IT'S MY BIRTHDAY....PART TWO

Posted: 29/12/2016 at 10:08

Shame about your birthday, Chrissy, but at least MIL is OK. I hope today turns out better than you expect and you manage to have a happy birthday after all.

Lovely photos, Hosta, I would rather be there than in 30°, but I hope you have a good holiday.


Slept better last night, it's just a cold. But a couple of years ago I had bronchitis 3 times following colds.


Crisp and clear here -6°.


Lily P, no particular news about grandbabies, both are due in May. But Son 1's will be a girl and Son 2 doesn't want to know. Both DILs are feeling fine now morning sickness has passed. Son 1 already has 2 girls and Son 2 has 2 boys. I hope your families are all well.

I've just been catching up with dreaded HW too, hoovered all the downstairs, but now I feel exhausted so doing as you said Clarice, having one of those cold cure drinks with paracetamol and de-congestant.

I will only be planting my last 2 bags of tulips. Then looking at catalogues and waiting for the snowdrops. Unless the weather is gorgeous in January it's my time off from the garden month.

how to support 24 climbers in small garden?

Your photo hadn't come up when I posted. That looks lovely, but I expect it's expensive.


Good point from B3. Also there are 3 pruning groups of clematis. Some need hard pruning and some need hardly any, so don't get them muddled up. They are hungry and thirsty too so will need feeding and watering when in growth.

Is the fence strong enough to support wires for the clematis instead of heavier trellis? You could bang in posts at intervals and put wire or trellis between them. Obelisks are fine, but vary a lot in height and price. You could make wigwams, such as for runner beans, but metal canes covered in green plastic last longer in the ground than bamboo.
