My daughter in law has just given this water lily to me, she says to just chuck it in, no need to pot up.

She also gave some bulrush type grass which she said to pot up in soil. What do you think about the lily though, any siggestions please?

Take care where you put the mouse traps

Posted: 24/03/2015 at 10:29

I can never see the point of using mouse/rat traps, there are hundreds of rodents in the garden, whatever is the point in trying to catch one!!!!

This goes along with my other hate of fat balls in nets. Both lethal for birds.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention Nut.x

the one I sent you was pink, I cant believe how quickly it grows, they were just J.Parker bare roots, 3 plants, now everyone has some of it and its translpanted all over my garden, sunny, shady, dry and wet. Bit of a thug probably as I have only had it 3 years this year But you can always thin it out and pass it on, its a big like the Herman the German friendship cake!

Mice or voles will take tops of daffs and tulips.

Weed membrane good or bad?

Posted: 24/03/2015 at 09:16

If you have used the correct membrane the water will drain through. I cant see from the picture but that looks like plastic sheeting, the correct stuff looks like a woven mesh. It will stop the weeds coming up through, but seeds will blow into it and those yoh will have to pull out.
