Morning all - nice day here - for now, pity I have to work 

nut those gardens looked lovely - I'm coveting the formal pond - very soothing.

Off for a look round now before I go for a shower

Lovely jubbly BL -  I love raspberries. 

Couldn't be bothered with dinner so had a piece of toast and a load of cherries. 

I do the same AWB 

Lesley - I didn't prune right down - left most of the 'front' and took it off the height so it should be ok, but I'm secretly hoping it gives up the ghost...

nut - were you staggering round towards the end then? 

Cane tops

I don't really use them because I don't have many plants which need staking. I only  have big ones for the sweet peas and they're much taller than me! I keep the tops from any climbers I buy though, and use those.

Love the owls though chick  

Rebecca's idea is great - perhaps you could do it with rubber bands 

Newbie unsure what plant this is

It looks like the one I've inherited here - no idea what it is but it's in lots of gardens round about! I've lifted and chopped loads of it so if anyone wants any...let me know! 

Pallet strawberries!

You could do something similar for herbs and maybe salad crops if space was limited. 

I once saw an old bookcase being used for a similar project. Must have been a timber one which was painted or stained to use outside.

I've just hacked the rhodie at the front door Bob - could have done with a shredder for that too. It's way too big for the spot and needed  a good haircut even if it means less flowers next year. It's had a feed and water but I'm  still considering getting rid of it

They'd make a nice sandwich KEF....

Sounds like a lovely day BL- especially after your hard graft yesterday. Have to go back out and collect daughter from a friend  At least it's not  what chicky's got to do ..

Washed my car and moved a few plants and did bits and bobs but I'm a bit weary. I'm having a wee sit down too Panda but with a cup of tea
