My OH says thanks for the link David. He says he only watches Strictly for Darcy Bussell!

Wisteria or not?

Are you planning to grow it in a pot then? Some clematis are good in pots, but others, like the vigorous Montana, don't like being in pots, not a long enough root run. If you had smaller clematis you could have 2 pots, one on each side. They can take a year or two to get going though. Make sure it's one that likes sun. There are so many clematis varieties. This site tells you all about them.  

Rose leaves are curled/wrinkled

Morning all.

Sorry to hear you've been poorly KEF. Was starting to wonder where you were, but I haven't posted since yesterday morning. Cold took a turn for the worse yesterday and now OH has caught it. We were both sniffling and coughing at 4am.

Morning all.

Glad Yvie's OH's final op went well.

Was feeling better from my sinusitis yesterday, but now seems to have turned into a horrid bunged up cold and cough. Woke OH up in the early hours with it.

Any tips for growing rice?

Edd, aquilegias are hardy, but when they are still babies I give them some protection by putting them in a coldframe until spring, or, if you don't have a cold frame, against the wall of the house, but not in full sun.

Dove, glad you had a good day. We walked past Jamie's Italian but OH preferred the menu in the Café Rouge, French food. Thanks for the horsey link, not that far from our cottage.
