Just been delving round the back of greenhouse, now a pleasant experience, nasty brambles and some thing with very long vicious thorns, cut it down and neighbour says he will come and cut thick stem -it wasn't there last year - while he has his cutting machinery out

There is a pub in a local village that had to ask customers to leave during their Christmas dinner as the flood waters were rising inside the pub. It is still flooded now!

Also cleared brassica bed ready for onons and garlic, late i know but not as late as last year - oh but I haven't grown onions before

Just done my good deed for the day. Next door neighbour os attempting to rejuvenate his apple trees. Gave him this months GW mag which has picture and instructions, then went around, secateurs at the ready to show him how to cut to a bud

Everyone in the close is 'battling' with uncared for gardens. I think ours was the worst which is why we had to gut it. Every one has moved in, in the last 2 1/2 years!

You need to ask estate agent to be honest about what you can do to help increase the chances of a sale. We did and he was, well, a bit honest!
