Hand him over to your mum, then when he's fit and happy again you can take some cuttings and grow them in pots on your balcony.  They'll be fine in pots for a few years, then when they outgrow their pots you can repeat the process and your mum will have a hydrangea forest

How are you pruning the vine?

Do you reduce the number of bunches and then thin the grapes themselves?

I feel really aggrieved that a soldier who had two legs and an arm blown off had to go to Australia and pay £90,000 to get prosthetic legs. I think that anyone in his position should get what it takes to give him some semblance  of a reasonable life, without having to fork out for it himself.

I  had a live tree one Christmas. Kept it alive all year, brought it indoors the following Christmas, decorated it, put presents underneath, went to bed. Got up the next morning - disaster!

Don't keep us in suspenders LG .......... what had happened???

Whereabouts are you llama2 - December is very late for a grapevine to still be covered in leaves here in the UK.

Good morning all  and G'day to Pat   

Edd, I also did Latin at school and agree with Pat, your OH deserves to be spoilt - she has to put up with you, and then she has to put up without you, then she has to put up with you again. 

Fidget - no sympathy - you could have shared it with us
