Save the old stems to dry out and put on the BBQ when cooking fish - will give lovely aroma - or use them to make a bug box 

The mystery of pH.

Good morning all   did you miss me???   I did try to tell you all last night where I'd been, but our broadband went down  

Gosh it was foggy up in Lincolnshire yesterday morning!!!  

We went to Grantham, then down to Amersham in Bucks, then Campsea Ashe in Suffolk and back here to Norfolk.  I helped son with the driving which was fun as he has an Alpha with a bit of oomph   Sadly not a single garden centre on the motorways - lots of petrol stations and fast food outlets  think they're missing a trick there!!!

Hi Christina

Can you give us an idea of variety, what it's fed with and when, and any pruning/training etc?

A picture often helps too 

Help to ID a fairly common plant please?

Steve,  I posted the pic from the internet to help the original poster decide if that was the correct plant

I used them to treat a bed for Vine Weevil - it had a fantastic effect and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.
