Mussels? Are you sure you've not put salt water into your pond?

FR, does the pond overflow in heavy rain or do you close the taps off on the water butts?

any thoughts for long thin stretch next to driveway?

What direction does the area face, north/south etc?

That could be a lovely long border. Maybe a narrow paved path up against the hedge to help with cutting it and sweeping up the cuttings, and then turn the rest to soil, dig over and fill with plants, taller ones to the rear and smaller ones to the front.  The path will be hidden from view by the plants in front. Google image 'long borders' and you will see what I mean.

Something like this..

I used smallblueprinter to plan my new garden. It takes a little while to get the hang of, but If you download the free 14 day trail when you know you've got a few spare days ahead then you can do it for free, as I did..

You have a lovely garden, and a great backdrop. Why not leave a strip of lawn unmown, but add some wildflower plug pants. Or just dig out some boarders for wildflower planting, something like below..

Gardeners World 2014 BBC2

Posted: 07/03/2014 at 14:31

GW returns tonight @ 8:30pm BBC2.

For some reason I've just done a random search on google to see when it would be returning, only to discover its on tonight! I could so easily have missed it as I've not seen any reference to its return on TV.

Looking forward to it.
