Hopeless G; would we shout at you? Never! With Buddleia, they are so full of life that you can do what you want with them. I'm going to cut mine back the moment it has finished flowering to about 15 cm high. At the moment it is 2.5 metres high...and I know it will be back next spring

Any wine makers out there?

FG, I agree about the chard; if I had more flower bed space I would def grow chard there

pennypat, I'm completely addicted to Great British Bake off, but I don't have much of a sweet tooth (excluding marzipan) So I don't think I'll be making decorated cakes, but I find the techniques fascinating

I will do the pectin haze test with meths later on and report back

Dove, it tastes v. good; not vinegary. Is a vinegar mother thick? (Oh dear, sounds a bit insulting)

Are all those veg and flowers made from icing? I thought it was marzipan

Steephill, thank you for that link. I think the wine may have a pectin haze. I will be doing the test tomorrow
