Not especially - I think he's a great performer and has recorded some great songs (although age is catching up with him now) but I wouldn't say I'm a real fan.

Do feel free to join in with the chatter on Hello Forkers thread if you're at a loose end now that gardening weather is getting scarce

Well, if you can't move it I'd mulch the roots with some more bark chippings, and when frost is forecast I'd try to protect the top growth with a couple of layers of garden fleece.  I find securing it with clothes pegs works quite well as long as it's not too windy - then it's not too onerous taking the fleece off in good weather and putting it back  in bad.  I'd also wrap some fleece around the crown.  Then if we do get some really cold weather, if the top growth is cut back it may grow again from the crown. 

I'll keep my fingers crossed for your jasmine if you keep yours crossed for my Campsis radicans, in a big terracotta pot in a southeast facing corner of the terrace 

Memo to self:  must remember to bubble wrap the big pots!

Hey folks - is anyone else having trouble with the two threads started by Angela17?  When I click on them I just get a run time error message and get thrown off the site, but I see two people have posted on them

Wonder how Hosta's got on with the Ortho chappie/chap-ess ?

David - my Kaspersky anti-virus is perfectly happy with GW - but if you think there's a problem contact the web team and ask them to get someone to look into it

website@gardenersworld.com

There are a couple of new threads which, when I click on them, take me to an error page - maybe that's something to do with it?

It's a bit of a chicken and egg situation Nut -  maybe one day a wandering Hefty will come across your leaf piles and make himself at home

I hung two loads of washing out, but they didn't really get any drier - they're in now and on the clothes horse in front of the radiator in the study now. 

Now the heating's on and I'm going to put my feet up with a mug of coffee for a bit.
