I've never seen it fall off.

Have you got a plan for stopping it when it gets to the top?

It won't beat us. We have chain saw

The ones that have thinned out are probably too shaded. They've thinned out and no longer serve their purpose of stopping the north westerlies

John Innes isn't a make it's a type of compost. Several people make it, some badly I'm sure.

I agree about the laurel. I have some. Some are OK but some have thinned out a lot at the bottom so the kids can't use them for hide and seek any more. Then I cut bits back and other bits die back. Coral spot moves in.

If I were starting again there would be no laurel

I agree, not a gimmick. I usually do a mix of seed compost, very fine grit (aquarium shop) and a bit of multipurpose.

Then some less fine gravel on top of the seeds

Sorry MM, I think it's the end for the laburnum. too much rot. If it's rocking the roots are probably going as well

Yellow irises are so tough it won't matter. The other two I'd leave til summer. Water lilies need to be in growth. I've never grown arum lilies

Spots on herbs

leaf miners are small. I've never found one yet, just the evidence of their activity.

They're probably visible to a good naked eye but I can't focus down that far
