A friend took a photo of these at a local garden/hall.

 Does anyone know what they are please?



Cats causing problems

Mmmmm, so many different ideas - none of which were successful in our garden. Our garden has a six foot fence all round so we are considering an electric fence all the way round since everyone in the neighbourhood seems to have more than one cat

It won't hurt them but will send a tingle through their paws so will, hopefully, stop them jumping onto the fence then into the garden. 

What's for tea?

Roast beef with all the trimmings today along with a red wine or two.   Followed by home made apple pie with cream for me and ice-cream for him.

Salad tomorrow, to use up the remains, along with Asda seeded chiabatta, the only time we eat white bread

raised beds

You could report the bindweed to environmental health, they'll maybe help get rid of it. We have a friend, trying to sell his house, who's buyer has been refused a mortgage because of the bindweed in the open ground at the end of his garden! He's reported to environmental health  and they're coming out next week. They're going to have a field day as there are quite a few areas affected with it. 

any suggestions

Hi all, hope some-one can help us. We have just moved and now have two beds we don't have any ideas for. We live in West Yorkshire if that's any help.

One bed is a 3mts x 60cm raised bed, up against a low wall with a wooden fence on top (about 1.25mtr high altogether), gets some sun in the afternoon but lots of wind. Also runs along the entry pathway. We'd like something to grow up the fence, to hide it, and maybe something to hang over the front but not sure if there'll be room to put anything between them.

The other is a teardrop shape about 2.5mts long x 2mts wide at it's widest point. Plenty sun but still windy. This is in the main back garden so would like something pretty and fragrant.

We don't really want to re-structure the garden as we're not spring chickens any longer!

Any help and ideas would be much appreciated.

Thanks, Pat
