Good morning Verdun - it's still quite mild here - nearly 10C !  But as you say there's snow in the forecast for later on, probably tonight and tomorrow morning here - that's because I have to visit the Aged Ps as the dentist is coming to fit Ma's new teeth!!!

really need help

To help you decide I suggest you have a look at this site

They have a good selection of vines and are extremely helpful and knowledgeable and you can contact them for advice about the right vine for you.

I have no relationship with them other than as a very satisfied customer.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Winter flowering jasmine- can it be trusted?

Winter flowering jasmine is lovely

There's no way I'd describe it as a thug.  It will grow quite happily even if you ignore it, so if people do that and it outgrows it's space what do they expect ?   It's very easy to keep it to it's space, with just a bit of regular attention - that's called gardening in my book

Morning Clari - you snuck in there!

Good morning all  

MrsG - a very happy birthday to new teenager and huge congratulations to the parents for having got this far

Sorry to hear Mr & Mrs Bill have been poorly - recovery takes longer when you're older, so be patient and take things gently.

Panda - just love those sparkling gnashers

Dd - glad the old gentleman's ok - didn't I say labradors are fantastic?!

Hugs and everything to everyone I've missed - I need more coffee

The Good Life?

Absolutely agree Gemma - so much good stuff from Geoff Hamilton, and all still available in books and on DVD and YouTube - I have some of them - so another presenter needs to do something else - imagine the fuss if someone came along and showed us how to make a hypertufa trough ... again!  And I've just watched a video of GH tieing up the leaves of cardoons - how I'd love to have the space to grow cardoons, but I don't and that's that.  I don't hold it against GH that he's showing me something that I can't do any more than I'm more than a tiny bit envious of the large wildlife pond that Monty has when I only have a small one.

You never know, if I'd turned that 9 acre smallholding I had into a wonderful garden instead of growing hay and milking goats I might just be the presenter of GW now - but I'm not and I really don't see any point in being miffed about it. 

MD will not be the presenter of GW for ever - I'm sure he has other things he wants to do - and I don't suppose the person who steps into his gardening boots will be able to please all the people all of the time either

only leaves

Shall we pool our piggy banks?

Or shall we stick with our seed swap?
