grape or currant

Starting from the original post - whatever it is, it's not a currant - are we all agreed about that?

Just wanted to share :)

It might be fun to grow the vine as a climber for it's foliage, but unless you know the variety  it'll be difficult to know what conditions it needs to produce grapes - some are much better inside. 

The beech/lime or whatever tree it is will be a big tree - do you want a big tree? If you do then plant it, if you don't then chop it up and compost it.

Good morning, 

Dove hope that coffee does the trick.   ...

A bacon sarnie is helping

It's a very very long time since I've been out and not had to drive back, so I'm obviously out of practice

Sorry to hear about the pink jods - what a PITA - get some Dylon Dye Remover to keep in the cupboard for the future, just in case

There are types of persicaria which are garden plants, however I'm pretty sure the one you have is the one usually regarded as a weed.  It's often found on arable land and gardens.

Just in case its name worries you, although it is related, it is not Japanese Knotweed and there is no need to panic
