Bye chuck! 

Of course I'm a lady so never use naughty sweary words...

Morning Matty- you'll need another holiday once you get that hedge done!

Brown spots on clematis leaves

I'd say just get it into the pot or position you want it, get it nice and settled in then take it from there. As IDGM says it may just be getting a bit stressed especially if it's not in the right site. Once it's in it'll probably be fine and will romp away. I bought 2 recently from the bargain corner at GC and now that  they're in some decent big pots with food and water I can barely keep up with tying them in to their supports!

Morning Tina. Hope you have a good day with friend away from painting and...chickens?? 

The posts seem to jump around a bit don't they? Just like mine will be tomorrow....    kerr-ching!! 

Hope it clears for the wedding Woody -always makes it better.

Daughter has friend staying over so I'll go out soon before the noise starts when they get up  I'm kidding- they're good really!

Might watch G's W first to see if I can spot Verd...

Oh chick- b****y rabbits. Can you get a bit of wire mesh round it temporarily till it gets going enough to withstand the onslaught?

If about ... X for Execution....

Morning all. Bit late today but I've not been sleeping - just busy! Weather as per everyone else so glad I got so much done outside yesterday. Still aching 

I think Andy is really Steve Austin.....wondered where he went...

Pam you're right..never seen them together!

Chick-  does the garden look enormous now or empty?

KEF it would be positively irresponsible not to go into the GC. I'll have to see if I've got anything needs returning...oh yes- going to B's Merchant so that involves going past one 

Epson salt on Runner beans

Good Evening FORKERS

MOB rants

What I don't like to see is young children with pierced ears - and you now see babies/toddlers with them. Isn't that child abuse?.. Becoming very difficult if you have children because peer pressure means that 7 and 8yr olds are harrassing their parents to let them get their ears pierced. Glad I'm past all that stuff!

Re tattoos - there was a story on one of the comedy quiz shows  (HIGNFY I think)  a while back about a woman who got her husband to do a huge tattoo on her back. He did - covering her whole back - and she assumed it was a lovely picture as it took ages. What she didn't know was: he knew she was having an affair, so he had tattooed a huge t**d complete with buzzing flies .....

Now that's revenge!!

Good Evening FORKERS

Where was I? ...when't remember......aaagh 

oh yeah....Woody's garden....forgot.. I flew about a bit last Sunday 

lovely pix Ggirl 

BL - so glad you're having such a lovely holiday. The opera sounded terrific. Can't beat a bit of Mozart- unless it's Verdi of course!

And I mean Guiseppi - not Verdi in Cornwall....

KEF I can take pix on my phone but no idea how to put them on here 

Been out all afternoon doing more bits to fence and making the gate for the side of house which will separate back and front gardens. Painted it but need one more bit of wood for the back supports, hinges to put on and screw together properly before putting it in place. Wanted to keep going while it was dry as it's to rain tonight and tomorrow.

Tina what was rattling your cage?

Sue if you can't get them in a supermarket try a hardware store or even a chemist perhaps? We would probably get them in DIY outlets here too. 

Gilly I expect the prog will be available on iPlayer at some point.
