Problem is it's the weekend and hopefully Daniel's got his feet up at home or is out clubbing somewhere or doing something useful like putting up a shelf.

Have a look at your Forum Settings Stacey - make sure you've selected the Advanced Edit option - that should make your toolbar appear

It's not just the getting there - it's the getting home again afterwards that might be tricky for some if the roads flood

Glad you got things sorted Verdun   Battoning down the hatches here too - we've actually decided to postpone our trip to Beth Chatto's garden which we had arranged for tomorrow - the forecast for that area speaks of thunder, lightening and torrential rain - we're foolhardy but not as foolhardy as all that .... and anyway, isn't that garden designed for drought - seems a bit silly looking at it in the pouring rain   We'll arrange it again in a few weeks' time

Leave it till spring Bille-jean, it flowers on new growth so leave till then.

Lonicera periclymenum varieties flower on wood produced in the previous year so should be pruned immediately after flowering
