I see you haven't lost your comedic touch Verd....I can but hope...

Wonder what they like on the  telly archie?

I'll get me coat...oh - I won't need it . The rain has gone off! 

Lovely roast dinner consumed, courtesy of F.Fairy. At this rate I can retire from chef-ing duties 

Just getting started and had several garden thefts

They weren't terracotta KT - just terracotta coloured plastic. 

Still doesn't justify the theft anyway. Some people are opportunists - they'd nick anything. 

Round 'em up and put 'em in the stocks that'll larn 'em 

Clematis ID please

He's a good soul isn't he? You're  right - many very good people here.

pansyface...don't know what to say. Makes me so angry. You can buy fake cctv cameras for a tenner - perhaps that's worth trying as it may just be enough to deter the more determined b******s.

Just don't ask me to come and help paint it KEF....

What are you putting in your cold frame?

The rain has gone off here. Got child to come and help get the food shopping and she is now doing her roast chicken dinner. Result!

And invest in a CCtv camera nin. Dove's right - they're despicable.

I'm about to do that to catch the ****** who keeps letting their dog out to come in  my garden time after time after time.... 

I know who it is,  I will catch them and will thoroughly enjoy seeing them get their thousand pound fine.

What's wrong with my clematis? And what can I do?

I'd agree with obelixx - feed well.  A strong, healthy plant is able to cope with issues more readily and clematis are greedy plants. Snails will happily climb up and eat emerging buds so keep an eye out for them, and slugs love the soft new growth. I found one three feet up the stem of one of my new blackthorn hedging whips on Saturday!

I think that's  a very good comment Scott and I thoroughly agree. It's already been established that cookery programmes are achieving the opposite effect of what we'd assume - people are watching them as a way to pass time rather than going into the kitchen to copy the chefs they see. 

I think Beechgrove is making it's mark now that it's nationwide. Strangely, I never used to be a fan of it, but I reckon it's covering subjects in a better way and showing people useful tips and methods while still catering for more experienced gardeners. Competition is always a good thing!
