moving blackberry plant

That's what I would do - you'll probably have to cut it back when you move in June and forgo fruit for 2016 - but otherwise I'm sure it'll be fine.

I wore mine for a couple of hours this morning before tennis, to get used to it, and by the time I was there I almost forgot I was wearing it.

Exactly Fairy ............ 


And it doesn't work anyway - it only kills the part of the plant it touches - it doesn't translocate back down to the roots and kill them - and it kills all the invertebrates in the soil, any small mammals and insects that touch it, and poisons the soil.  Why would anyone ............ ?

Knee support turned out to be much more comfortable in use than I had thought

Brrrrr!  the sky in the northeast just went dark, then a muddy yellow, then there was a rainbow - now a huge black cloud has spread across the sky - just a little blue patch in the far west - and it's sleeting - I didn't think we were expecting sleet and snow again until the weekend

Hello folks!  Back from tennis - one other newbie this week so that makes 6 of us all together at the moment - apparently there are two other regulars who are away at the moment.  There's only the one court and we play 5 sets at a time so that works well with turn taking etc. 

Better have a look and see what you've all been chatting about this morning

....  Didn't know Dove likes awful reality programmes! I quite like some of them Good for ironing in front of.

Absolutely BL - a bit of a Judge Judy fan - but at least I know that her reality is far removed from real life and she knows it's just Show Business.   Can't stand any of the others tho - Jeremy Kyle should be banned from tv for ever!  Talk about exploitative

Is this mahonia?
