Thanks Verd - might try and get the pinched shoots to root - I'm getting close to creating a drift

Morning all

Really enjoyed Monty Very entertaining but interesting too.  Think OH enjoyed it too. 

And now, after that little bit of midweek gardening excitement ......its back to the grindstone

Morning peeps.  Glad you popped in OL - a compost scoop is a wonderful thing (and I mean that sincerely).

out to see Monty Don tonight  - finally got tickets for a theatre near me (thanks to Topbird and Lily for alerting me to the possibility).  I guess it might have been made possible by the snooker bumping GW off the schedules this Friday .....they say every cloud has a silver lining

Just Googled MrsG - you are absolutely right to call her Pamela.  But she seems to respond better when she gets called Barbara ......maybe try that next year, along with the BFB

Oh MrsG, you have just made me laugh out loud (a true lol).  

Not a Babs Jackman expert, but perhaps you could try some clematis food to help her along for next year? or maybe she is sulking because you keep calling her Pam

It's my birthday
