What is this yellow flowering bush.

Do you think when Keith said annual he means it comes every year?

I was looking for an annual.

I had realised that 'bush' didn't mean shrub

Hi Steve, don't know about cement

There are pros and cons to engineering bricks. The pros are longevity and frost resistance. The cons, or maybe just the one, they look like new, harsh, sharp cornered engineering bricks for years.

We went to a reclaimed yard after a hard winter and chose soft, kinder-looking bricks that had obviously been out there for ages without any sign of spalling.

But laid flat between lawn and border you wouldn't notice the sharp edges of engineering bricks would you

There are many types of meadow mix and meadows but one thing they all have in common is a very scruffy run down period

 

Katzi, I googled wildflower turf and lots of sites came up but I've never used it so can't recommend one, sorry
