good book that one Jo.

I think my H. p is more likely to die than get that big Verdun. It isn't happy.

It's not a twiner in my experience Verdun. Maybe I've been lucky

Lovely picture of it in BC's 'Woodland Garden' book. In winter looks great

Petiolaris will cling to a tree. Nice one at Beth Chatto's garden. Less nice one in my garden, it doesn't like the soil it's in

Cotoneasters are some of the easiest shrubs to please

population explosion of voles - help

You've probably got mine Tetley, we've had the population explosion, less now. 

Mowing some areas is like riding a bucking horse. The holes get bigger all the time from use by various beasties plus some erosion

2m is near enough. That will stop quite a bit of wind.  Short stakes are OK, the top can flap around as long as the roots don't.

orange/brown slime in pond ...help!

Posted: 25/11/2015 at 16:38

Whatever it's doing it's probably been doing it for years. My guess would be rusting iron pipes from higher up the drainage system. or, if your area is largely sand/gravel, staining from that. Some of the field drains around here are bright orange from outflow from the gravel washing in the gravel pits
