It had to be removed from the pond because the Carp and Koi were shredding it and pulling it out of it's pot.  I trying to grow it so that it can stand up for itself.  I personally would get rid of the fish but they belong to OH and he assures me are worth mega bucks.

I have a small water lily in a tub that I think I need to move so that the water doesn't freeze.  Do water lilies have to be kept submerged or can they just be kept in a tray of water so that they don't dry out?  All my other water lilies are just left in the pond but that is a far greater volume of water so will not be as cold.

I have 3 Garden Wonder tubers that have looked like this for the past 3 years.  They have continued to grow well so it may not be a disease.  If you are concerned store them on their own over winter and see if they grow next spring.

Plant id please

Thank you.  I think it will be ideal, let's hope the environmental chap on the council does too.

In order to gain planning consent for a fence I need to plant a mixed hedge in front of it.  I don't want to use hawthorn etc.  I spotted this plant in the hedge on the opposite side of the road which I like.  Does anyone know what it is?


Neighboring horses eating my garden - advise please

I had a similiar problem but it was resolved when I planted a yew hedge on my side of the boundary.  Electric fence is now maintained as yew can poison horses

It's possible that both websites are maintained by a single company that made a mistake 

Any ideas anyone?
