"erm yes" As a gardener all my life that is exactly what I tend to do sort of dig stuff up and plant stuff, is there any other way? I would like to know about it if there is. As for Nigel as any Gardener with dogs knows they are the best gardening companions, they dig the holes for you, well my Westy did, keep the cats away my Benji certainly did that, share your sandwiches listen to you moaning about box hedge disease and generally give you a feel good attitude whilst breaking your back double digging. In the Army they called it self inflicted wounds and gardening looked at by a stranger could be seen as that, the hard work in all weathers, Monty is often wet yet still smiles, the frozen fingers in winter I could never work with gloves on and all just to have your own cabbages leeks peas tomato's and fruit, much cheaper in the supermarket so why do we bother I ask? Because it is in our genes to provide and if we get enjoyment out of sitting and looking at our always unfinished labours then that is a bonus.
I love GW Monty and Nigel "oh and box hedges" no accounting for taste is there.
