Dove - love the clematis Alpina - they are so dainty.  Do they have a second flush of flowers later in the year?

Mine do, if I don't prune them after flowering, which I don't.  

Interesting article here http://www.rhs.org.uk/getattachment/f1da3297-da04-4e0d-8376-34c9d1953950/Clematis-alpina-and-C--macropetala.aspx 

I want all of them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Raspberries in a greenhouse?

Posted: 22/04/2014 at 20:02

Hi Staceyj

I think it'd be too warm for them in a greenhouse - raspberries do best in cooler moister areas, which is why they do well in Scotland. 

What about visiting a second hand or charity shop and buying some old net curtains - when the fruits have formed and before they ripen, drape the curtains over like a wedding veil - that'll keep those pesky blackbirds off

Check the stems - snails climb up them at night and strip the bark off them, killing individual branches - go out there at night with a torch and nab them

I've heard reports that blackbirds will take them from the edges of ponds - any blackbird activity around there?

On the sofa, stuffed with a pasta thingy made with leftover-chicken and some Swiss chard from the garden.  The sky is brightening in the west and the blackbird is singing from the rooftop.

Don't know why my post took up all that space 

KEF, if you can find a place for Pamela J with the light behind it,  so that you look up into it, it looks wonderful

Thanks Fidget 

And I'd forgotten about Lathyrus Vernus - perfect for the edge of the Little Wilderness - if I remember correctly bees love it?
