Had to stop my post there as the marmalade I'm making was ready to pot. It's turned out much sharper and with more flavour than the pot I have in the cupboard, a bought one. First time I've seen Seville oranges for sale in Leclerc.

Also in Leclerc (hypermarket) they were setting out shrubs, compost and gardening stuff, so a Nandina Fire Power fell in the trolley.

That is Viburnum Tinus with the wrong label, not Eve Price - which is pinker.

Looked up that Liquid Amber, really thought you were talking about a make of bra! Looks gorgeous.

RB, it was about parcels arriving late. M & S used a delivery service who couldn't find the house so my 2 new bras took 3 weeks to come. But they delivered jeans from M & S with no trouble!

How big are vine weevil grubs?

Thanks Dove, but the creeper is on the sitting room wall, not my bedroom and other rooms get aired too. But not today - Brrrrrrrrr too cold!

getting rid of weeds from the garden

I would be very wary of composting couch grass, whatever you do to it. It's as tough as old boots and a pain in the neck. I've sprayed it with glyphosate in one bed several times and it always comes back.
