LAST sum­mer, I de­cided to build a new pond to re­place the old, rigid liner. On lift­ing it out, I found a large, round ob­ject 7in (18cm) across, which looked like a piece of fos­silised wood. I laugh­ingly said I would plant it in a pot and left it by the back door. By Oc­to­ber, the pot was cov­ered in a mass of cy­cla­men flow­ers that as­ton­ished ev­ery­one. It had been un­der the old pond for 10 years!
