Gardenjeanie how are they growing? I can't wait to get hold of some cuttings next spring to get started on some new ideas.

Brumbull did you get your twisted stem started?

Yes I want them as high as I can get them. Never tried it before so a new project for me. The annoying thing is I still haven't been able to get any cuttings to take so will have to rely on  buying little plants that haven't been pinched out next spring, to start some more off. I'll put them in mini greenhouse and keep a careful eye on the temperature- prehapsa bit of fleece if it gets cold.

Have you had a chance to see the twisted ones on the fuchsia growing thread started earlier in the year Brum?

Soo soooo lovely Lilylouise. As Matty said how lovely to watch this on such a horrid day. You must spend every waking minute in your garden to keep it so lovely.

Thank you for sharing it

Why is it whenever I take ages to write something it just dissappears

They are between one and two feet. I only started them in about May. I was going to put them in a plastic mini greenhouse. I'm on the south coast and it kept last years fuchsias in baskets ok. If that's not enough they would have to come somewhere into the house.

Usually weetabix with yoghurt then coffee when I get to work. At weekends often just a cup of coffee. I think I might start having porridge. Now I'm hungry

Morning all.

It's that horrid fine rain here and looks set for the day. Still thank goodness I've still got plenty of marking to do to keep me from having to do H******work.

Took some pics yesterday of things still flowering nicely, mostly fuchsias- I'll see if I get time to get them uploaded today as well. ....BUT then I also wanted to clean and sort my pots out. Such exciting decisions to make as to how to spend the day. Better have another cup of coffee whilst I decide.

A quick question- my daughter has a very small garden- even smaller than mine- mind you can see and hear the sea. Beach a 5 min stroll away. I wan to get her a hardy fuchsia for in a pot. Want one that flowers over a long period. My choices at the moment are Heathfield or Army Nurse. Does anyone have any better ideas please?

Have a great day all

Worst Winter ....... .?
