That would be the American nation?

It seems as though an element of stocking up has gone on-or panic buying as we like to call it-but as many precautions are in place as can be

It has turned into the usual media event-there will be a lot of disappointment if nothing happens- like the Hawaiian tsunami

It is getting very windy and stormy across ocean-we will at some point get the aftermath of of this but not that intense

I 'm confused now, I always thought buddlia was cut back to the ground in May and just trimed to stop wind rock over the winter.  Is it better to cut right back now?

I will repeat what I have written elsewhere-in my experience it makes little difference when you cut it back-I have done it at this time of year with no problems-one thing I have learnt is that you cant kill as buddleia-honestly I would do it now- job done

I would be more inclined to switch to container gardening rather than coping with those conditions-that leaves you open to a whole load of options

That is if you hadn't considered or are doing that already?

After Downton-I'm a Celeb starts and will probably be on every night for at least 2 weeks and perhaps 3-we are now in the Countdown to C******* telly in TV land-

-I can guarantee there will not be a Jim'll Fix It C****** special-

-but probably a Downton Special where the house burns down, they all move to 165 Eaton Pace and the series is renamed Downton Upstairs where Rose reveals she is the secret love child of a dalliance between Lord Grantham and Mrs Bridges, Mr Bates finally admits his love for Carson and Mr 'udson cops of with the understairs, kitchen, scullerymaid 's servant.

Or that might just be in my head
