Weird, clothes shopping on Sunday. In France shops are shut on Sundays, except the odd small supermarket in the morning. GCs are open (some) but shut for lunch.

12 for lunch today, all gone now, dishwasher on. Now feel knackered, it would have been a good gardening day, 14° sun and cloud.

What's the weather like in your area?

Turned out quite nice, 14°.

Clematis is hardy so it should be fine.

Growing Garlic

jon cob, I have friends who grow garlic very successfully but they don't do this forum, so I gave their advice as I don't grow it as I'm not that keen on it.

That was one of the nice things about Geoff Hamilton, he showed how to make things on a low budget for the ordinary gardener.

I asked Bunny her name some time ago and told her I was Liz because she called me "Busy". She didn't respond then, but she doesn't call me Busy any more!

Goodnight all. Bedtime. (In this case it's a night hat, not Father Christmas.)

bindweed, alder, buttercups, ivy

I once used weedkiller for paddocks from a farm suppliers. I had to leave the horses off for a minimum of 2 weeks. However, it killed wildflowers as well and the buttercups were more resistant, so I stopped using it. Buttercups are mildly toxic to horses, but they don't eat them. They will be worse in a wet year and not so bad in a dry year.

Summer flowering evergreen Clematis

It looks like honeysuckle to me too. Clematis Armandii has longer leaves.
