I'd have said for some they would be an eyeopener!

I don't however get where the word thong came from in this title in the first place? Am I missing something?

I'm glad this is just a honeysuckle and I won't be paid back by a triffid if I replant it!

Having cleared the space to put my raised beds in back in October, there was an unfortunate casualty in the shape of a honeysuckle that I couldn't be bothered to untangle from the plastic mesh trellis so it just got pulled out of the ground, rolled up in the mesh and stuffed behind the greenhouse until I could be bothered to tidy it all up properly (lazy I know!)

Imagine my surprise when, earlier this evening, I went to get something from behind the greenhouse and found that it is covered in new leaves. Bearing in mind that its roots are pretty much exposed and a foot above the ground, I feel it has performed above and beyond the call of duty and no I feel obliged to find it a new home somewhere in the garden!

After following Toby Buckland's highly helpful 'How to put up plant support wires' video, I have just put up some wires in the garden. They are pretty much horizontal and it shows how skew-wiff the fence is!

Mine are in reasonable shade for most of the afternoon but do get morning sun and they just go mad!
