I have 2 cats and they don't cause any trouble in my garden unless  an unneutered Tom comes in, then they will fight.

When the unruly visitors come in, my Super Soaker water pistol comes out.

I don't have any trouble with cat poo.

I've got a little pond that has frogs visit every year.

Haven't seen a hedgies this year.

I use pellets around small delicate newly planted plants.

I pick up live slugs and snails and chuck them up on my garage roof for passing birds.

The pellets I use defiantly kill slugs because I see them all shrivelled up covered in flies.

I haven't been out this week due to adverse conditions .

Rain, hail, snow with occasional bright spells that don't last long enough for the grass and weeds to dry or for me to put my wellies on !

Hello summer !

Have been to Aldi this morning to buy myself one of these flame throwers.

Listen out for the fire engine later in the week...

Emma Lou that's a good idea. Aldi have them for £14 at the moment.

I'd have to be careful not to set the whole front garden on fire though ! Could be a disaster !!

Thank you both for your good wishes.

Thanks Verdun, I'm recovering from a brain tumour and kidney cancer so slowly is the only way for me at the moment.

Thanks for the responses.

I do have a half moon and a spade but not a lot of strength to use them !

I'll wait for a good day, (health and weather) and make sure I can carry a watering can without slopping it everywhere !

Hello everyone. A little help please.

I haven't been very active in the garden due to very ill health last year/this year and my problem is that the lawns have crept over the sides of my drive by about a foot each side. There is no edging as such, I used to keep it all clipped short with a natural edge between grass and gravel.

I'm not fit and bendy enough to get out there on my hands and knees so I'm looking for a weed killer to do the job for me. A dissolvable one for the watering can would be easier that a spray I should imagine.

Any ideas ?
