Me too Fruitcake. Mine grow in the greenhouse happily side by side. 

Greenhouse cleaning

Infuse hot soapy water with a splash of bleach. I also use a steam cleaner to get into the nooks and crannies. 

Hate it when the water dribbles down the sleeves!!

I wish someone would invent....

...gardening gloves that are thin enough to feel what you're doing, but with some sort of protective rubber (or some such material) that protects my finger nails.

I love a good dig but not so keen when my nails have that dirty stain around the edges. I have to point at plans a lot in meetings and it makes me cringe! I hate painting my nails too so no way to hide it.

I could always give up work I guess?!

Fantastic. Will you share your progress? The more the merrier! 

How lovely to be planting for your wedding CharlieBot. No pressure then?! Are you going for a colour theme?

On the telly box it showed the chap pruning with one hand instead of trying to reach into the thorny bed with two hands. He sort of carried the pruned bit away without it touching anything. 

Youd have to try and see it because my description isn't great!

I quite agree. Lovely plants especially when they are grouped together. Ive got tonnes snuggled up in a cold frame waiting for spring before I pop them in the ground.
