I did acro branching with my daughter and friends a few years ago. I was absolutely terrified. There were 10 levels of difficulty. I only managed the first 2!

Now preparing for charity BBQ here on Sunday. Went shopping for it this morning. Lots of clearing up, cleaning and preparation to do. Place is a tip!

Thanks Hosta. Have now read back Wonky's posts. So she's moving in 2 ways!

Well done Wonky!

Morning all. Got back from son's (helping with house move and 2 little granddaughters) yesterday.

New house, lovely, mix of old farmhouse and barn conversion, but still lots of work to do on it, 5 hours drive away. 3 hours country  roads, got fed up with following queues of caravans and camping cars, 2 hours motorway. Car has got noisy, think exhaust needs looking at, going to garage soon.

Haven't read back yet, except this page. Is Wonky moving? I hope Pat is OK.

Lily P, Matty is OK, but has been busy and her new rescue dog has been a bit of a handful because of her nerves, but is settling down now.

Honeysuckle - Grow It Thick And Bushy on Wires Only??

Thick long branches won't work as cuttings. You need small thin pieces of new growth with a growing tip on them, cut just below a leaf node. Don't feed until after they have taken. It may work just by putting the shoots in a glass of water. Then pot into compost when roots appear.

Bit fed up but always a silver lining......

I have a large garden in France and grow lots of roses and flowers and vegetables. There are lots of fields round here full of sunflowers which are so pretty when they are out, their yellow heads follow the sun, but they don't last very long.

In the house I grew up in the grapevines were planted in the cold frames outside, the trunk passed through into the greenhouse (it was actually a conservatory) so that the grapes were in the warmth to ripen.
