that s very surprising!  My mum told me that the reason bluebells end up carpeting woods is cos they emit a poison that destroy other plant life... obviously not garlic though!

At the weekend got apples, sloes, blackberries, rowan berries and a few chestnuts.  Also a massive bag of cooking apples from the bloke bless 'im.  cheers

Got the next couple of days off to deal with it all and go and get the Rosehips I spotted on sunday.  Nice. :happyflower:
