The crunch snails make when you accidently stand on them trying to walk up the garden path on a rainy night.

What plant other than Ivy to cover up unsightly lower-middle class concrete bird bath with vulgar inscription on it?

Not for me I'm afraid. My garden is influenced His Royal Highness Prince Charles at Highgrove. When I open the garden as part of Open Gardens weekend  I shall be covering the earth with potpourri that has been specially selected by the Royal Horse Society under the direction of Prince Charles himself:

 Maybe you've heard Of it but to be honest I havent seen it for sale just in shops...


See original post

 I'll be honest and admit I had no idea Highgrove was a communal garden 😮 that said I have to wonder how wolfs landlord and neighbours feel about random strangers wandering about outside their homes.

I'd suggest concentrating on your own garden before sorting non existant  problems in other peoples gardens and wild areas.


ETA Failing that, get a higher fence.

you should never dig up wild plants for your garden, for a start its illegal.


See original post

 These ones are legal as there was rubbish and shopping trolleys around so they werent happy there.


Is it potentially damaging to my other flowers, then. Because I can plant them back if necessary.


See original post

 Legal according to whom? And how do you know they weren't happy ?


It makes no difference that the plants were growing amongst rubbish, you can't just take wild plants home with you. 

Identify this please
