I've had a look at the label on mine (had forgotten it's name!) and it looks the same as yours - Jasminum polyanthum.

Jasminum sambac is the one usually used for tea. Have a look on Google. Yours looks like the one often grown as a house plant, but sorry, I don't know about tea.

Pruning a grape

Posted: 04/02/2015 at 09:43

It's not too late. It's been a cold winter and grapes should be pruned before the sap rises or they will bleed sap. That usually happens from March, so early February should still be OK. The best time, though is December.

I found this site helpful as it takes you from the beginning with a young vine.

That is a variety of Papaver somniferum, the opium poppy, an annual. Patty's Plum is an oriental poppy with much more divided leaves and perennial.

I may have some DD, if they come up I'll dig some up for you. May need carrot cake though!

HELLO FORKERS!

Were you asking DD? Love carrot cake, please. But if it snows or is too icy we'll have to postpone. OH's choir was cancelled tonight because of risk of snow, but it hasn't snowed.

What's on your wishlist?

Local Leclerc Hypermarket had one of my wishlist this morning! Hydrangea Vanille Fraise. Didn't fall into the trolley, it was lowered carefully and smiled at.

HELLO FORKERS!

Went to hypermarket, followed by lunch at the Wok place (cheap Chinese buffet with friendly waitress). Amazing, hypermarket had one of my plant wishes for this year, Hydrangea Vanille Fraise, hope it's alive, just bare branches at the moment.
