So did the rest of us Panda 

Full English with or without mushrooms/black pudding is ready, one egg or two folks.

Full veggie English also ready

If you want dippy eggs, how do you want them and how many?

Who wants scrambled eggs on toast with chives?

Pancakes and maple syrup anyone?

Juices available and more coffee anyone?

tomato plants in containers all going pale

Yes, I'd cut back hard in the late autumn and then move.  Of course I know that you'll prepare the new site well and use some of the mycorrhizal powder on the roots

Yes, they don't need warmth - roses and foxgloves both into a shady corner now - perhaps with something over the top of the foxgloves for when the snow comes if it comes, but open at the sides.  They don't need protection from the cold, but something over the top would prevent them from getting waterlogged.  the foxgloves will disappear over the winter so don't panic

I'd go for it - they'll either strike for you or they won't, and if they don't I'd assume your 'permission' carries forward to next year and you can have another go 

Staking standard fuchsias and the like

I see.  It is harder to get the 'trunk' close to the cane that way

I don't disturb rose cuttings for about 12 months - I just leave them outside in a shady corner and look for new growth the following spring/summer.

Good morning KEF 

Bright sunshine and white fluffies here now but strong gusty wind and heavy rain overnight - had to get up to shut the big windows about 3am, some pots blown over outside have been straightened up now.  At least the butts are full and the lawns have been watered.

We're going to make a definite decision on tomorrow's Beth Chatto trip this afternoon - forecast is for heavy rain ................
