I'm trying to make a wildlife patch at the back of our garden. I have left a patch of nettles and let the grass grow but don't know what to do with the cow parsley and docs now that they have set seed. Should i just leave them ?

Evening all, Hope you've all been busy in your gardens.! I only managed a bit of weeding and dead heading this afternoon.  My ground cover roses are doing well this year but i find the flowers don't last long, so dead heading every day ! Picked and ate some of our Enorma runner beans- very nice too. I always enjoy the first meal with them, shop bought just are'nt the same are they ? Off to Shrewsbury Flower Show in the morning, i believe Chris Beardshaw will be there, night folks

 Hi Lindsay, Something like Cotoneaster maybe? Mine has white flowers in the summer followed by berries later in the year. It's evergreen and spreads quickly ,so smothers any weeds .

Has anyone seen a poppy like this before.....

Hi Stacey, never seen one of these before, but it's very pretty !

lots of tiny frogs

I work at Luxury Lodges Wales and the gardener there pointed out lots and I mean LOTS of tiny froglets. There must be hundreds but how many will survive. they were quite near to the pond so hopefully they will be ok
