They are pretty common. They are a pain in the arse. If you see them...put them in a tub and leave for the birds.

Moonlit Hare, I had a sneaky suspicion you may have a few of your own remedies 

I use that site a fair bit. Stick the others up and lets have a look please. 

Nettles are good for tendons as well. All plants carry a colour which works with the Chakras of the body. If you 'slip' your eyes, you can see its aura which indicates what part of the body it was and is used for 

Sage has a natural aura of blue, your throat chakra is blue, therefore it works well as a gargle for sore throats or laryngitis.

Mandy...how can you mix up elderflower and cow parsley? Ones below your feet and the other above your head 

What has happened???

I have been writing a book now for sometime with all the magical, medicinal and historical uses of herbs and plants in the garden from medieval times to now. I need to know, and cant find it anywhere, how you know what seeds can be planted 'ripe' straight from the plant or stored. Can anyone give me a rough guide line as to the rules of seeds please??

Nuts right. Only thing to be careful is if your lifting turf for veg is wireworm and leather jackets. They will eat and deatroy everything. I have the same problem. I have had to leave the ground dormant for a year while regularly digging it over. I lost everything i put in last year to the wee buggers.

Oh, and if you have a burn, crush up some lavander leaves and flowers...mix with a little honey and apply under a bandage. Leave over night and it will minimise or even stop scarring and will reduce heat and inflamation

A few things

I wouldnt worry about the lawn as its the same all over. There has been so much water and rain fall that even the best drained lawns have been water logged.

Used Compost?
