Obelixx, nice to be different , Shaun comes from the NE as do I wet legs are part of the joy of living in the best part of the UK. Two years of dry arid desert never a single drop of rain made me realise how lucky we are, home on leave I sat on the village green in pouring rain, soaked happy relaxed, went back to other baking climates and returned to do the same, wet legs, yes, much better than sun parched skin and rationed water.
The planting on Shaun's garden is low meant to be cut back so you take your choice, concrete the lot and have dry legs or have the lovely aroma of herbs and flowers as you get out of the car. You take your choice, here in the NE we wear wellies for best, gardening is open sandals, wet feet? Who cares.
