I just think it's nice everyone who's a regular, without a personal vendetta against certain aspects of GW.. ahem... respects each other, which I think it really important and the main reason I now I have a stab at helping some people's questions. I wouldn't have dared to do that to begin with. I've grown in both confidence and imagination in regards to my gardening thanks to y'all!

OH wants courgettes but I cant stand the taste. bleurg.

I've been unable to source any seeds in GCs, but if I ordered some seeds online am I too late? The info I've seen seems to suggest so. I thought I might be able to find some plants at my local blooms but I have been totally unsuccessful, which is a shame because I'd have loved to have put some in at the allotment this month.

Another one for next years list methinks!

The freegle one Rose? The Worcester one is fairly inactive, the freecycle one however is usually quite good, it's just getting to a post before it goes! It's given us so far two pallets for the lottie, and umpteen pots for potting on seedlings. Not too bad!

This is the first thread I've correctly problem solved, so thank you Pops3! Hopefully it doesn't cause you too much concern, I'm quite fond of cuckoo spit, it means summer is coming to me!

If you're brave if you move away the bubbles with your finger you can see the tiny little froghopper, I think they're quite sweet as bugs go!

Something I know!!

It sounds like Cuckoo spit, it's just a little green bug that excretes the bubbly substance, as far as I know it's nothing much to worry about, I've got it all over a hedge, and so long as you don't sit under it, it's no problem at all, the rain usually washes it off.

Have a quick google for more info

Those chantilly ones look perfect for what I want! Thank you!

And thanks for the tips everyone else! Everyone seems to find these wonderful skip finds, and there's no skips around me! Grr!

I'm with Scott, not sure it's any of our business regardless. Lets just hope it's all sorted quickly for him.

If he did trip over Nigel I feel for him, I spend most of my days falling over one of my cats who's main aim in life is to kill me i'm sure.

Forget the flowers, I want those little raised beds in Carol's section! I can but dream!

I may look into a small clematis because I currently have my biggest pot devoted to my sweetpeas with a homemade bamboo structure thing, wigwam? Anyway the sweetpeas have all died after I stupidly tried to split them, for their own benefit mind, and it seems the ideal spot for a clematis, maybe a white variety? I don't have any white flowers.

I don't have any ground by the house Yarrow, it's all slabbed. I'm not sure how I'd ensure it's safely attached to the house. If I'm imagining it correctly that is.

I saw something on a roof terrace the other day that looked lovely but I don't know what it's called. It's sort of in a corner shape to fit in a corner... Obviously... And there's three shelves in it. Each shelf had a pot on it with some sort of tumbling ivy in them. It seemed to be a painted white iron, with a dainty little pattern at the top. Looks a little like the corner units you'd find people store pots and pans on?

I'd like to go to an auction/car boot but I work every Sunday and the car has seen better days in all honesty. I'm hopeful about a bench someone is selling for ??10. It's just fitting it in the car!

Hope everyone has had a lovely day!
