Slight panic on here... Lodger next door(raised in a flat in inner city) came round. Last night she slept with a window open, and it rained....and a snail crawled in.....  and now its stuck to the bedroom wall.  OMG

So I got the chemical protection suit out and long rubber gloves...... No, not really.

I took it off the wall, took it outside, stamped on it and fed it to Mrs Mallard who has just turned up for dinner. LOL.

She's absolutely terrified of the frogs. Usually she won't venture off of the patio.

Sometimes with cuttings it is down to the weather. Last year was very late season. This year is early.  Try a few as soon as the shoots are semi ripe. I took buddleja cuttings a month ago, which  was totally the wrong time, and most of them have rooted. Could you pm me where you live?' For all I know you could be, in the next road. I thought I was the only forker in  Nottingham..
