This may be helpful - I think the information applies to most horticultural shows

Good luck

Why hasnt my respberry bush flowered

You haven't killed it.

If it's a summer fruiting variety (which is what it sounds like) just tie the canes to a support so they don't whip about in the winter winds, and they'l fruit for you next year. 

Next spring/summer they'll also grow some new canes - when the older canes have fruited you cut them down, leaving the new ones which you tie in to the supports. 

You'll be able to tell the difference as the older canes are a darker colour and will also have the remains of where the fruits where.

Thank you all!  Especially Kleipieper (it was Monty Don's video and I've emailed as suggested), Dovefromabove and Katie.  I sometimes think I'm the only deaf person in the world - most just go inside and close the door.  Does the BBC think the B for British refers to themselves or their customers?

Definitely not the only deaf person in the world - I have family members who have a hereditary hearing problem which has been very severe for some of them.  It it does no harm to keep reminding people of the ways the world could be made more accessible.

As for the BBC,  unless the UK government changes things, the B probably refers primarily to the licence-payers who fund them, so not sure what you mean

Good morning all

Panda has a job interview today - fingers are very crossed

Wet here - I can hear the water butts filling up

We may get a flying visit from son some time today, as he's doing valuations in the area ... it'll be nice to see him, but it depends how busy he is ...

Chicky, thanks for the clarification - I seem to have been doing it more or less right   I quickly worked out that pedalling backwards was no longer needed

Amazing sunset this evening

Must be nearly my bedtime   See you in the morning folks ...................
