Thanks for the miscanthus advice verdun - i shall try and find space in the GH.  The variety is Professor Richard Hansen - reddy plumes to start with, but golden now.

Not sure what happened there - that was last night's post. Must be in some sort of time warp!

Yum yum - thanks. Surreptitiously tapping on my phone whilst waiting for ceremonies to start. Sure the teachers won't notice !!

Verdun - now that you have your mind on grasses - i have three miscanthus types in pots bought in the summer. Am i too late to plant them now? Or should i just sink the pots in the ground, or should i keep in GH??? Many thanks

Christmas pudding made and (v important) stirred.  Lots of wishes made.  All ready for 8 hours steaming tomorrow.

Fruit for Christmas cake also soaking.  Kitchen smells all Christmassy !!  Know I'm not allowed to use the C** word yet - but given that I am doing genuine Christmas baking, I feel that I should have special dispensation for this weekend only.

Andy - so sorry to hear you have been in the wars. Really hope they can sort out whatever it is - in the meantime take it easy - its perfect weathet for armchair gardening

I have a day of errands today, then some garden tidying up tomorrow.

Sad to say goodbye to Monty yesterday - i always enjoy GW on a Friday evening.  And its reminded me to get out there and take some viburnum opulus cuttings

Lol Gilly - if you'd known the photo plane was hovering you could have given them a wave !

Sounds like a good start has been made on that hedge Fairy.

Did you make a technology decision V ? Remember it needs to be something with a lens - you promised us pics
