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.

Lesley Garret has a lovely voice and she's slim and pretty too. Julie Walters is a really well known actress in England.

Have just had a heavy shower. Waiting for son to ring to say whether he wants me today or tomorrow for the next stage of housemoving, granny duties.

Why don't you buy a secondhand book, or a cheap one from Amazon, about gardening? Then you will be fore-armed with knowledge for next year.

The reason ivy pops up in my garden where I don't want it is because I live in a woodland clearing and ivy grows in the woods. The birds eat the berries and drop the seeds in my garden.

Not eating much this evening. The family were here for lunch, had BBQ pork in honey marinade, various salads, chips, then bread and cheese (French have cheese before pud) then lemon meringue pie that I made and chocolate mousse that daughter made.

On the top of this page is a place that says "search this site" with a magnifying glass sign. Type in "birthday", click on the sign and it will take you to a search page. I think it's "It's my birthday".

Found it http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/talkback/its-my-birthday/455545-42.html  but saw you'd already found it.

Try feeding it in the spring and watering when the weather is dry, it may flower. Will need pruning too. They often don't flower for several years when young.
