Morning guys! Well I got up at 5:30 this morning and in the car at 6:30 to go to work (half and hour down the road) and I've just this minute got in from 4 failed routes...The whole of Sussex seems to be under water! 

Aw thankyou Buzy, that's made my day 

Fidget - was it anyone close? Sorry for you loss

Wow! That really is a mountain! What's happening with it all?! Not like you can just accidently drop it over the other side of your garden fence  And I hope you haven't drunk all of that Clarington, I'll get you a leaflet for Alcoholics Anonymous!

Haha! I have gone into crisis mode, going to a posh do at the weekend and have literally no 'nice clothes' even my jeans have grass stains on them! Me thinks a trip to primark may be in order. Can't afford decent clothes, all my money's gone on seeds and seed trays!

They obviously think mud and dirt out people off gardening, but the truth is, nearly all of us have clothes with holes in from the attack of the bramble, pollen all over our clothes and in our hair from passing plants, soil stuck like cement to out footwear and all up our trousers, it's really not glamorous!

Stipa tennuissima, agave, ophiopogon nigrascens, borage, fennel, lavender and echinacea I can think of off the top of my head, but as salino says, verd would be the man for that

Garden girl, are you on an old waste site or something, they seem some really interesting finds! I'm jealous, all I get is old beer cans left over from my alcoholic grandad! I know what I'd rather find

But bare in mind that plants with waxy leaves will usually take a lot longer to break down, compared to most natives and thinner leaves plants.
