Crickey I can't keep up with you all 

Susan lovely to get flowers from your dtr

Matty I'm also not buying, I need to make some beds to put things into but that will be when weather warms up. 

Panda nails sound very executive, I can't wear nail varnish to hide the muck 

Dove love aubergines

Winter maybe you start a thread PA rather than AA think Verdun, Fidget and Runny should sign up   along with half this forum  Not me as I'm not going to the GC tomorrow

Runny if too big for a pot get it in a black sack filled with soil / J Innes and wrap root ball up to protect from frost and put in shady place, they don't like a lot of water so just keep check on weight of it. Best I can offer 

Back in a few mins I'm needed downstairs 

Cutting sambucus nigra back

greg, I shoved a piece that had broken off into a pot and it grew, however it didn't do too well after a couple of years, I assume they are greedy feeders and I couldn't give it what was required no matter how large the pot. Eventually I had to plant it in another garden, but I made the mistake of not putting it in a sunny place and it started to revert to green rather than black. 

Maybe consider taking a cutting from your existing one and start a new one that might look good for a few years

Thanks Verdun & Woody  I know there isn't anything wrong inside the house the line and sockets have been checked even though EE have insisted they are sending out another router  Without being too boring there is a drop wire that needs removing from the star wiring outside it is giving priority to the phone line and increasingly slowing down the broadband, it was wrongly installed. I hear Verdun shouting compo  

After being  I can laugh at how someone in India can flick a switch and increase the download speed from 0.28mbps yes that's all it was to 8.06 , however being only half a mile from the exchange we should have 15meg unless EE are capping it, which the call centre seemed unwilling to discuss

We will see what happens on Monday but we aren't paying, and the engineer goes up his ladder before setting foot inside.

Good morning all 

Broadband engineer coming Monday morning after OH had two long and barely understandable conversations with a call centre in India They are still adamant that slow speeds are due to inside problems, which is incorrect as our ex BT broadband engineer friend has checked everything out and has told us exactly what the problem is with the wiring outside. The call centre wanted OH to dismantle the router  I think they would then have found an inside fault and charged us which would cover their costs of sending an engineer to rectify outside problem  

I hope Beaus isn't using the same supplier or we might not see her again!
