Me neither, and I spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to do it.

Glad it just isn’t me, I have given up for the day. Maybe see if my children can manage it, I definitely think parts of Pottermore are not designed for anyone over the age of 15.

the gnomes have to get thrown over the hedge on the right side of the garden, not the broken stone wall; let go of the mouse just as they’re pointed toward the hedge

lelly66, how many times did you have to whirl each one round before letting go? (I can’t believe I just wrote that sentence.)

I don’t think it matters how many times you whirl the gnomes, but it’s all in the timing of letting go, it took me a few goes, but as lelly66 says just let go when they are pointing towards(of slightly above) the hedge. I had to have about 3 goes, I’m not very good at that sort of thing.

Duncan managed it for me and even volunteered to come do yours WeenyOwl and V-J if needed. He did it on the first try on his account and mine, I just decided that I was hopeless.

Thanks to all your excellent advice, I was able to de-gnome the garden. And I found the Floo Powder unaided!

I love how there is more sound effects and hidden animations and mini-games… Plus the bonus at the end for going back and starting over!
