Always felt the " vigilante" system had a lot going for it.  I know there are problems with it but often it is the way to deal with situations.  I'm sure we have all gone some way down this road to sort issues.....successfully.

Wot u after Dove?  

hydrangea - is it dead?

some garden cemtres give a warranty with their plants.  If so take it back.  If slugs/snails were the culprits you would at least have a few more "sticks" ...bare stems show for it.  Did you over mulch?  I have a feeling you might have done...!!!

Thanks Runny.

thats is pure evil throwing that dog to his death.  Just wish the law was such that we could do that to him. if this "thing" can do that to a dog what will he do next?

Been hot today.  Not scorching but delightfully so 

dug up my lavendar hedge today....20' or so and been superb for 20 plus years.  Prob longer if I count.  I remember Chris Beardshaw on BG telling us to dig such old bushes up and replant deeper.  To me that is nonsense.....(upset a few CB fanclub groupies now ..ha ha).  I think the hedge could actually have gone on a bit was superb again this year...but I will plant another elsewhere.

so I had a good bonfire with the lavendar....smoke everywhere,,burnt my fingers and I was told I "stank" of had fun  . Had to relight it later but almost gone now.

took Spike to the river today....he meets all his chums there and those with treats.  Water level high and, in his efforts to catch a ball thrown by a very sillee person, he fell into fhe river.  He panicked a bit and started swimming the wrong way.  Suffice to say muggins here had to drag him out.  Spike, the car and me had a wet journey home.  Soon dried off in the sun.  He is a very old dog and should know better 

busy day cos cut lawns and moved a few plants.  Divided a deschampsia and it will be fine



Building New Raised Bed

Posted: Yesterday at 17:21

Steve has said pretty much what I think too.

a narrower raised bed...4' or so.

Lining the bottom seems unnecessary to me Newboy

If you can mix some of your own top soil there it would be good
