Derrick’s revenge?

The weather has been lovely these past few days, ideal for sitting out in the garden. However, someone, almost certainly Derrick the Evil Pigeon, has targeted my garden bench with this dirty protest.

Tsunami of tsunflower seeds

I am drowning in literally millions sunflower seeds having sent off to Guerrilla Gardening HQ for them. I must admit that I didn’t expect to get quite so many and got a bit of a shock when I opened the envelope and they spewed out onto my lap, the floor and everywhere. I have […]

Chip chip hooray!

I have had a team of three tree surgeons working in my back garden for several hours today. Not only are my trees now much healthier and neater but I also have 12 bags of chippings from the trees’ munched up bodies. This is great news seeing as we haven’t had a delivery of […]

DG speaks! To us!

Today the most exciting thing imaginable happened – we got an email from…Dr DG Hessayon, the fount of all gardening knowledge!!! I am still in shock and shaking. He says he has heard our song inspired by his Expert series of gardening books and thinks it is “great fun”. “I’ve gathered a number of […]

How do u know if you’re a loser?

Dan has been analysing the traffic to the Can You Dig It? website and has unearthed some interesting information about the search terms that have led people here. For example, we are the number one search result for “Shropshire bag lady” and for “Movie with a giant squirrel”. We also come up when people […]
