I have real trouble with ground elder as my neighbour never clears it from his garden, thinks it's ground cover and although I have dug it out for many years but have been very unwell and unable to do it of late, NOW rampant, I am at my whits end.

I saw the lovely white anenome at a local garden centre but it was growing in the ground as they have extensive gardens, I asked where I could find said plant to buy, ofcourse they couldn't help so I suggested that they dug a tiny piece up for me to purchase but to no avail, I have still only got anenome blanda.

What a lot of people don't know about Lily beatles is when you try to pick them off the plant they very cleverly drop onto their backs so that the red is hidden in the earth but there is a plan, a sheet of white paper placed below the plant so that if they think they've got away, they haven't they are shown up by the white background, don't you just love out smarting the little blighters.

Dear Richard Jones, wouldn't we all love the safety of this dear little creature our own native squirrel but nothing is being done about the grey perril wich causes so much damage to everything from trees to bulbs and bird feeders, they ensconce themselves in our roofs and not to mention that they are the reason for the demise of our squirrel nutkin.

Dear Kate, I love your water story, I have a half barrel water garden, I have a small Waterlily in it and an Iris but seems as though I should fill some more pots, Oh! and the birds like drinking from it along with other creatures. hope you are enjoying your garden after your travels.
