Good morning, slight frost here 5C and down to 1C in GH overnight  Luckily I had heard forecast and put fleece over some plants.

Runny yes my spuds are through I had topped them up so they are okay after the frost.

DD your garden is looking great.

Dicentra alba, mine likes semi shade and moisture it grows as well as the ordinary pink/white one and the new to me last year Valentine is happy there.

Hosta I hope your chillies are okay mine are still in the conservatory.

Well done Verdun

Radish for your meal tonight Runny 

Thanks all, I have recovered from my slobber trauma  I know about Elder Abuse can you complain about dog abuse to small in height peeps

It's been blowing like billio here and been raining heavily for the last couple of hour

My Agastache Mexicana red fortune has survived a Yorkshire winter and the back up is growing well in the GH.

Well pleased that Anchusa Lodden Royalist has also survived and is re- growing 

Dicentra are emerging and delphinium Fidget are romping away as are Barlow fidget black aquilegia 

Have topped up my spud bags so they are growing well & purple sprouting broccoli with today's meal. 

Lovely time of the year. 

Have a good evening all 

Cant find reply from Nut cutlet

Nut's reply was :

The branches will not regrow. I'd take the stumps off back to the trunk, and see what it looks like then

Good morning 

Back from visiting relatives that I haven't seen for over ten years, we had a good time and all the usual porkies were told you haven't changed a bit 

One relative has four !!!! Great Danes and I have been shoved, pushed, tail lashed and slobbered on 

Matty pleased the mower was okay 

It's not looking promising weather wise, heavy rain & wind due shortly.  

Have a good day everyone.
