I've grown them and they didn't come to much. Just as a flower though, not as a food crop. I have seen them looking quite good in other gardens.

Oh, not quite gardenImg but I will stop making jokes on the forum because I know they aren't punny, er funny!

how would we know it was really you if you did that Verdun

Next year, as I said last year and the year before, I will not have so many plants I've grown from seed, sitting around in pots, needing attention all summer.

I haven't started well, been swapping seeds already. 

then the local GC will reduce seeds at the end of the season

chiltern seeds will have some reduced, secret seeds the same, other seed lists will arrive. 

oh well, perhaps the year after

I couldn't find the original thread, couldn't remember what it was called.

I get the newsletter from the bumblebee conservation trust and they have a bit to say about the dead bees,

The newsletter is always interesting and worth signing up for

Tree stump removal

A stump grinder will grind it up. If you remove the ground up root and replace with good soil you've got your garden back.
