Lily, I am so sorry to hear that. Sounds so very similar to my mum.

Thoughts and prayers with her today.

I wouldnt bother now with the lawn, do it March/April time, it wont do anymore now, let it rest for the winter.

You have some lovely plants in the sleeper bed, I love the ivy.

You may have to keep the road frontage to a metre high, have a look around and see what other people have got. Same with the plants, you will get a good idea of what grows well in your area.

You have near enough blank canvas there Dean, which is good.

The conifer will come out with a bit of work, they are quite shallow rooted, we took a row out in the winter, it will be messy but you can clear that up.

We used an iron bar and a mattock, just keep digging the soil from around then hack, then use the bar. You can cut the roots with a big set of secateurs.

Hornbeam hedge will be good down the fence side but if its open plan there may be a height restriction on the road frontage.

Ask any questions you want, someone will know, there are a lot of very experienced gardeners on here.

Growing lettuce in winter

Last November I bought a box of living salad from Lidl, 99p, I got 13 plants. I planted them in the greenhouse, they grew and grew right through the winter and I ended up pulling them out to plant the tomatoes in June. Just pick the outside leaves and they just keep growing.

I will never bother to sow seeds again.

Photo's dont work on actual iphones but others do. Mine is a lg works fine. Also I use android tablet, thats very quick and easy for photo's

If you can see the tree icon on the toolbar at the top of the posting box you should be fine.

Good luck with hornbeam hedge, whatever you decide I wouldnt go for the Rugosa, I have it, its li

ke a weed, bits spring up all over the place. I am forever digging it out.

Rambling rose on a fence

I would agree with Salino, if you want one that grows really quick fast, I have Pauls Himalayan Musk. climber, and boy, does that grow fast! Train the stems along supports from as low as you can, then the same with the next two shoots, keep going like that and you will get flowers all over the fence and not just at the top.

A few questions

No where near that long to flower Perki!

Mum set a seed no more that 4 years ago, this year its had its first flower, but the plant has been growing very fast and is now 3.5 ft tall.  Worth growing, she keeps it in the dining room, never been outside.

£60.00 for one, blimey get the seeds, you can make yourself a fortune.

I have a huge snail, footprint as big as my hand, I expect those types would just occur naturally in your country...
