Mrs. Garden  I usually find my secateurs in winter when the beds are bare! I have 4 pairs, 2 are missing at the moment  Of course, it could be OH!

I'll confirm that honeysuckle can be cut hard back. Trouble is, I don't always get round to it then there is a messy load of dead black twigs in the middle.

I know it's morning, but just want to say that Dove has put the perfect avator for Verdun on Morning Forkers, so go and have a look.

That's right, Boss Hogg didn't have a dog, but Rosco Coltrane owned Flash.

I have a Vitex agnus castus on a South facing wall, so it is sheltered. It is in fact frost hardy, but may need winter protection. Though I don't protect mine and it's stayed alive through the cold Dordogne winters, up to -17°. It's lovely.

onions

Round shallots are what I use. I buy sets in Spring, but actually I haven't bought any for a bit as they keep so well I just plant some I grew the year before. That doesn't work with onions, only shallots.

I thought "oooh goody, it's like a quiz", but Fidgetbones has given all the answers I would have given.

Welcome back, Punkdoc.

Got loads of bulbs to plant so thought I'd try a bulb planter, of course one can't expect a long handled one from a French GC. I'll be on my mat tomorrow.

It's just occured to me that Verdun never used smileys once upon a time. One day he may even have a picture on his avator. 

What's the star in your garden right now

But isn't your garden next to your house, Verdun? That's not far to take a camera!

When you have over an acre of garden and a lot of compost, how do you sterilise it? I would really like to know.
