It's a bit rubbish we can't upload pics from our phones I take lots of photos with mine and it would be so much easier.

Does anyone know if it's something the forum is looking at?

No such thing as a bargain!

Hmm glad I'm not the only person who fell for the T & M offers, I ordered the 48 perennials for the ??5.95 postage back in March, told my friend we had some little plugs coming to share and waited, and waited, and waited. Slightly impatient at the end of April I emailed them and got no reply until my third email then miraculously the day before GW live I had an email.

They finally arrived yesterday I've never seen plugs so small and I'll be lucky to get 3 good plants.

GC throw always for me from now on definitely.

Where are YOU?

This threads great ) how lovely to see what we all do is so diverse. I'm an office manager in transport and do a bit of voluntary garden maintenance for some lovely older, less capable ladies.

Duncan Blackwell I feel your pain (and bubbling annoyance).  It was nice for me to sit and read your thread and know we aren't alone as we have had similar and worse problems with our neighbours since they cut down our boundary hedge one day whilst we were at work.

We live in a mid terrace and both sides have had a vendetta against us since the day we moved in almost 5 years ago, the sad thing is we only bought the house for the garden but over time they have vandalised our property and threatened the OH on our own doorstep!

You are so right, the powers that be do nothing and the situation escalates if you get them involved.

Good luck with your project, I hope it gives you peace in your garden and gives them something to think about. Let us know how it goes, I for one will be watching with interest.

Hi All

I have recently, after following a link posted here, decided to have a go at making my garden a little more tropical.  I have been trying to re-design our garden over the past few years but don't have a blank canvass and already have some very large native trees which as well as provide us with privacy from houses at the back are a haven for birds and wildlife. (one is a native hawthorne, a bedraggled pine and a large beech tree that have all been here in the garden for over 50 years).

I have been doing some research and fell in love a few years ago with the Gunnera Manicata and as we already have a pond I'm thinking well,,, can I?

Our garden is a mid terrace, 7.5m wide and 35m long and I just wanted to know if any of you have experience of this impressive monster and if so, would it just be too big and imposing for my space or would it give us the privacy in growth from overlooking bedroom windows?

Thank you in advance
