Oh no.....NOT AGAIN

I have the same problem with shoes Verdun. Maybe I could swap for two pairs of kitten heels for some aplines?

Handbags - could offer the same. A nice little red shoulder bag for a bare root rose?

Make-up - I've got every shade of lippy under the sun. What say you to Punchy Pink Gloss for a couple of pelargoniums?

Saw one at the flat in Blackheath a couple of weeks ago but not spotted any back in Nottinghamshire. Very pretty. 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Such sad sad news. It's like a member of this generation's nice gang has departed. Blessed to have such lovely memories and plenty to choose from.

Once bulbs come up blind, will they ever revert back to flowering ones in subsequent years? Thanks

Bit of light watering in the greenhouse and admiring some lovely White Christmas roses in the borders, and that's it today. So windy!  

New fence

I was thinking the same as Jo. If you do put up a new fence on your side, do you have any legal rights if his plants grow up it and break it in future? After all, he would then be damaging your property.

there is some case law I recall from uni; Ryalnds v Fletcher. I think it set a president on the theory of something from one property effecting another (but that was a while ago)!

i have a similar situation with a flat I rent out. The configuration is such that along one elevation I get the back gardens of 5 properties. One is an old lady who says she can't afford to deal with her ivy. It has destroyed our lovely Victorian wall and has even grown down our side and up the house. She says her son won't help her. I volunteered to go around and cut it back myself but when I got there the garden was so overgrown that I physically couldn't reach the back. What to do? Just have to keep cutting it back from our side. It's so frustrating though.

Spent most of yesterday reading up on plants. Quite like the idea of a handkerchief tree but worried they may need a lot of room.

Windowsill propagator

Ditto. I wouldnt be without mine. Also it is narrow so doesn't take up too much room and is easy to store when not in use. it is also easy to clean.
