Hi JuUK

I've not grown an akebia, but I thought you might like to see the pictures of the one we saw on our visit to West Acre Gardens yesterday

You keep goats!?   I used to keep goats - I had Golden Guernseys, English Guernseys and British Saanans.  Ma kept a couple of Toggenburgs.  I love goats.

What sort of goats do you have?

How to beat this weed?

Hard to tell from this distance whether that's foxgloves or something from the borage family (comfrey/alkanet etc).

Can we have a closer picture or two of stems/leaves please

moving blackberry plant

I'd do it once the leaves have fallen. Prepare the site well and when you dig them take as large a rootball as possible.  Lift the rootball and slide it onto a sheet of plastic or binbag and drag it to the new site to keep the soil around the rootball as intact as possible.

I'd try to do it without cutting back the branches, but you may need to shorten them a bit and tie them up to make it easier to handle.

Water in and mulch with leafmould and it should be fine.

Beans for drying- now what?

I've got so many plants sitting waiting for a home - I'd planned to dig out at least one and possibly two new beds - but this injured wrist has put that on hold, so I restricted myself to two ferns for the 'Dark Path' down the side of the house - a little Asplenium trichomanes (Maidenhair spleenwort) and an Athyrium Felix-Femina 'Frizelliae' or Lady Fern - frilly variety.
