Not sure if I have any but will look next time I can take a stroll around, its so wet at the moment, but the good thing is that the new pond is now completely full with rain water!.

Personally I am not that keen on black flowers, I like the flashy ones!

I found the garlic spray worked but only for a short time, you need to apply every 3 or 4 days.

Hever castle and Batemans, in fact there are so many lovely houses and gardens in Kent, I wouldnt like to say which is the best. I used to live in the Weald and was always out somewhere.


Caterpillars, nasturtiums

You could pick them off and put them on the cabbages then, no doubt they would stay there

Would that feed do for blueberries Dave?

That was the only one I could find, but the Coopers one is a nice leef green instead of that aqua colour, I would rather have white than that. 


Help. Not sleeping.

You're right Bekkie, my OH can sleep watching tv, noisy music, adverts, all sorts, I cant wake him, get him in bed and he is moaning that I have a tiny dim light bulb to read by and its keeping him awake.

I now use the tablet to read with paper background set to black and the writing very dim, Oh this sleep problem affects us all in some way.

I have found it, I cant see anywhere else selling this though, when they say green fleece they mean 'green'as in friendly.

There is one that looks very pale green, i have written to them to check.

Meanwhile,  I have just found the new Coopers one, it wasnt in the catalogue I used.

I cant get the actual page for this but try copy and pasting this

Pleased you got some sleep Pauline.

I think that if you can talk openly about it you then realise that there are a lot of people in the same boat so you dont think you are alone.

I slept quite well last night as I shifted a load of granite chippings around the drive and laid the membrane neat,was absolutely whacked!

In the early spring through to summer I always take a note pad to bed then when I am awake worrying that I might forget to do something, I write it down, another worry less.
