I've never managed to keep one more than four years, except the deciduous one, Gloire de Versailles, which can be pruned. Mine always went crispy leaved then died, whether I pruned them or not. I always thought Dordogne winters are too cold for them.

Morning all.

Just seen the weather forecast - rain all week from Thursday, just when 3 children & OHs and 7 grandchildren will be staying.

Welcome to the potting shed

Hello and welcome all newcomers. Lots of gardening advice, but if you just want a chat there is Hello Forkers. Or look at the photos on the Garden Gallery or the Star in Your Garden.

I'm really enjoying your photos now Verdun, took such a long time for you to get around to sending any. Worth the wait.

Bekkie, that's what I hoped it was!

OL, I think I like my big peaceful bed too much! But thanks.

We have been sitting outside, drinking wine and chatting, but now it's too cold and the mozzies are about.

Can't come on Friday, even with a Tardis. Will have 6 adults and 7 grandchildren staying for Son No 2's baby's christening on Sunday.

Evening all. No beer for me thanks. Put on 3lbs in 6 days in Yorkshire, drank a lot of Theakstons. No cream or cake either, had salad for lunch and salad for supper.  

Talking of funerals, as you were, in France they like them to be within 3 days, have to ask permission for 5 days.

Glad you enjoyed the carfest OL.

Forgot to tell you. Saw a beautiful yellow and green grass snake yesterday, sunning itself on the terrace. It was afraid of me. Good thing as I was afraid of it! Dove's Hissing Sid reminded me.

Pernission to speak SIR!
