We head for Cornwall  at the beginning of June or the beginning of September 

I remember pony-trekking on Dartmoor at the end of July .......... I've never been so wet 

Why don't they grow?

That's why you've got lush green grass and don't have to  top your lake up ... over here we had brown lawns until recently and brother's reservoirs were getting low ... 

Transplanting Grapes

Why were they being ripped out?  Are they diseased?  Are they not producing well for some reason?

Farmers don't often rip out a productive plant.

I think cuttings would be a better bet ... those are large vines to transplant at this time of year with a dry summer ahead, but check first that they're not diseased. 

Plant ID Please

Raisingirl ... we book a week of good weather in Cornwall when we book our holiday home (there's a box you can tick but you have to know where it is) .... we've been doing it for years and years .......... we've never had a bad week yet  ........ usually what's happening on the north coast is different to what's happening on the south, and what's happening inland is different again ... so we can just seek out the weather that suits ....

Couldn't afford to get a train down to you even if there was one Hosta ... have you seen the price of tickets???

At least you have a motorway pointing vaguely towards you ... we have one of the largest port complexes in Europe and not one motorway in East Anglia ...
