I would try the black grass Ophiopogon, low growing, good contrast with pebbles.

Pam good to hear that all is well, after that cold spell I had my fingers crossed for you.

Geoff of course they scream, but mainly with delight at the thought of being smothered in butter.

It was an exciting night here, England won again with a clean sheet, if they can keep a clean sheet all the way through the Euros we could win Leanne and Tom Jones won The Voice and Lord Sugar presented a clip show, no wonder he can sell snow to Eskimos.

It has rained heavily overnight and is still raining, no gardening today

give and you will receive

A couple of suggestions:

A couple of years ago my sister gave me seeds in packets made from wallpaper, they are so nice I am still using them to store saved seeds.

Have you looked at freecycle for the containers to store the seeds, I often see people offering these type of things.

Have you considered offering your time to F&F who are local, a morning in their garden tidying a border would be greatly appreciated and may inspire them.

Geoff when you are a veggie you can worry about the bugs, I would be more worried about rampant cows.

No 10 looks like it has been decorated by some kids.

Pam are you on schedule?

Berghill I have managed to hack into your photos by copying the link into my browser, I do not know why the link is not working direct.

I know that what I say will not matter but I do like the fact that they ask. I would quite like a wheelie bin as the foxes are making such a mess of the bags.

I am not squeamish, I enjoy the squidging, especially aphids

Have you ever grown sweet sultans, they are an inch tall and trying to flower???

I think there may be a dingy following behind.

They want to know, if I want a weekly green collection? Do I want a wheelie bin, if not why not? Do I want to mix paper/glass/tins and plastics?
