That is a perfect explanation, Hippophae!

Wow, what a beautiful garden!

A flowering yukka??

The "branch" that has flowered will not flower again and should be cut off. It normally develops new side shoots that will flower next year.

dopey dog (literally) eating lavender

Our Inka hasn't eaten the lavender, but will munch clover flowers and recently chewed half of the dianthus flowers off a newly-bought pot that was in the back of the car with her! She also chews grass (OH thinks she must have had a cow in her ancestry)!

a mound problem

No problem with a Mac Nicola. Put your picture into the Finder under Desktop, make sure it's not too big, 600 x 400 pixels approx. is about right. then click on the tree icon and drag and drop it into open space where it says Select Files, then click Upload. I find drag and drop the easiest. Hope this helps.

"personally I'd rather have foxgloves in my garden than a filthy animal sleeping on my sofa."

I don't think that remark was necessary, Hostafan, or very helpful to the OP. But as you said, to each his own!

Courgette Patio Star

I've got 2 in a 35cm wide x 35 cm deep pot. They are now just growing over the width of the pot and the first courgettes are now 10cm long. Make sure you water them regularly and maybe give them some tomato fertilizer once a week when it starts flowering.

Rocket: pot size and when to harvest

They look ok to me as they are, Mameha. Keep picking the outer bigger leaves, more will follow from the middle. They may flower, mine are starting to, but I just snip the flowers off.
