I'd use engineering pricks or those made for paving. Some others are as obelixx says, they can start disintegrating very quickly indeed, one winter. 

Bumble Bees

Do bumble bees live in hives?

There are bees in my garden, I think that's where they need to be. I didn't know you could get bees in packages. Do they come with instructions?

ID help please

labels, yes. good idea. I've just planted something labeled CL. Looks like a codonopsis so hope it's in the right place.

re the crinum. these bulbs are HUGE when mature,9'' to a foot across, I'm not kidding. (and would need an enormous pot). 

I was given 4 originally and there wasn't much room left in a spud sack.

Crinum x powellii probably. Likes good moist soil. Christopher Lloyd grew some in a bog. They're sad things on my dry soil. Bulbs get enormous, plant it out, sun and moisture and wait.

My Rhino has been very good. 11 years and no problems except the gutter is too narrow. That may have been rectified

Hi Faywray, welcome to the forum. 

The glass of wine and admiration of the garden is essential.

Couple of weed IDs please

It's very pretty. I'd love a wall with that growing in it. 

Our native plants don't get the respect they deserve.
