What's the weather like in your area?

Cloudy again but like Jo4eyes says very humid and sticky . Had  potter outside yesterday and got chased by huge horsefly - think it was after my cake. Wasn't sharing. Hope it does thunder to clear the air - not a good nights' sleep. Geoff - you should be on the stage !!!!

Haha - you make me laugh Geoff !  Looks like another nice day - bit of low cloud around but think it'll burn off. Housework first (has to be done I suppose ) then GARDEN ALL DAY !!!!

Clematis offer in Sunday newspaper.

There's an offer in Sunday Express - 3 clematis for £5. 50 p&p. Ernest Markham, Duchess of Edinburgh and The President. I've taken advantage of some of these offers in the past and have to say the plants I've received have always been in tip-top condition so I'm going for it ! So if anyone wants to rush to their local paper shop you'll find the offer on page 35. Hope I'm allowed to put this on the forum !

Yes I've taken several cuttings from Helliotrope Marine and overwintered them indoors .  Tried fleecing them one year but no luck .
