I showed OH the chillis, Stacey, he thinks you photoshopped them.

It reminds me of when we used to sell a capsaicin cream called "Fiery Jack" (a rubbing cream for arthritis). We used to tell the men they had to wash their hands BEFORE they went to the toilet.......

I did wonder if its time to start a new thread for chat, and abandon the "forkers "title altogether. I think it has been spoilt .

We could move into a virtual log cabin for a fresh start.( The potting shed won't be big enough) 

Dove said to me that she would be OK with that. However I don't want to start one and have the divisions we had when the old morning and evening forkers threads were abandoned.

What does everyone else think?

HELLO FORKERS!

Chillis cause the release of endorphins which act as a natural pain killer as well as  the "high"feeling. But they disagree with my insides somewhat violently, so I'll stick to  plain chocolate for my endorphins, Thanks.

Just give it a good haircut, like you would with a honeysuckle. Do the frosts job for it.

Bamboo in trough

It depends on how you want it to look. The cut stems will not regrow and cramp the new shoots. I would cut all stems to the ground, have a good clear out, give it a feed of a general fertiliser, stand back and watch it grow.

Shoots pruned to  6 ft will not regrow or branch as you have taken out the growing tip.
