I love gnomes- have far too many to count. Also owls, faries, angles, cats and many other.

It was bent up so I could take the pic! Can't wait to see it fully open.

Still having problems trying to upload pics of my other Hellebore.

Please help- I have never used a composter before and so am not sure what I can put in it. I think that I need to separate very green stuff with cardboard or similar to stop it going slimy.

Is it ok to put pruning from fuschia, roses, clematis?

I'm sure it's ok to put bits I cut back from perennials.

Some pelargoniums I tries to overwinter died and had whitish dust on them, can these be included?

What about weeds from cracks in paving including grass?

Finally what about moss growing on the top of pots and down the side of the house?

I finally got out in my garden (well if you call a 7m by 4.5m paved area a garden) over the weekend. Pruned clematis, roses and fuchsia. Also cut back old perennials from last summer. When I cut back I found a lovely dark Hellebore. I agree that it's too easy to become hooked. I tried to add some pics but it let mechoose which I wanted but then when I clicked upload- nothing!

Really need some help, badly!!!!

Everyone on here is so supportive. Do look on the seed swap, I only have seeds of flowers( gave all the veg ones to a neighbour ), but I'm sure someone has something that would help you. Good luck xx
