We have had a problem too. I think the frogs are still in the pond and living off the tadpoles. Also, we have dragon fly lavae that I'm told eats anything.

A pigeon is pulling the heads off my primroses. 

Very scary

Sorry, it is now squashed in the bin. There are plenty of web sites that give you all the info on what to look for. The leaves are very robust and tough looking, dark green. the stems are not ribbed as cow parsley and there is staining of dark maroon up the stem in bloches not a purple flush. The stem when cut has larger hollow, in cow parsley its thicker with small hollow. I'm told they are very poisonous.

last Autumn I transplanted a small seedling that was pretty and put it under my robinia tree. Now it has Dark green shiny, ferny foliage, lovely robust growth, My quess was a welcome cow parsley. On inspection it was too strong and colour too dark So started looking round for identification. Hemlock was the answer. Where it came from , no idea, where it's going, my bin for burning.  Take care, it could happen in your garden.

Talkback: New Zealand flatworms

Posted: 22/04/2016 at 20:51

Are these flat worms actually from NEwZealand? Perhaps they have had them for Quite a few years. Does anyone know what the effects are after all this time and what do they turn to eat when the earthworms are depleted.

Makes one wonder what promises Mr Cameron may have given to get a speech from Mr Obama that couldn't have been better for the STAYIN campaign if they had drafted it for him. Only time will reveal if that is the case.

DO you think that our special relationship with USA is conditional. Sadly I do now.

To follow on from the Viola miracle collection. Was anyone else tempted to buy and how are they doing. Mine are a dissapointment. One small purple flower between the three plants. If you have been successful please tell me how you do it.
