You'll  still use the table Fishy65, I do. It's a good stop gap between GH and permanent planting.After all, I don't need the table till the weather gets warmer and spring is the busiest time in the garden. I generally decorate the outside of the house while topping up on my tan in summer while the garden needs less attention 

Grape vine newbie.

I agree with Bruce, I have a "Black Hamburg" in the GH trained along the middle and one side of the roof. It  is a heavy cropper although I am not so strict about my pruning and training. And, yes, it does help(fiddly) to leave space between glass and  vine to prevent mould. The vine is over thirty years old and its' roots are in the ground outside the GH. They grow very well outside too in large pots. Choose the right variety of grape for planting outside.  Like Bruce, I have struck some cuttings (very easy) and  hope to grow them in large pretty pots at focal points.

Bye the way, figs are easy to strike too and grow very fast

OMG ighten, you must have read my mind! I like Beechgrove too but feel the same as you. I cannot for the life of me see the"garden" side of it!!  I just felt it was unkind to say so.

Talking about MD's plot, you are right,there is a lot that is at the mercy of the people who have the dosh, and their word goes

I agree with all you say Busybee, and whether Monty is wealthy is irrelevant . Compared to AT's plot it is not a wealthy mans' garden, but  he(MD) is very down to earth(apologies David K) and is not a afraid to mention his failures so we can learn from his mistakes. I find his relaxed manner of presenting  easy to watch, others don't. We can't please all. 

Let us face it, if he was such a bad gardener would he be asked back after his short illness, and be fronting Chelsea? TV presenting is very competitive and the producers do not suffer bad presenting lightly

I have vines outside. I think it depends on the variety you grow. I have one that produces a bowl full of sweet fruit but tiny with pips. I liquidise them and make a drink with a spritzer. The black variety I have too, is "Black Hamburg" which has a reasonable size fruit but again with pips. But they are very sweet, which is lovely .

Hi Fishy, thank God for your pictures. I thought I was the only one whose garden table had squatters in the spring!

Talking about trailing begonias, Morrisons has got some very healthy looking plants which are ready to plant up. They are of various colours and @£2/= for 4 are good value.

Bye the way, Tesco is selling    "Bizzie Lizzy" plugs @ £3/= for 20. I think it is good value. My concern is that they had a virus a couple of years ago. Are they ok to grow now?  Are they disease free? I hope someone can enlighten us
