No GW tonight?

Personally the BBC treats gardeners, of which we are numerous and snooker fans who are more than likely less numerous, as fools. They devote little time to the one sector of the economy which has grown even in the worst years of the recession. However there seems little point in complaining as the BBC doesn't listen and never has as far as gardeners are concerned. They are cutting back BBC3, so why not move the snooker there instead. This subject has been raised before and is ignored, so we'd better get used to being treated as second class licence payers.

Mine is in an exposed position against a south facing fence(westerly winds) next to a Leylandii hedge. It's 5ft tall and doing well, No frost damage from last winter and it's dead easy to propagate. I take a few cuttings every year, so it's pretty tough here in Mid Wales.

One looks like Beech, the one in leaf, the other is grape.

Whats wrong

I can see they're inside are they in direct sunlight and did you water from above. If you did it's scorching of the leaves. Water from underneath in future.

Mine grows in part shade and it's fine. I love the pruning's, it keeps cats off my raised beds and nursery beds.

Well it's hardy down to about minus 10 and lower so I wouldn't worry too much. It will recover.

Frost damage?  We've had a few sharp frosts recently, depending on where you are.

Spring Bulbs in Pots

You can leave them in the pots, but they need a good feed to keep them going Penny. A handful of FBB well watered in will help.
