Fox poo

The smell is a giveaway.   

can you physically put up a barrier each break up his routine?  

A neighbour let his dog poo at the entrance to my drive.  I picked it up, rang his bell, and returned it on his doorstep. Guess what?  No more poo

Fleurisa.  True.  But glyphosate has no affect in autumn when "plants die back"

Hiya Adam

If you think the plants will be damaged by passers by a windbreak mesh ....usually tight gauge dark green woven material .....secured to some posts along the row will offer some protection for a year or so.

Whats your plans for next year.

I've already ordered plants I want for next year. ,whole batch coming on Thursday.  Some heleniums prob next week for delivery.  Amd I've been securing plants over  the summer for next year. Couple of new areas to plant up and one I've already made a start on. At the foodbank I'm obligated to providing plants for couple of the volunteers too so my soon-to-be divided plants already have their new homes booked 

I blame the forum for making me buy more and more plants.  No, not really!  Been gathering plants for long time now

Not too expensive if you live here.  It's the postage costs.  

I'm tempted as easily as everyone else by new plants but really we don't know how these new introductions will perform year in year out.  So much hype and frenzy so we need to research them a little first if we can.  The dilemma is we must have them....NOW.  The growers know that.  Looking back, an awful lot of money has been spent on the latest echinaceas, hellebores, agastaches, etc etc etc.  Some have been good.  Some no better than weak annuals.  Ah well.  Nothing will change......

Oh new taraxicum out.  Bigger and better than ever.  Flowers throughout the year.  Simply indestructible, easy to grow and will brighten up your garden in the darkest days of winter.  Only £13 for small plug.   Gotta have that........
