Do those leaves smell of anything OL?

I know exactly what you're thinking Nut - I'm thinking the same 

OL, pick a small sprig and rub it hard between your fingers and then smell it .........

Raspberries prefer a slightly acidic soil so that'll be why they didn't like it there

Mine hasn't produced any yet - I think it produces them when it's more mature so it still needs help to cover the fence/wall - mine is covering an area about 6ft high by  across so far and no sign of adventitious roots.

Talkback: How to grow wallflowers

I'm wondering whether the mild winter confused them - probably didn't think it was time to flower yet.

Watching Wimbledon here   not a huge tennis fan but I do like to watch Wimbledon and sometimes get quite enthusiastic - fond memories of watching Goran Ivaniševic  and also a big Agassi fan .

I forgot to tell you that on the way home I went past that roadside stall where I bought those Dianellas - did I swerve across the road and screech to a halt again - I did  and this time a lovely well grown plant of Salvia 'Icing Sugar' found it's way into my heart - it's destined for the front garden near some purple sage.
