Glad you escaped AJK - will be great to have a new GH ready for the winter.

Seems there are several trees down across roads around here - OH just took a very circuitous route to work.  Luckily no-one hurt here - others have had it worse.  Terrible thing wind - scares me silly.

Nut - if you see Dove this morning give her big hugs from me !

They say it is best to leave it alone - only start watering when you see green shoots in spring.  However, this is for an unheated GH - not sure about a conservatory, which would be warmer and drier.

CG - couldn't find any bendy straws !!

Hi Fairy - think it should be fixable (haven't ventured out to check !) - but it looks like it came down in one piece so to speak.  It was also a piece that I have yet to clothe in clematis, so no plant damage done.  Biggest problem is that now the deer can get into the cage.  Speedy repairs will be needed to stop them !

Any damage?

Lost one panel of trellis here in Surrey - but not out of the woods yet !

Morning - not going out in that, so working from home! 

So far have lost one panel of trellis, but can't see any other damage - trees are still standing.  However, seems we have more to come - will be fingers crossed here til about midday
