Hello Forkers December

I've just been catching up with dreaded HW too, hoovered all the downstairs, but now I feel exhausted so doing as you said Clarice, having one of those cold cure drinks with paracetamol and de-congestant.

I will only be planting my last 2 bags of tulips. Then looking at catalogues and waiting for the snowdrops. Unless the weather is gorgeous in January it's my time off from the garden month.

how to support 24 climbers in small garden?

Your photo hadn't come up when I posted. That looks lovely, but I expect it's expensive.


Good point from B3. Also there are 3 pruning groups of clematis. Some need hard pruning and some need hardly any, so don't get them muddled up. They are hungry and thirsty too so will need feeding and watering when in growth.

Is the fence strong enough to support wires for the clematis instead of heavier trellis? You could bang in posts at intervals and put wire or trellis between them. Obelisks are fine, but vary a lot in height and price. You could make wigwams, such as for runner beans, but metal canes covered in green plastic last longer in the ground than bamboo.

Morning all. -5°, big frost.


Had a bad night. Sore throat, nose running down throat made me cough. I've just got up, OH fed the horses.


OH lost his car key, ordered new key yesterday at vast expense. When he fed the horses he put on an ancient anorak that he hadn't worn for a bit and keys were in the pocket. ???  On Christmas Eve son found OH's keys among the stockings that the children had laid out in the inglenook.

I hope you've all had a good Christmas. Thank you for your Christmas wish, aym.


It was mild, damp, grey with some rain over Christmas. Colder today with sun and a frost this morning.
