Thought I'd seen it before. I've been to Kalami and Kassiopi, but years ago. Went to Corfu with first (late) husband for our honeymoon and went again when daughter was small. Loved it. Saw it on TV recently, much more built up. We stayed in Nissaki.

I tie my unruly bits of clematis to their supports with green garden twine, very gently. It's older shoots will be brown.

Weeds for compost? ????

Please don't, one may escape into someone's garden! Burn them, horrid things, I hate them. They disappear under my stone walls and come out when I'm not looking. Destroyed my asparagus bed.

Morning all. Grey day. Have given daughter her birthday presents. Going to a restaurant in Poitiers for lunch but smallest grandson (5) doesn't feel very well. Daughter says he'll be OK when he's had some paracetamol. I hope so.

Large school allotment raised beds

The manure does need to be well rotted, not smelly, black and crumbly. Don't use it for carrots and parsnips. Best to have 2 or 3 beds and rotate the crops. This is a guide from the RHS. https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=124
