Gosh, that brings back some memories Tracey! Sally Cinnamon wasn't a mainstream track so you must have been a loyal fan! Great that the 'youth' appreciate the old Roses! I feel less old now, and slightly more cool! Heed heeee!

It is always a great wonder why those folk in 'telly land' don't make more gardening progs. I'd love to follow an allotment, or learn more about cuttings, or how garden centres work, or how to make better compost.....the topics are endless. It's not exactly a high-budget topic either, and the advertising revenue from suppliers (if not on bbc) would be huge. Missing a trick I reckon. I once toyed with the idea of creating a dating / friendship / companion website for single gardening folk looking for friends or a relationship... I wonder if one exists - not that I want to get rid of my other half of course!

Unfinished Sympathy by Massive Attack has got to be in my top three. Closely followed by Scissor Sisters version of Comfortably Numb and Resurrection by the Stone Roses.  LOVE music!

Ah, thanks Dove. So will it develop more canes over the years? Do you know if it will produce fruit in its first year in the ground?

Hi folks, I purchased what I thought was a raspberry plant......never grown them before so please forgive this question, but from the picture below, is this a single plant or is it three plants / canes? Do I plant it in the ground as one, or split it into three? Thanks in advance!

 Mine is way off being ready. This crown was in a pot for 4 years and didn't produce anything worthy of picking. Will it be ok to pick what comes this year as it will be the first year of it being in the ground?

Where have the birds gone!!!
