All you can do is wait and see - to be honest I fear the worst but hope that I'm wrong.

Hi Sal Hall 

When you say that it's not produced anything and that you're trying to encourage it to sprout, do you mean that it's not even produced any leaves this year?

Oh, can I sing Plastic Man while I do it? Love Ray Davies. Sorry, old, old.

I'm also a big Ray Davies fan - big pics on my bedroom wall when I was a teenager - then in my 40s when I was working for a bit music festival, I met actually met him and drank champagne with him (along with some colleagues)

Decision made - I shall forgo the thrill of the bus ride and drive into the city and pay for a car park - soddit - that way I shan't have to walk through the city centre in the heat and wait at a bus stop in the full sun.  

I've pulled the BBQ out of the garage and set it up in the back garden for later on and watered all the pots

Do you remember I said that my Clematis cirrhosa Freckles is flowering?  Well, it's also absolutely covered in black aphids - the birds keep the aphids down in the back garden, but until this year there's been nothing but lawn at the front so the birds haven't been interested so I've just given the aphids a squirt  with organic soapy stuff - that should sort them out.
