Dulcie helped me in the garden and then decided to sun bathe on Johns car, so he is doing well to jump up there.

About  400 in 7 different varieties all in plug pots and tucked safely away in the green house, along with a few mousetraps. Tried some posher compost this year to give them a bit of a start. Miracle Grow, same old council tip rubbish but a few of their little yellow slug eggs  plant food granules that are supposed to perform miracles. I'll still cross my fingers though. That usually works.  My mate done his earlier this season and lost the lot in the cold weather, so all my spare seeds have been given a good home.

A friend has asked the following elsewhere, and I figured that here would be a good place to ask for assistance:

We have an area of garden that used to be the village pond, so there's quite a dip that we can't really do a lot with. In heavy weather, it floods. A pond isn't exactly a great option because the liner would seal the ground underneath so the flooded area would just get nearer to the house. When it happens, it's usually not for long, although it did flood and then freeze this winter so the birds had their own private ice rink.
So my question is, what shubs could I plant in that area that will put up with standing water? It's about 20 feet across so I might as well make a feature of the area. It gets pretty much full sun all day.

A chef used these on the Great British Menu and they looked really interesting - apparently also called Chinese Artichoke.

Anyone tried growing them?
