dog burns

Posted: 15/02/2013 at 14:17

I have a friend who has trained her dogs to go on a large pourous paper mat, which are specially made for animals/toilet training etc. I dont know unfortunately what they are called but both dogs use this for wee and poo. The older dog now uses it overnight in the kitchen to save accidents. She places one outside every morning to the left of the kitchen door so they have continuity.  I suppose it depends on how old they are old dog and new tricks...... Her lawns are perfect and her veg patch is astounding with no doggy input.

I have a large borderdeep  that is perennial approx 48 mtrs its interspersed about every 8 footapprox with crab apple trees, with a large 6ft fence as the backdrop. Over the past year even though I have a large tree at the bottom of the garden I have lost my birdlife even though I have bird feeders everywhere and a dovecote given protection by the tree, obviously my feathered friends do not appreciate the openness. I am struggling to find a solution with upright evergreen bushes to plant against the fence that will give me winter colour and berries and the local birds protection, my soil is heavy and the shrubs I would like to grow eventually to the height of the fence. I am looking for ideas if anyone can give me any?

Hi Verdun many thanks for your advice it was bought as a 6" potted cutting unfortunately from an internet site as I cannot find anyone that sells it or are able to order it in? Even the national garden centre chains cannot get hold of it. Which I find a little bizarre, hopefully when this one arrives and the weather improves for planting it will be succesful as the specimans I have seen have been stunning.
