Hi Dorset, that reminds me when I lived alone, one morning there was a right commotion downstairs. A grey squirrel had got through the cat flap and was trying to get out. I just to open all the doors leading to the garden and wait for its frenzy activity to take it out.

Hi Bob, like you I do all the landscaping in the cooler months. I have a boarder to extend, I want to put three rows of plants in next year instead of one like this year. They looked like a row in a firing squad!

Just picked this up today in a sale. It looks like a succulent. I have been on a website giving care tips, just wondered what other people have to say.

I take mind out the garden about now, give the roots a trim to fit into a 3 to 4 inch flower pot. Cut back some top growth and keep them in the garage up against the window. I also pile up old polystyrene trays around them to reflect the light back on them. Also to prevent any grey mould, I dust them in yellow surpher.
