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?

Morning all, :wave:
I have a Kaffir Lime in the house, which is small enough to inspect and clean to remove the little blighters but noticed a build up of them on my Apricot in the greenhouse does anybody have a good method to remove them... do they have an in the soil stage in their lifecycle?
I will but pruning off some new growth this week, but as the fruit is swelling I don't want to "poison" them, currently I rub the scales off and wash the stems with a weak detergent solution.  :sunny:

Advice please!  The quarter of our veg patch where I will be sowing direct all our beans needs rotovating very soon. It currently has a forest of rocket, coriander and oak-leaf lettuce, which we are eating happily. 
We have a light clay soil, which is perhaps a bit on the poor side at the moment. We're going to be adding commercial bought manure before rotating.  I'm wondering whether we would be best strimming our salad to shred it, and rotating it all in, as a sort of green manure in a couple of weeks?  Or whether the salad  growth is taking too much out of the soil now, and we'd be best pulling it up?
Thanks for any helpful comments.
