I think my mum and her pal used to grow and propogate these with great success. I'll ask and get back to you.

How lovely! I wish something could be done at Grantham Station but sadly it's mainly concrete...and grumpy East Coast staff!

Glad your cat is ok. I'm no expert, but a few suggestions on here in the past have been quite alarming and I've often thought about whether folk actually think about the potential wider implications to wildlife.

Just a thought JBR, but some silly people put all sorts of things in gardens to deter cats without even thinking about the wider implications. I hope none of your neighbours have done so.  Hope you get to the bottom of it If it happens again, and I hope your kitty is ok too.

Beautiful shade of pink. Are you in the south kels? I'm in the Midlands and my camelia has some lovely fat buds coming along but they are tightly shut and have a way to go yet.

cant wait for the muscari to come out. My favourites!

deliberate or not

I'm with Dove. Id fence it and have a go at some nice climbers to grow up the panels.  Sorry for you Annette though as having a horror as a neighbour is not pleasant. Hope it doesn't get you down. 

whats gone wrong??????????

Looks good to me. It'll spring into life later on. Cut off any dead bits like Dave and Mollis say, and also cu off any stem that has gone pappy or wrotten. 

On a cheery note!

What brilliant photos. I wish I had an eye for it.

Anyone done any gardening today?

As soon as you said Tyne and Wear Victoria Sponge my brain read the rest of your post with an accent! My mums side is from Hartlepool and I love their accent. We make my Grandma say certain words just to hear it at its best. The Nottingham accent doesn't sound nearly as soothing!  

Glad to hear your fence is mended. 

 

Great Way of Making Some Money Out of this Hobby?

Great idea Paul. Good on your mum too. I love the idea of an honesty box. I always go out of my way to buy from houses selling from the garden gate.
