Good idea - I use a mix of 3 parts John Innes No 3 loam-based compost to 1 part horticultural grit.

 

Have you got yours yet?

A friend is planning a trip to France to stock up on booze before we leave the EU and Import Duty goes back on wine that she brings in from her trips to the continent. 

At the rate she and her OH consume it, she'd better plan a few more trips between now and then   She's voting out, by the way.

Mine pushes the lid off itself.

How to save and move old fruit bushes

Oooh Tetley - nylon knickers!!!  thank goodness we're no longer wearing undies made from the by-products of the petro-chemical industry.

An interesting run-down here of the decline of the UK textile industry http://www.bbc.co.uk/nationonfilm/topics/textiles/background_decline.shtml

Can't blame the EU for that one. 

 

On another note, it does seem strange to me that I keep coming across people who seem to be deciding on their vote on party lines  i.e. Vote out to kick the Tory government in the teeth

The thing is, the Labour Party have always supported Britain remaining in the EU. 

Non flowering Honeysuckle

I don't do a routine pruning - only cut back the long reaching tendrils when there's no where for them to go. 

At this time of year a good dose of Fish, Blood and Bone will help, and has been said plenty of water in the summer.
