We have veritable whore house in our pond! At least 15 pairs of toads all in the throes of love making!

Hallo Sloeberrysal

We had the same problem and bought the following from Thompson & Morgan:

It's not cheap, but worked extremely well. Try and remove as much of the weed by hand as suggested above first. You might have to do it twice a year, but can thoroughly recommend.

There's nothing worse than a green pond!

We love Monty!

Have just read this article, total BS! I watched this programme and Monty what actually said was not "don't plant out yet, he said don't hurry to SOW SEEDS! And he was quite right!

I have a Macbook Pro which I bought about 2 years ago on a local online auction. It only cost about £200 and was like new, the guy that sold it was one of these computer gurus who regularly buys the lastest version. Perhaps if you look on eBay you might find something similar, just make sure you read the positive/negative feedbacks carefully and ask questions before buying.
