What was Monty Don using?

Have just had a look again- they were anything specific or are even manufactured -it is just a piece of wire bent to a U shape

Stop searching and make you own -or buy some fencing staples-similar to these -but not necessarily these

It is hard to keep a constant watch without be targeted as the nosy neighbour-they did not seem that excited or stand outside looking wistfully-but that could be the bluff game.

All you young things dancing around the garden with ribbons is a strange image

Have just spent 15 minutes on curtain twitching duty-the estate agent turned up then a young couple to look at catman's house-they have passed my preliiminary inspection -did not stay long and only glanced at back garden-not sure if the length of stay is good or bad.

Watch this space

I would-but put on the staging rather than lower down-slug pellets will take care of the nasties.

There is not much you can do to get it to flower other than wait-only water if it shows signs of wilting-not on a regular basis-if that is 2 weeks then so be it-this will trigger a mechanism in the plant that makes it think it is on the way out so will flower in order to reproduce that is when you will get fruit.

Patience is a virtue.

As regards light again as much as you can-I am guessing you don't have a greenhouse?

The legginess is because it is indoors where light levels are lower and it is a touch warmer-you should get something but it is hard to predict when.

You need flowers to get fruit and as there is no sign of flowers--do not feed make it suffer and hopefully at some point..............it looks a bit leggy as well -is it getting enough light?

Well overslept slightly but still managed 9 holes before 10am

Have now got withdrawal symptoms- reality will kick in when other news takes priority

VB has still got great legs though-zigga,zigga

Jean love the extreme gardening suit-could do with fluorescent shoes to complete the ensemble.

Can't dance- so not SCD for me-can't sing either- but will lap up XF
