Morning Verdun

I've seen it do well in pretty shady conditions, and the RHS seem to think it'll be fine in "deep or partial shade"

They won't be doing that - is it because the shoot is white that it looks like a root?

KEF, it's mainly his big 'electric chair' and some pictures off his walls - that sort of thing - think Bro will bring the pony trailer.

By the way, can anyone find the Birthday Thread?  I've been seaching and can't find it   I think OL has a Big Day Today doesn't she???

Oooh yes please GBoy - that'd be lovely - I'll make the coffee

Good morning all - bright blue skies and sunshine and the robin was already on the trellis waiting for his breakfast - OH went out and fed him while he was waiting for the kettle to boil

No gardening today - am meeting with Bro to get Pa's 'stuff' from The Lovely Home.  Maybe a pub lunch?
