Anyone for Coffee

Yes definitely for the compost; some branches of Starbucks will give you used coffee grounds too.

Verdun, will the Fuschia be ok in semi-shade with good drainage?

My camera doesn't do justice to the Lisianthus; it is very intense

You are right about it needing to be frost free in the winter, sorry can't advise on pruning. If no one here knows then you could look it up on the Royal Horticultural Society site (RHS). They may have some info about it.

 At last the Lisianthus is in flower; sowed seeds last Feb, potted on and read that it would be 70 days from potting on before it flowered.

This is the Fuschia I bought yesterday at West Acre; Fuschia Magellanica Alba

Chocolate Vine climber Akebia Quinata

I was the naughty person who walked over the herbacious border to hold the Akebia seed head for the photo and it was weird, sort of woody on the outside but that incredible pale lilac colour.

Nut, on RHS site, re Akiba it says it produces seed head if 'pollinated by another clone'. I expect that makes more sense to you than it does to me.
