On a vine that young you need to reduce the number of bunches you allow it to grow to one per branch, as well as thin the grapes.

Hello folks - we're home

Some fog on the Fenland part of the journey, but dear Lola has brilliant fog lights  so as long as we took it steadily we were ok.  Most people were driving well, apart from an idiot in a black Audi with a number plate 'adjusted' to read JERK U !!!  At least he was warning everyone that he was a complete ****er!!!

Fifty tulip bulbs arrived while we were away so as soon as the weather improves this week I'll be planting some of them in the front garden amongst the wallflowers - the rest are for Wonky.  Glad she and her lovely hub had a good weekend with their friends

Hope all the sick and injured had a good weekend and are well on the road to recovery!

OH has unloaded the car and now the house is warming up and a takeaway has been ordered and is on its way

Just had a phone chat with Wonky - she sends ((hugs)) to all, especially Chicky - glad OH is home

Wonky and her lovely hub have a friend down from Liverpool for the weekend, and are having a bit of a gathering to 'warm the new flat' so she's not got time to post at the moment.  I've told her I'll pass on her best wishes to you all.

Hosta - that sounds brilliant for OH

Now I'm going to have a doze, as I'll be driving late this evening.

If this is the Parrot Plant you're talking about, it needs to be indoors in a bright warm place for the winter.  Lots of info here

I do most of my tidying up in the early spring - as you say, the wildlife need somewhere to spend the winter.  Fungi are useful - they break down organic matter and incorporate it into the soil.  Not a problem
