these are good for doing your leaf mould in, ok for composting if you put some holes in the bottom for the worms

Can anyone recommend a good lawn edging tool?

English Bluebells

all I'm saying is that there are so many hybrids that we may have already lost the English Bluebell in all but a few lucky places. Unless you live near one of these then I wouldn't go too mad in trying to eradicate the Spanish. It's here and will be forever. ????

The vast majority of our so called English bluebells are now hybrids, the only true ones are found in areas that are well away from the Spanish ones! I wouldn't fuss too much about it as you already have Spanish ones around

 Chilli plants are perennial, try overwintering in frost free conditions and they may come back next spring. Don't be alarmed if they lose all leaves, just be patient and see what happens next year
