Has she a Blue Badge? It certainly sounds as though she could do with one. She does not have to own a car to qualify.

Except for the very deadlies most pets do not attempt to eat plant seeds. You have to watch out for things like slug pellets and rat poison though.

There are far more poisonous things in the garden than you might imagine but usually they cause no harm.

Just asking but is the wall one where there will be a damp problem if you pile up anything like a rockery against it?

It's not a house or garage wall is it?

Ivy is a thug; not surprised there has been a problem with it.

Did you mean to write 'exposed wood' rather than 'foliage.' Usually glyphosate won't work if sprayed on wood. But it will work if sprayed on young shoots.

It was an interesting piece about it on last week's Gardeners Question Time on Radio 4. It's worth a listen.

Yes, I've just looked. I got it wrong. I would just get my computer to treat it as spam and send it to the bin.

I do still think it is a shame if Mike is bullied, however much of a p***k he is. I actually laughed out loud when I read - only a glance, mind - that he regards himself as an academic!

Why, oh why, oh why does anybody give Mike their email address so that he can PM them??

I am not happy about his being driven from the site, because that is just bullying, but cannot those that find his posts tedious, just ignore them.

Waterlogged Garden never gets the sun

Sorry, but any suggestion of overall paving and pots is just so eco-unfriendly. I offered to water the garden of friends when they were away. Everything was in pots - loads of them - and I had to apply gallons of water; every day. Luckily for them they were unmetered. Perhaps if they had been they would not have had so many pots!
