OL, (and anyone who may have read my take on 'pinching-out' cues) I've spotted a possible flaw in what I said/meant, upthread.

Train your cucumber plant to the top of its support, then remove the growing tip. This will result in the plant producing these lateral shoots....it's  then that you pinch these out as described previously.

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you, Lyn.....yes, 'Femspot' would be my recommendation. Prolific & easy peasy to grow.

Unfortunately, Ms. Jekyll has shown no sings of improvement. I contacted David Austin who have kindly offered to send a replacement which I have accepted. Now just awaiting confirmation as to when I should expect it 

Ah, great news...better luck next time.

Hi David!! Of course you didn't !!  No need for an apology at all; I've been out all day and just got in. And while I was out I was looking at (more) roses!! But, I had no impulse to buy because the next lot will be bare root ones

Good to know, Bev.....I'm rarely serious in my posts (maybe sometimes) and other posters seem to know when to take me serious.

Brakes on the rose buying, eh?

Update on GJ?
