Is it gladioli that only grow out of the new bulbs, not the ones they flowered on this year, like Crocosmia, or am I muddling them up with something else.

It costs £12.00 for you, £10.00 for me, you can apply from 1st November to 1st March, then you go in free for as many times as you like through the year, well, up to end of October, so sooner you do it, longer it lasts.

Slugs and snails getting smaller

You won't find a policeman down here over 14 years old. I wonder if they are old enough to drive.

Back to slugs, they are not babies, just the type they are, I have some of the biggest  wotsits fat yellow or black ones, they make a real mess when chopped up, but good for the compost.

Ok Hosta, I think I will leave the few I have in the ground and they can take their chances, I will just pile mulch on then, they are flowering now!  and you already have my coloured one, if you run out of space you could bin mine if you want to.

We will look out for the weather then, doesn't look good before you go away though.

Eden have started their free locals passes again if you are interested, talking of cannas and other tropicals.

Same here Amber on Dartmoor. I haven't watered the garden at all this year, and the patio tubs and baskets probadly about 6/8 times. Have been known to do it every day before.. 

Don't be scaredy cat.....

I love anything that grows for me. Due to altitude and climate up here I am lucky for anything to grow. Always in the clouds and very damp. There is not a time, ever when we can sit on the grass.

Landscaping cost

My friends had their small garden laid out, twenty years ago and it cost them 6000.00 and that's Devon prices. My dad and I cleared all the brambles and weeds and removed them in return for their greenhouse.

this work does not come cheap. professionals will do it properly, good foundations to the patio area etc. 

having said that, you may find someone unemployed/ self employed wanting a bit of cash in hand, best get three of four quotes, don't let them give you an estimate, must be a quote.

You may find a family work party works out better.
