moving and pruning honeysuckle

It roots quite easily from cuttings or you can lay some stems (still attached) on the ground with some soil over a section and they will root. I have used both methods successfully. I also hack mine back when they start taking over and they always recover.

They were a good size and had flower buds, the one I fancied was cardinal red.

Geoff, I think you know everything!

Poor Dai Green, I might live on the Pennines, but my heart is pure Welsh.

Mushroom omelette and salad tonight, ate too much fancy stuff on hols last week. Then a couple of Viennese fingers with my cuppa, 89p from Aldi. They had clematis for ??5.49, is that good or not?

any suggestions

You could go to Dove cottage nurseries and gardens near Shibden Hall in Halifax or York Gate gardens near Leeds for some ideas. Both make a nice afternoon out.

I organise plant swaps in work sometimes! Usually spring time, but would be good in autumn too.

Can anyone help identify this plant?

My pleasure! I like them but I have seen some people report on here that they can take over a bit. They don't in my garden which is heavy clay.

I am waiting for the very short shorts to fall down, or do they have extra strong elastic or maybe superglue? I wish Beth Tweddle had got the gold, she really deserves it. I hope she gets nominated for sports personality of the year this year, she should have been in the running last year.

Geoff, stuff like how customers behave, communications, PR, sponsorship,market research ..... Used to be an exporter so teach some of that too.

It could be a Japanese anemone - anemone hupensis?

August in your garden...

Lots of cutting back to do after being away in Wales last week, Crocosmia Lucifer finally out but bowed by very heavy rain yesterday, astilbes not quite there yet. Flowers on my clematis, dark purple not sure which one, every flower bud has had the top eaten off it, so strange looking flowers now. No flowers out on purple loosestrife yet and the figwort is huge, I'm having to think about the future of that one!

Geoff, I lecture in marketing at Huddersfield University and yes I love it. Teach some sports marketing so watching as much of the Olympics as I can. In for A level results next week.

Teach customer experience too, so all stories welcome! Rubbish service at Little Chef on the way home yesterday, they forgot to bring my toasted tea cake!
