Can someone explain why there are 2 new threads now please. Thanks Dovefromabove for the link. I see one thread is in Plants and the other is in The Potting Shed.

I think the Potting Shed thread is just discussing a new seedswap thread in theory.

The Seed and Plant Swap 2015 in the Plant Forum is actually doing it in practice

Perhaps a bit confusing, but if the Practice overtakes the Theory it'll all work out

I planted a Clem. cirrhosa 'Freckles' early last summer and it's blooming beautifully - probably because it's near other clematis and they all had generous dollops of clematis fertiliser throughout the summer.  They're such greedy feeders so they do need plenty of nutrition and if yours was planted in the autumn it wouldn't have had time to make the most of the good conditions I'm sure you've given it - it's obviously concentrated on growing  I'm sure it'll be amazing in 12 months' time

Positive thoughts and silly things for the tough times

Good morning all

My OH has a bike - so he can always squeeze past my car - although sometimes the mirrors get bent back

Waitrose have long term relationships with all their farmer / suppliers and have strict animal welfare rules which must be adhered too. 



..not so strict that all their meat, apart from Organic Welsh Lamb, and probably pork, is slaughtered according to halal/kosher principles...  because it's cheaper...


All the meat sold under the Waitrose label is stunned before slaughter.
