We have always seen our newts in previous years conifer. We have a video of one laying eggs and we often saw them just under the surface. Also there's that movement of water as you approach that shows they've just dived. Very little of that this year and I've only found one in the garden. In previous times they were much move visible and I found them in the nursery under seed trays

Nothing like that this year.

We have (or had) GCNs and smooth newts naturally occurring and some rescue palmates

How are we defining gigantic Panda?

Small by my reckoning.

I'll get them under cover before the rain starts proper. I think we're coming in artjak's car which I wouldn't want to fill with mud

I have a few aquilegia pink Barlow types, and some others, 2 purple umbellifers that are not Anthriscus Ravenswing, A Red Dragon persicaria and a couple of Pimpinella rosea. Anyone want? I can bring them tomorrow.

I'd cut it back and let it start again. and treat the soil as Fairy suggests,

I grew one of these when I lived in Essex. One winter the overflow pipe from the bathroom flooded in then froze, it was called the icicle tree by ythe kids. It survived.

I've just started 3 here , one in very poor dry soil, so will see how it copes
