Can anyone add to this list?
1. Soil doesn't grow. If you chuck it away with the weeds, it's gone for ever.
2 one person's groundcover plant is your neighbour's pernicious weed - and it will be yours in a couple of years!
3 that beautiful, nightly coloured beetle is not a rare species- it's a pest.
4 there is no such thing as a magic tool .nothing does the job in half the time with zero effort
5 buy immature shrubs. If they're happy, they'll soon grow.
