I hadn't really noticed him and never heard him speak before Hosta, very refreshing

Referendum, Doesn't it make you spit!!

Out of a group of 4 , the vote was split 50/50. I was surprised by the 2 out votes, one of them had recently changed his mind and said I can't believe I'm doing this but...........immigration.

I really hope we stay in as it's scarey to think of us out on our own and with the US as our biggest alli. I also don't have confidence in the current political figures, to make it work if we did leave. Or make it work for who? I don't think it will be me

I was talking to OH just now and bits and pieces have popped up on facebook. Some of the discussion has been around online privacy.


Maybe this is another thing that we take for granted like the time directive under the EU?

 I don't agree with all he says but did anyone see Jeremy Corben on The Last Leg? I thought he handled it well. What struck me watching him is that when he was asked what he thought about x y  he came right out and said it. You were in no doubt that the words were his own and he believed in them completley.

Not seen a politician like that before, he also refused to stand with Cameron in the out campaign, good man

This has been fixed my end since the forum has changed. I can see all my old posts but not all my started threads. If I try to look back on threads I've started it brings me back to the forum, just as it's always done. I'm using laptop and fire fox

Interesting question, I've added loads of honesty and sweet rocket to my compost bin. When I was cutting them back, I was thinking they would be good compost material as there was such a lot of green growth on them

Perennials can take longer to germinate and are slower growing. Most of my annuals have taken about 12 weeks to get to nearly flowering stage

Growing clematis Montana over an arch

Posted: 11/06/2016 at 11:09

Mines a rubens type I think. It doesn't get any particular tlc once they are up and running, they grow really fast.Water it in well at first and just keep an eye out for slugs or snails at first. It all depends on how big you want it to get. See how far it gets up the arch this year.

The front runner on the summerhouse is currently doing about 2" growth per week.
