You are a sensible and wise lady Marion. But probably a lot of people aren't willing to put in all the work that you do. I'm really pleased with my yellow buddleia, a friend gave me a cutting about 6 ins tall and now it's taller than me and been covered with bees and butterflies.

HELLO FORKERS!

BM, I hope that was from laughter, not shock or disgust!

I like bananas exactly as Yvie said.

I removed the tomatoes from the GH and sprayed it all with liquid soap, alcohol and insecticide and it's still got whitefly in it and they are going into the coldframes. Help! Will buy some of those sticky flytraps that the RHS recommend.

If they haven't been blackened by frost then leave them upside down for a bit before packing them for storing to let the sap run out.

I hate the autumn clock changing, why do we have to do it? The days seem so short.

Was Forester really talking about bananas?

Morning all.

Liri said "Anyone know if you can eat couch grass roots??" - How often have I wished that something did! They are in my irises and around the Paul's Scarlet Climber rose.

KEF, you asked what clothes I bought, but it wasn't really that interesting. 2 warm cardigans, a pullover, a long sleeved T shirt with blue flowers on the front and a suede look skirt. Half price in the 5 day "choc". Can't buy jeans in France that don't fall off when I walk, they are all hipsters. I have to wait until I go to the UK to get per Una ones in M & S, but I wish they did more in blue.

The veg garden one could have been lovely done the way that Geoff Hamilton did it, with veg in with the flowers. Don't why Monty says veg have to be grown in rows, Geoff proved they didn't.

Yes they will, mine did. Water them in well, they may flower a little later. Earlier spring might be better if you can manage it.
