Let it be known that Wonky refused to continue membership of Brownies, Drama or any other club as they "..kept telling her what to do ... ". 


She did, however, want to learn to box ... Back in those days no boxing clubs would accept girls ...

2 new plants- help

Honeysuckle frequently succumbs to powdery mildew due to dryness at the roots. Clay soils can dry out quickly.  As has been said you should incorporate lots of organic matter into the planting site along with grit and keep it well watered during dry spells. Don't plant directly at the foot of a fence or wall, plant at least 18" away and train the growth back to the support with canes. 


Good luck
