For a lawn that small you could buy a push along one, no noise, polution and plenty of exersize, other than that, a 12 inch cut flymo would do.

What to do with Begonias

Individual pots, most of mine are large tubers now so I use 6, 7 or 8 inch pots. Plant them with tuber showing above the compost, just like they are in the seed trays. Dont water direct onto the tuber, either stand in a dish and water from the bottom, or carefully water around the edge of the pot. 

When the flower buds start to appear they will benefit from a weekly feed of liquid tomato food.

Dont put them outside yet, much too cold.

I tried spraying the celandine, up in full force again next year. The only way is to dig it out, making sure you get every little white pip out.

Elderberry Tree

I have never known mine to self seed, I think the birds must eat the berries before they drop.

I love the blossom, reminds me of my mums home made elderflower  wine, beautiful!
