Hi Bubb,we have a wall and a garage that face North as the season goes through it gets a tiny bit of shadowy sun due to next doors huge tree, (that's OK it a nice one )so most of the time NO sun,we planted a this years cutting of honey suckle a few months ago its now 9 feet high 7 feet wide and full of flower on a fan shaped wire support,looks stunning, along the garage a Passion flower now 5 feet high and just started flowering,also a clematis now 4 feet high and just finished flowering all in the shade fed with Nettle Tea and TLC the flowers are not as rich a colour as those in sun and shade but still well worth having all free cuttings all looking good,next year they will take over the entire wall and garage and look great, I cant upload at the moment or i would put pics on to show you sorry good luck

lawn ok

Hi all ,just an update on feeding a very sorry lawn, a small lawn we inherited about 15 x 15 mtr was very sad ,3 weeks ago Kate gave it a shortish cut and i watered in at about 40/50 to 1 Nettle tea, the tea had been bottled and was about 3 months old, the lawn is now as it should be green on green, it took about 4 days to see a difference begin, it had had plenty of water before so i think the Tea was the answer and of course the recent rain has helped, i think a couple of feeds a year would keep it fit so a nice lawn now,Ok good luck all PS i cant upload so no pics, avagunen Alan4711
