    Just got back to the uk, and i managed to bring the sun with me to the limousan, we had a couple of wet days but thereafter it got warmer and warmer with tues/wed very hot, may it continue for you all, managed to get the borders weeded and cut the lawns, then the mower finally died, its a right old thing but has done me proud, i tried in vain to resuscitate it but she,s finally gone and i just watched the lawns growing with a vengeance before my very eyes, next visit is in July so the grass will be waste high, a new mower and strimmer will be brought to do battle, lol

    No I will not, need a very quick hedge, can’t wait for Laurel to grow, heard all the arguments before, as you don’t know my circumstances you are making a very big assumption that is wrong.

    You will only regret it if you don’t maintain it and let it out of control

    I think your right char, its been gloriously hot today here in Derby, everywhere is so dry, been down the allotment watering all the plants, i have heard talk of possible hosepipe bans if this continues, seems like a pattern is emerging, last year and along with the previous four it was dry in spring then may onwards rain rain rain, just hope i am wrong, the weather extremes we are experiencing these days are becoming very challenging for gardeners, last week we had violent wind here, the neghbours gates blew off and the other neighbours fence got blown down plus a few disgruntled people down the road had there cars dinted by the council leaving yet another type of wheelie bin, they were blown all over the place and into parked cars.

    After a long day doing other peoples gardens i went down the allotment, have scattered a multitude of very unusual poppy seeds which i got from chiltearn seeds on the cottage garden plot, on my topiary plot gave my leylandii easter island statues a trim, then back home in the garden, potted up plug plants of lobelia, begonia and petunia, exciting stuff.
