      Pelagoniums? Watch out for botrytis. The cold has now killed about 90% of them in my front garden, and I've been meaning to pull them out for some weeks. Might be around Dorset next month, let me know where to chuck them.

                      Have they sorted out the levels in the area where buyers park? I can remember if you got the last of the spaces you'd have to park in a 6" deep puddle.

                      A while back there were a bulk bag or two and some used paint tins dumped in a lay by near us. I would have helped myself but I didn’t want anybody thinking I dumped them.

                      Many a time I've helped myself to flytipped pallets and tree cutting waste (trinks and branches of a size suitable for fuel), but loading quickly as I've been wary of prodnoses thinking I'm tipping it.
