Nope, only pharmacy portions available, 200 gr for £2.50! Will check pharmacy here, they may have it and as said earlier on, you don't need much, so it will have to do.

Thanks for the link, Dove, but I think postage from USA to Switzerland would cost a fortune. Will go and have a look on Amazon Germany, they might have it.

Rotavator to tame paddock? Will it work?

This isn't a joke, but if the paddock is fenced, could you "borrow" a goat from somewhere, they will eat up anything, from thistles to brambles!?

Thanks for the info Bob. Mine is behind the pond and has about 3 feet each side to grow into. By the time it gets too big, I probably won't be around anymore!

or most good garden centres 

What an amazing amount of garden goodies you can get in the UK, and so cheap too, I do envy you. Can't get half the things like that here! Still, at least Tomato Fertilizer is available, got to be grateful for small mercies!

I have a question re pampas grass too. I planted one last year, it has one "flower" and is about 25cm across. Do I cut the lot down now or just leave it until it gets bigger?

Well done Swiss sue.  Better late than never but you sound a nice lady who gave Brumbull the benefit of the doubt

Goodnight Sue 

Good morning everyone!

Have never, ever felt such a fool before! I knew he was a bit unusual, but never dreamt it would come to this! I sincerely hope he can be stopped before he does any more damage, my ignore button has been activated too.

I don't post much on here, but I enjoy reading about all your activities and all the tips and information on plants etc. and in particular all the lovely photos.

Have a sunny day everyone and keep up the good work.
