Where do i find the seeds? some of the flowers have started falling off now.

Crocus suggest the following procedure:

Saving seed

Cover the flowerspikes with paper bags (such as the those used by bakers to wrap baggettes) to collect the seeds. When the seedheads have dried, shake them to remove the seed and scatter them where you want them to grow. Seeds for other varieties can be sown from early spring to late summer in a coldframe or directly outside in prepared soil. Self-sown seedlings that occur in other parts of the garden are best transplanted when the leaves are about 10cm long. Make sure the newly moved plants are watered very well to help them establish because they have very fine roots which can be damaged easily.

KEF- the problem is - will they do anything? I know what you mean about spammers doing it for the hell of it but I'd hate it if it puts new people off using the forum when they need some help.

Perhaps Sue's email will have some effect. Perhaps we should all email - how did you do it Sue? 

Went to Home, scrolled right down to bottom of page, clicked on Contact Us, and hey presto, mail page comes up!
Interesting to look at the names of the posters, don't sound very European to me!!

Have just sent an e-mail to GW web adminstrators to do something about this kitchen spam, e.g. put a spam filter in. Whether it will do any good is in the stars, here's hoping!

Diluted Jeyes Fluid apparently gets rid of cats, maybe pouring some of that down the holes will work as well!

Garden DESTROYED!?

Could it be stone martens? We had stone martens who used to go mad in the garden at night and literally crash their way through the plants crushing everything. They are a real pest here and particularly like to chew cables and rubber fittings under car bonnets, in fact car insurance covers marten damage.
