Wrong information from the BBC

Well, that's a revelation! No wonder mine kept dying when I planted them in my border. Will try again with the right compost! Thanks IDGM and Verdun!

Just posted this to Gail Peacock:

We got rid of ours with glyphosate, double dosage!. First chopped it all down and after that sprayed/filled the hollow stalks and every little leaf that dared to show itself. Took two Spring/Summers but it has definitely disappeared and never came back. Good luck!

I can't help wondering if, when you hose the little blighters off, whether they don't just climb back up the nearest plant where they land and continue munching there?

Something to block out sound of neighbours voice!

Perhaps Rodgy has inherited Wintersong's ex neighbour! But I feel for you Rodgy, had one of those when we had a chalet on a campsite, you could hear her all over the campsite. Fortunately we sold it, now someone else can have the pleasure!

This is my dog Khan guarding the chicks. Sadly he's feeling his age now. He's 11 which is quite old for a big dog. My best friend.

Ah, isn't he lovely, my favourite breed, used to have one many moons ago. Would have another but am too old to keep up with a dog that needs to be kept busy.

Wow Salino, that was exciting, never seen a dog race before, you must be very proud of him.

We have 2 cats, both of which spend most of their time in the garden and prefer the most comfortable places, e.g. garden loungers. They have a special corner of the garden as a cat litter, but have been caught in the neighbour's garden occasionally. Neighbour has installed a sonar cat repellent, but on the whole is very tolerant and will even feed them when we are away.

Butter wouldn't melt in their mouths!
