You grow them in the same way as summer fruiting raspberries, so you cut the old canes down and tie in the new ones each year, which keeps them more or less under control.

  Think most jobs at the BBC are handed out here

It's where tv execs seem to spend most of their time  ..... either there or here    - you can't cross the street without having to dodge a Bentley with a BBC number plate.

I'm wondering if you've inadvertently used contaminated manure

I know it affects delphiniums badly - I don't know whether it affects gladioli.

Does anyone else know?

DavidK - I had no idea!  I've just read your post ... MS is a bu$$er of a condition - I'm so glad you've found ways to continue with your gardening.  ((hugs))

I don't mind a proper weather forecast - but I hate the way the media spreads alarm and despondency about everything
