Mrs G - so pleased undergardener is doing well

KEF - on your new plants ( LOVE caryopteris btw) i wouldn't pot on - roots are not doing much at this time of year.  I would keep in GH though, so the frost doesn't get to the roots.  If i didn't have a GH i would sink the pots in the ground.  Not sure what others think .....

He's home !  It is a Sudmo one with a Honda engine.  He's very pleased with it - but says anything with a Honda engine would probably be good.  I thought he had got it from Screwfix, but he ended up with an online company - something like Generators UK.

Energy self sufficiency - thats the way to go !!

Someone had thrown themselves under a train at Wimbledon, so everything out of Waterloo was a complete mess.  I try not to get too angry, because it is such a tragic situation, and in the grand scheme of things a long journey home pales into insignificance. Sobering really.

Home at last !  Thanks for the chocolate, might just have snapped without it

KEF - I've split up the posts for you, so now we can hear about your day and your new plants (especially your new plants)

Dove - the wonderful thing is that it doesn't matter - you can go tomorrow instead- or even Friday if it takes your fancy!

Trouble on trains - taken me 4 hours to do a 45 min journey - and still a long way from home
