I see. Why someone would go the bother of creating a fake account on a gardening forum is beyond me. Some people are very strange.

Wolf3 is a Wind Up Merchant making posts that he thinks are funny ... take no notice of him Overgrowth - he's trying to cause trouble ... it's not clever and it's not funny, just tedious  ... the Mods will deal with him when they're in the office.  In the meantime most people are ignoring him

If you want them for jam they're better slightly under-ripe.

Wine sounds good. I love wine but it doesn't love me - I become very flushed after just half a glass which is a bit embarrassing. I struggle through though! 



 My Aunty Rach met that struggle head on for years.. and my uncle helped her ... they were determined to get the hang of it ... they moved to the South of France in an effort to increase their opportunities ... they moved back here eventually ... think the French locals were worried that there'd be none left for them

Aphids ... wash them off with a squirt of water from the hose.  


They suck sap from the plant so weaken it a bit, but they won't do you any harm if you accidentally eat some.


No flowers on my clematis Montana

Oh dear ... you've been pruning off the growth that would produce the flowers in the following year.  


Prune (if needed) in early summer, straight after flowering .... and this year don't prune at all and give it a dose of Clematis food in Feb/March.  


Let us know what happens next year
