Someone's done that to my tallest sunflower - it didn't climb up from the ground 'cos I'd surrounded it with coarse sand - it climbed down from the pear tree

Can you tell us about your tree, where you're growing it and how?  Maybe post a picture or two.

Good morning all   The weather gods are filling the water butts   That's great as long as they've finished filling them by tomorrow - the Under Gardener has two raised beds to assemble!!!

Welcome to the newbies   I'm the one who's 26 'cos I'm counting backwards   

Don't worry about trying to keep up - sometimes it's possible and sometimes it's not - just join in - you don't have to comment on everything that's gone on, although you can if you want to ( if you can remember it after you've read it 

We're off to the theatre this evening to see  which is being performed as part of the Norfolk & Norwich Festival - very excited   Hope I stay awake
