It sounds as if some new growth has been damaged by frost.  I would leave it alone for now ... if it's not recovered by next summer it will be time to replace it.

Hello folks ... we're back from out trip to the city ... Black Thursday apparently  

I have a stylish new hairdo ... very now ... short at the sides (very short) and longer on top   
I also have some comfy new sort of slipper/shoes from Hotter ... gJ7TfD_BwE 25% reduction 'cos of Black Thursday  Three new paperbacks from Waterstones 'cos I couldn't resist them  and a gorgeous warm scarf/shawl sort of a thing from Accessorize (sort of navy paisley with a bit of silver thread). 

OH is cooking supper and I'm on the sofa snuggled into my new shawl with a G&T and listening to Abba and we've just had a text from our beloved niece saying that she's got an A* in her Physics pre Mock (whoever heard of 'pre Mocks???)   

It's been a lovely day ... I raised a glass to you Pdoc and there's a G&T here for you whenever you want  ((hugs))

Morning BL 

Just a bit snuffly and sneezy really ... it hasn't really 'developed'. 

It's this gallery ... it's part of the art school and shows all sorts of international artists ... absolutely wonderful 

HELP! My Petra Croton is dying :/

Hi   This is a UK based forum with a few members in NW Europe and a few other places so we have little knowledge of whether your croton would be better outside or not.

This website gives some pretty comprehensive advice 

Good luck

Hmmm ... the best laid plans etc ...... the gallery doesn't open until the afternoon and that's when I've got my appointments ... we'll catch the 11 o'clock bus instead of the 10 o'clock and pop to The Lamb Inn for an early lunch then I'll get my specs and have my hair cut OH goes to the bicycle shop ... we'll go to the exhibition one afternoon next week ......
