Aldi have some on Thursday. and some other garden stuff

Where to begin?

My garden had ponds that are at the level of the water table.  This means some areas can be under water at times and totally dried out at others. Plants that seem to survive are the comphreys, Symphytum officinale is the native one. Marsh marigold, Caltha palustris, though that struggles a bit if it's hot and dry. Meadow sweet,  Filipendula ulmaria.  Pendulous sedge, Carex pendula. Cuckoo flower,  Cardamine pratensis.  Flag iris, Iris pseudocorus. Figwort, Scrofularia nodosa

Areas that vary between standing water and completely dried out are very difficult to get looking good towards the end of a dry summer. 

Making up some of the area with rubble and some soil would extend your choice of species

I think it might work if we could all ignore trouble makers so they didn't appear on the thread and if we all stopped talking about it.

We have someone trying very hard to make divisions. so there may well be divisions. We know but new posters won't

With the trouble maker 'ignored' this thread reads perfectly normally apart from our discussion of same

Hi Zoomer my first thought was reed bunting but when I looked at the RSPB website the head is black but the collar is white

Worth having a look to see if it's anything like it
