For full sun i would recommend a hibiscus, i recently bought one and although small at the moment, will eventually be a nice size.

I bought Hibiscus Baby Blue, cost about £10, its currently in a pot until i decide where it will finally end up.  Pic below

I got about 60 in the bag i bought this week, the tulip bulbs around 50 per bag, they seem to be good quality and decent size.

Range are also doing bags of daffs, 3KG for £4 I think.

I have a large area with decking and 2 small patio flagged areas, the top flagged area now has a greenhouse on and the decking has lots of pots and planters on it.

I wouldnt call it dead though as Verdun suggests, horses for courses and having decking can be both practical in all weathers along with nature/wildlife friendly.

I posted this on the forum you suggested FG and got  a correct response, it is a Mamestra brassicae (cabbage moth)

Can anyone help me identify this caterpillar i spotted this morning?

It appears to have a white lower body and black/plum upper body.  i have done a quick search through google images but i dont know of any good webpages to identify caterpillars.

Dont want to offend SD but a TV program dedicated to tools and maintenance of them would be very dull, i cant imagine many people tuning in to watch that.

If someone needs advice on how to do it youtube has everything anyone should ever need, and to pre-empt anyone saying not everyone uses a computer, that is not a reason to create a program for the minority that dont.
