Hi, Can anyone help me out, I was busy hoeing away in the garden today and I noticed a little electric blue fly the size of a greenfly, it was all around the beech hedge. It would be interesting to know what it was.

No I never saw Carol's program on "Life in a Cottage Garden", when was that on? I would have liked to have seen it.

I did notice him putting the bulbs into a nursery bed for cut flowers for the house, but I'm afraid I don't have the room, so it look's like I will just have to buy news bulbs!

Can anyone help, was watching Gardners World on Friday past and Monty was talking about Tulips, which I love, how to care for them, but what he said was you are probably better buying news bulbs every season and disregarding the old one's as they do not flower very well the next year, so what I found puzzling was that Carol Klien has pots and pots of Red tulips displaying at Glebe Cottage every year, now does she replace all them pots every year. It would interesting to know. As I started growing tulips in pots last year and had a lovely display but this year they were not great which I put down to the bad winter we had. So was wondering do I start all over again!

Hi can anyone help, I have a frog in our pond,which is alive but just floats under the water upright, I went to move it yesterday as it was on his back (I take it is a him, I am not sure as we had a lot of spawn but now a lot of tadpoles! in the pond so it could be the female! ) anyway it was not dead, I lifted it out but it moved back into the pond and is still there today in the same position. that has been about 5 days now, I would be grateful if anyone could help!

You say the Starlings are endangered, but I have to admit not in my area! They are unbelievable.
