Dove - love the clematis Alpina - they are so dainty.  Do they have a second flush of flowers later in the year?

Mine do, if I don't prune them after flowering, which I don't.  

Interesting article here 

I want all of them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Raspberries in a greenhouse?

Posted: 22/04/2014 at 20:02

Hi Staceyj

I think it'd be too warm for them in a greenhouse - raspberries do best in cooler moister areas, which is why they do well in Scotland. 

What about visiting a second hand or charity shop and buying some old net curtains - when the fruits have formed and before they ripen, drape the curtains over like a wedding veil - that'll keep those pesky blackbirds off

Check the stems - snails climb up them at night and strip the bark off them, killing individual branches - go out there at night with a torch and nab them

I've heard reports that blackbirds will take them from the edges of ponds - any blackbird activity around there?

On the sofa, stuffed with a pasta thingy made with leftover-chicken and some Swiss chard from the garden.  The sky is brightening in the west and the blackbird is singing from the rooftop.
