Evening all  

It's been a glorious day today but unfortunately no gardening for me instead we've been stuck indoors  for last few days decorating. Hopefully get it finished tomorrow. 

Anyone back the winner in the National? OH & I were only saying today that the whole event has been scaled down over the years. We're not too far from Aintree and I remember the Red Arrows used to fly over as did Concord on Grand National day

Threading...How Does it Work?

A cotton thread is pulled along unwanted hair in a twisting motion, to trap hair in a mini lasso, and lifts hair right out of the follicle.

I'm only 27 so of course it's only my eyebrows that need seeing to  but let me just say on-one has ever mini lassoed me!

Re unwanted facial hair...try threading it's flipping brilliant! I've only ever had my eyebrows done but I will say it's more uncomfortable than painful, it's quicker than tweezers, doesn't irritate like wax etc and it lasts longer than anything else I've tried.

Well would you believe it...I'm 27 too but can't quite fathom how I have a son 2 years older and a daughter 1 year younger than I am   funny thing is though I remember the long hot summer of '76  I was still at school and it was the year I met my 1st love (oh I really thought I was going to marry you do when you're 15)

Good morning well it's very grey here this morning but thankfully no frost. Think we may have a trip out to the garden centre this morning then who knows what we'll do...yes it's a lazy day doing not very much today 


PS just watching the weather and they're claiming it will get up to 17* by next week....hmmm what day is it?????? 

Clematis 'Rouge Cardinal'

Thank you all for your advice. I'll keep an eye on it, do as you've suggested (where possible) and keep my fingers crossed in the hope that it will recover

Morning everyone. Lovely & sunny here again this morning but there's a hell uv a frost! My fatsia always lets me know how cold it is out there. He doesn't like the cold too much and sulks when it's rather chilly and this morning...boy is he sulking!!!!

Bit gutted yesterday to find by clematis has succumed to the cold I think. I pruned it a few weekes ago and it was sprouting new shoots beautifully. Now it's just all wilted  Ah well I'll leave it alone and see what happens once the weather warms up. 

Got the outlaws coming for dinner today. Not a pleasant experience I can tell you but these things have to be done

Enjoy your day everyone and Happy Easter  

Clematis 'Rouge Cardinal'

Posted: 30/03/2013 at 15:37

I pruned my Clematis Rouge Cardinal about 6-8 weeks ago and it began to produce lovey healthy looking shoots. I've just looked at it and all the new growth is wilting.

Is it as a result of this unseasonally cold weather and if so will it recover?  

Is there anything I can do to help it recover? 

Or is it the dreaded clematis wilt?????

I hope it's not dying as it's a beautiful plant and produces masses of flowers in the summer.

@ tattiana

Once germinated, they need light. Preferably sunlight, but as much bright light as they can get for at least 12-14 hours a day. You can take the cover off providing there's still reasonable warmth.


Thank you Italophile
