I'm pleased to hear that they have done work on drainage for you. None of us want to be clomping through mud. I still need to clean my hiking boots after they became caked in mud from my little bit of gardening last weekend. (procrastinating)[/QUOTE]

I am notorious for having 'black fingers' (I had a plastic fern and it wilted!!), but I've bought a self-watering herb pot to go on the deck in the hope I can persuade some herbs to stay alive long enough for me to use the odd sprig in my cooking!!

I'm going to get a water butt to catch the water from the rear down-pipe, but that's not to use the water for plants, it's to stop the run-off turning the slab green/black and slimy!!

I have noticed that Skeggy/Ingoldmells authorities are actually widening (it looks) the drainage ditch. To get rid more quickly, of the excess water from rain. Brilliant.

GARDENING. i hate gardening so much that at home i have no maintenance gardens at home. the front garden i took up the lawn and filled with buff stone chippings for mrs chocy to park her car on. the back garden i did the same (took out the lawn and filled with the same stones). so at the van i dont do any gardening apart from cut the grass which we have to do but only 1 metre width around the van.

Treetops, I'm sure you'll get there eventually
We planted 24 geraniums and 24 begonias yesterday, just in time for the rain today. Oh well, at least its saved us having to water them today.

We gave up with planting years ago, don't get there often enough to water them, and as the van is in full Sun all day (when there is any Sun that is), it just dries them up. So it's artificial for us I'm afraid.
