Good morning all  

It got down to 6C overnight and Hefty hasn't eaten his supper - that's the first time he's missed it this year - looks like he knows British Winter Time has started.

Another coffee for me please KEF

Protecting a planter over winter

I've got a roll of chicken wire cut into sections - I use these to put over the raised beds when they're empty and after I've sown seeds in there to keep the neighbour's cat off.

Garden  Centres seem to have them potted up rather than in bundles as we used to get them from the greengrocers.  If you know of any fruit and veg markets you may find some there.

To prune or not to prune

There was a small Russian Vine in the garden of a house we bought in Suffolk - before we moved in it had pulled the downpipe and gurrering down

There's one growing over a hedge alongside a major Norfolk road - itlooks fantastic and is wonderful cover for nesting birds ........ it now covers approximately 1/8 mile  from one end to the other!!!
