    Hi we (my Husband and I), are working on our garden and half the path is lined with these which I’ve been watering, and we would like to find exactly what they are as we would like to do the same the other side of the path (half lines the patio the other side of the patio isn’t lined with anything.

    I know they need proofing I haven’t done that yet.

    your help will be very much appreciated.

    thank you
    clair
