Hi Lisa, sorry you were lectured, it was unnecessary, but maybe LG just got out on the wrong side of the bed this morning!

Another thing you can plant now, i.e. as soon as the night temperature is regularly above 10°C, are french beans and runner beans. They can be frozen too, so could keep you going over the winter.

Have fun trying everything out and don't hesitate to ask again if need be, most of us are quite friendly.

Ideas for a strawberry planter

How about some herbs, parsley, chives, basil, mint, oregano etc., etc. Google herbs in pots. Or violas, they bloom for ages.

Communal garden - council keeps destroying our plants

Posted: 12/05/2013 at 10:28

As the flats are private, I'd put up a notice saying "Trespassers will be prosecuted and that includes council groundsmen! Joking aside, could you not put up some kind of fence between your property and the path? I would send the council a bill for the destroyed plants!
