Unwell looking acer

Acers like to be in a sheltered position out of direct sunlight, strong winds and frost.  Maybe yours has been damaged by the elements and needs some tlc.  I'm sure someone more experienced than me will advise you accordingly.  Good luck, it is beautiful.

Climbers for cottage style garden, advice most welcome.

You're not taking this seriously, Jimmy!  I recommend all of the above, but there's no guarantee!

Thiis has just landed on the outside table! I haven't seen one before and wondered if anyone knows anything about it, please.

I have now bought the Bosch 43 Rotak LI Ergoflex, at a discounted price from Hampton Court.  Used it for the first time today and, so far, am very pleased with the result.

Try posting the pictures, Cathy, and then you'll get a more positive response I'm sure.  There is a problem in posting pics at the moment, but hopefully this will be sorted very soon.

Well, obviously, you are unable to stay overnight, so leave as early as you possibly can in order to make the most of your day.  In preparation, get a programme so you can identify the stands/gardens/nurseries etc. you particularly wish to see.  You'll have a great day, I am sure, and if you wish to go again next year, maybe you can plan in advance to stay overnight.  Enjoy!
