Don't all mothers in law have shrivelled tongues? 

Or was that just mine?

 Blackthorn, as the name suggests, is very very thorny!!


ppauper- it's great for keeping out undesirables though  

I have blackthorn  hedge round the front garden, but it has pavement (and paved path) on one side and grass on the other so the suckers get mown and, as yet, haven't been an issue.

Her's hoping it warms up soon and you don't need it all 

The first frost

Frosts in many glens and more exposed parts up here pansyface but we're too damp where I am most of the time.  Gets down low through the night though, and must have been pretty near 0 on a few occasions recently. We don't expect much from summers here but it was even worse than usual.

Bit of write- off all over Britain this year I think 

what to plant

I'm not really a veg grower but if you give a few more details about soil, aspect and size, you'll get more suggestions 

It also depends what you like to eat! 

Not sure what this is

Gazillions ...

Are we taking that too far now?

The other idea is to buy a plant (or two)  and split them. They'll grow on over the winter into decent sized plants for putting out next year.

Lots of places have sales at this time of year too and a plant bought now has had all season to grow, so it's a safe bet you'll get two or three decent bits from one plant - or even more

Pat - should you really be hoiking lumps of wood around when you're not 100%...
