Makes for very interesting reading, hope I never need to put any of it into action.   

My OH has just said ' I hope we haven't carried any home on our tyres' we sometimes call in Worsborough for a drink. Is that possible I wonder?

Porridge with cranberries, yummy, followed by toast and thick cut marmalade washed down with loads of tea!. Have to try not to bend  too much in the garden after that lot, could get messy

I miss it too, would be the one bright spot on tv in winter, really don't watch much else anyway.

Good job our local library isn't too far away! Love my books

I get a kick out of going to the gym too, circuit training so not too difficult and always makes me feel brighter especially after a giggle with the other ladies  

Chasing young grandson around helps beat the winter blues and a kiss and cuddle when I catch him, well, you can't beat it. Wish I could bottle it and carry it around!

I like it here, too!!

I have been gardening for a number of  years but there are so many things, particularly pests and diseases, I don't know much  about and there's always someone here that has experienced and dealt with these I'm staying!

I just enjoy reading others' experiences in the garden. Ours was completely paved over but is now green and fairly pleasant, still more to do though, as always.

Oh dear, I must have missed something. I have to say I don't read that many posts but as you are  a 'regular' I tend to read yours.

As a fellow Yorkie can I be very blunt and ask you to reconsider?

There was one in the garage of the house we bought, I planted a wldflower mix in it this year and an old metal dustbin, also in the garage, has been painted black and has a fatsia japonica growing in it.

I hate waste!!

Neighbour's Garden is Damaging our Wall

Posted: 16/09/2013 at 18:51

Tanking, as suggested above, may be the solution. We had a property with a garage wall shared with a neighbours garden, that is, the wall retained all one side of  his garden. His land was right up to the garage wall all the way along.

We never had a problem with damp, maybe try this first?
