Where would you suggest Chrissy? They seem to be at the bases of many of our trees?

I can't get the photo facility to work but this link should take you to my blog where I have posted about my front garden.

Basically I want to plant some plants in the borders under the hedge - am currently clearing out the endless weeds and want to create something nice. Once the dead ornamental cherry tree goes we will need something else - any ideas please?

Can't seem to get the link to work either!

Hi Lily Pilly - keeping hens - we have 4 now and I must say they are very easy but garden plants have to be well thought out. We have a large well established garden - with lots of trees so to be honest we don't need to add many flower interests as we feel there is enough going on. We are rural too so our hens have a wonderful life - wandering into the field next door on a late afternoon and their little heads can just be seen through the fence as they sunbathe. Dustbaths are a joy to behold and when I sit and watch them (often for too long) I realise how sad it is for the battery hens. No cockerel - they don't need one - they give us lovely eggs. Cockerels will mean chicks and this is where it all gets complicated. We've done that - we just want nice eggs now. Any questions just shout. I'd recommend anybody to keep a few chickens - strong secure housing - no pesky fox issues.

 Here is one of my hens, Mabel - in what was my potting shed - now the Henhouse! She is laying an egg, bless.
