Didn't notice sorry. I try to buy local/British produce, but it is sometimes difficult. I'm a big fan of farm shops, but even there I tend to check the source. Needed onion yesterday, in Morrisons they were all from New Zealand. can you believe it??

I've got too much water, my trugs and watering cans are all outside collecting water. I don't have space for water butts, but we are having problems with water coming off the hills and into my garden under the wall from the neighbours. Their house is housing association property which tends not to be very co-operative. I live in a row of 4 cottages built in 1795 so I am worried about the effect that all this water might be having. Think it might end up as a solicitor job!

Morning, was hoping for an early start in the garden today, but still wet here.

I' m hoping I misheard Jean, it's far too early for frost. A trip to Yorkshire sounds good, we are right on the Yorkshire border here, so often for a day out. enjoy!

I responded to Budgeio in Afghanistan, but not sure how much help I was, must be a really difficult environment. I bet some of our gardeners will come up with some ideas.

A 'fun day' Flo? That sounds as though it might be very active! Good luck!

Hi again, just put a search into google for flora in Afghanistan, it mentions artemisia, phlomis, nepeta, thyme and mint. also says there are wild tulips. Haven't worked out how to paste the address using an iPad, but you will find it easily on google. Hope this helps with some ideas.

Welcome to the forum Budgeio. Sounds as though you have a tough job on your hands, probably in more ways than one! What sort of plants have you seen in the local area? That might give you some idea. I am sure some of our Gardener's who are more expert areas will come up with some suggestions. What will the winter conditions be like?

Morning Jean, I am hoping that I misheard her! That would be just what we need to finish off a dreadful summer.
