Wonky took a photo of the relevant tap and took it to Homebase or B&Q or wherever and showed them so she was sure she'd got one that fitted her tap. They were very helpful.
It's against a west facing wall, but the part that looks poorly is taller than the wall and therefore exposed to the freezing north-easterly winds we in the East of England have endured recently ... maybe that's what's done the damage? Whereabouts are you, geographically speaking?
Joyce, I've just bought an Actaea from Sarah Raven ... couldn't resist it ... where have you got yours and how tall has it got ... I'm not sure where I'm going to put this one ...

If there's anyone getting more sunshine than they need could they please give it a nudge over here ... flippin chilly again
You won't kill it, but it'll look flippin' ugly - there's one near here that someone has done that to, poor thing. It's a tree for big spaces ................
It's frost damage - there's a lot of it about The plants will recover
Just had a lovely long phone chat with a happy Wonky, followed by another with her brother ...now for a coffee and some list writing ... a short shopping list and a longer To Do list for the garden
Hello Pat She was indeed a remarkable woman - however I know that Ma felt that she and her siblings had been left to be cared for mainly by the housemaid (every middle class home had one back then) and rather resented the time their mother spent on 'good works'. Swings and roundabouts I suppose - and times were very different.
We've been sitting in bed listening to a song thrush singing somewhere out there. He's been at it for over an hour ... Wonderful
Right ... I think I'm getting the picture. It sounds similar to the problem Wonky Womble has spoken of on another thread. She's bought a connector that attaches a hosepipe to her kitchen tap and trails the hose out of her window and down to her garden. She just ha to be careful to keep the pressure down so it doesn't squirt indoors!
