Fidget ones , planted gooseberries in allottment , did not realise just how prickly they are , will keep them as it was a present and gooseberries and custard rather nice 

A really productive day tidying up hawthorn hedge and trimming ash trees so we can see fields from side conservatory , a bit done in but worth it 

took 6 bags of garden waste to tip , as garden bin getting a bit full

Ginagibbs , hope you do well , it is nice to have good work noted , best of luck 

was not going to go to allottment today but might have to water yesterdays seeds as it had been a another really sunny day

 Northern lass , clemaitis ball , basically it is 2 hanging baskets with cable ties and 4 small clemaitis from Morrisons , in the winter I trim it off and put it in the greenhouse for protection , bring it out in the spring , feed water and hopefully away it goes . Got the idea a few years ago from a gardening talk by a Clemaitis grower , in fact she even recommend Morrisons clematis because you need small ones , hopefully next year will be much better , give it a try
