Cut the shoot back by at least half. If will then branch and send out side shoots. Summer prune those to three buds which will form fruit the following year.

Just been to supermarket. I had just locked the car and the heavens opened. 100yd dash and arrived at trolley bay soaked. Did shopping, then managed to drop a bag off of top of trolley. Of course it was the one with the glass jars in. Put shopping in car, then went back in for another jar of chilli dipping sauce. 

Party and fireworks tomorrow.

I'm glad you found the bracelet , punkdoc. I empty my vacuum cleaner on to the compost heap rather than the dustbin , hoping that if I lost an earring, it may eventually turn up.

Have a good weekend, folks.

Overwintering Red Banana

Bubble wrapping the pot is OK

 Fleece can breathe so is better around the stem. The other way to do it is a cage of chicken wire stuffed with straw, which is breathable,and a sheet of plastic only over the top few inches, to keep any rain out (if your garage leaks).

My wendys wish now looks poorly after the frost, worse than Amistad.  I'm going to cut them down, dig them up and put them in the greenhouse for the winter.

I overwintered a maurelii last winter in the greenhouse, the leaves went horrible and I cut them off in early spring snd repotted and fed it. Now its in a huge pot. I've cut off all the leaves, wrapped the stem in fleece, and put a carrier bag over the top. The greenhouse is kept just above freezing. I won't water until March.

I'm glad he's at home recuperating, Runnybeak. Its a lot easier than hospital visiting. After last years palaver I've come to hate hospital visiting.

We're having a birthday/looking at wedding photos party on Saturday. We couldn't have fireworks at the wedding venue, so for Saturday we have fireworks to set off early, then lots of  drinks sorted. I just need to decide what we are feeding them.

Always wash your hands BEFORE going to the toilet after using Fiery jack rheumatism cream.
