You probably had 'own brand' beans back in the uni days Ladybird - they had less sugar - think they had fewer beans too

Dd, if you're really short of things to do, you could put the kettle on ............. I'm sure several of us could do with another mug of something ............ failing that you could put your feet up

 I remembered there was a load of washing in the machine waiting to be hung out, so I'm up now and the washing is on the line.  The goldfinches are singing beautifully today and the sun is beginning to burn off the slight hazy cloud.

Think I'd better pop up to the farm shop today and get some food ... I could also pop into the GC and see what they're tempting me with ........ they're having a huge building project and the place is in semi-chaos, so there might be some good plants in the 'nearly dead' section 

I need some lawn seed too ...

I like Purple Cherokee, but it's probably larger than you want. 

What is this?

That's the problem - they wait until it gets warm before the seeds in the compost germinate - then it starts to get cooler again so the peg out. Flipping tropical types eh!?

Clematis Wilt

Posted: 31/08/2016 at 20:01

I think it's more likely to have been snail damage - they strip the bark from new growth which then wilts.

When I had clematis that could get at in the evening, I used to go out in the evening with a torch and pick off hundreds of snails, large and small.  Now most of my clematis are on a high fence above the Shady Bank, I daren't go clambering about up there in the dark - but those clematis are Alpina types, and tough as old boots.
