Thanks Clarington. She is our baby.  

With regards to taking a cutting Philippa, I have been thinking about doing just that. Do they root easily?

No compost reviews at B&Q

I have also bought Verve compost.  I usually buy  the125lt bags and I have found it to be perfectly ok.  No complaints at all.

I have just bought a lemon verbena.  Really lemony.  A lovely looking herb too.  I have read that they need protection in the winter though so I planted it in a pot so it can be moved into the greenhouse.

hydrangea problem?

I have taken a hydrangea cutting (I think it is a lacecap).  It has been growing quite well but now all the new leaves are coming through white.  Does anyone know why?

That is right Colin.  Mine are now trying a takeover bid in the greenhouse.  I have 3 - too many I think.  They start off with tiny flowers then gradually the fruit follow. I have been feeding them the same as my tomatoes  Good luck with them.

Took a chance and picked one.  Really quite nice.  Not as watery as cucumber, a nice bite size treat.

Has anyone grown cucamelon before?  This is my first year of growing them and they are doing very well.  I am just unsure as to when you know they are ripe.
