Wow, Fishy, thats brilliant!  you need to dig down about a foot place the liner, with a few little holes so you get a bit of drainage, put some gravel or something in the bottom then the soil on top.

You are such lucky peeps to get to Wisley, I havent been for years, probably 30 thinking about it, please take lots of piccys, i would love to see it now.

Thats a good idea Hollie, dig a hole about 2 ft square by about 4 inches deep and chuck them in.

What colour did you get Fishy?

Fairy, We have some fun in that room, watching the wildlife that is

Fishy, this isnt just a garden, its a park, that piccy is only just one bit of it, its lovely and I am forever grateful to my parents for letting us build our extension on to their bungalow.

Autumn lawn maintenance visit

Thank you, may be money well spent then.

I am going around digging bits up here and there, flowers are nicer really than grass.

I have some of those little variagated euonymous in pots, they would do, and I am hoping for some carex seeds to come up on the seed swap thread. As you can see from this pic, there is lots of hiding places, the conifer just to the left is huge, the elecricity company had to come and take the top out as it was touching the lines, which was a great pity, it was a magnificent tree. But, underneath is a huge space that I have filled with logs and dead grasses, for nesting.

I think sand Fishy, I read in the instructions that the guarantee isnt valid unless you follow it. Its from the same place as ours and we have put sand just in the bottom, where the most weight will be.

Can you get a bag from a builders yard, its only a couple of squid.

Have you got an old rug, (dont take the one from the bedroom, she'll kill you) or a piece of old underlay, that would do.Paper wont be enough, IMO that is.
