Good morning all 

OH has been at work over an hour, the washing is in the machine and I'm writing a shopping list ... I'll dash down to W'rose early and come back to do a quick tidy, water any needy plants, prep supper and get myself ready to sit on the sofa in front of Wimbledon .......

Son is busy at Latitude ... seems the weather is being kind to them, thank goodness 

Wonky phoned last night ... she has new wrist splints for her carpel tunnel and if I understood her correctly she has a chit so that she can book herself in for steroid injections if needed.

... For the benefit of all growers.  As soon as a plant produces top growth of four to six leaves, check the PH of the soil,  if a nitrogen lack is here, try a sprnkling of sulphate of amonia around the plant.  I est my case.

See original post

 For the benefit of those who are not 'scientifically qualified'    a PH test will not reveal a lack of nitrogen ... you need kit specific to nitrogen testing (also for potassium, potash etc)  ... there are kits and equipment at a wide range of prices, from the cheap and cheerful on Amazon to equipment for the professional costing hundreds of pounds .

Campsis that has never flowered

I find they do best on a sunny wall ... how much sun is it getting?  

Mine is also pretty hungry ... it gets tomato food through the summer.
