowel, hand fork, rake and secateurs. There are so many other tools which I find unnecessary in my tiny garden. Which tools could you not live without, and why?

Redesign of garden

My garden is tiny, just four-metres squared. I've got a very small lawn area (at my partner's insistence). I'm hoping to make the lawn smaller, and circular, to make the garden look bigger, and plant shrubs and herbaceous perennials around it. Has anyone else done this? Would you recommend it?

Seed buying

Posted: 29/11/2011 at 13:43

Seed catalogues are piling up in the office and at home, and I'm itching to get shopping. Will you be growing any new types of fruit or veg this year, or sticking with tried and tested varieties?

Plants still in flower?

Posted: 29/11/2011 at 13:36

The weather has been so mixed this year, my plants are so confused! My spring-flowering cherry has produced new flowers and leaves, my foxgloves are still blooming, my cranesbill geraniums have had a sudden, second flush of flowers, and now my daffodils are showing signs of flowering.

Which plants are flowering out of season in your garden? Are you worried?

Talkback: Leaf-cutter bees

Saw my first leaf-cutter only a couple of weeks ago Richard. Didn't get a chance to look at its underside... Kate
