Alstromeria Blossom 

Pruning summer flowering Jasmine

Reg, because your trellis needs replacing, I would hard prune now.  It will recover....possibly flower next summer but a bit later.

I hard prune now anyway....a lot of things are still flowering but be strong

Busy,  out of the blue you pm'd me not to discuss christianity on the FORUM.  Nothing to do with the thread at all.  Christianity is supposed to be about tolerance of others so, yes, Busy, your reaction is "childish".  You have simply reinforced my opinion of how christianity is.......you cannot block out everybody else's opinion because it is not yours.

Busy, I hope you do not leave the forum.  I actually enjoy your participation and respect your views generally.    I guess religion should not be discussed between us then?    I apologise if I hurt your feelings....had I considered your pm more carefully I perhaps would have been more tactful.  Perhaps you could apologise too to end this and start again? 

I agree this thread has strayed from the purpose of it.  KEF's thread is important so let's keep it as it was intended.

we increasingly live in a nanny state....let's not let the forum get like that.  Lately we have had at least one thread removed on a whim, members have left the forum, (I myself came close) others upset and I have been rebuked for my views. 

Almost everything written on the forum is respectful and inoffensive.  Essentially a garden forum it has expanded to include all sorts or weird and wonderful topics.

Not a mod.....a member of the forum said her "feelings were hurt" by my talk about christianity.  in fact my words were not offensive in any way.  Just said other people are as good if not better than most practising christianity......shucks, I've prob said too much already 

jo, feel so sorry for you that you were so upset. I am aware of another member almost driven out.   I'm a bloke....I can handle it....but, heck, we discuss everything here don't we?    Don't we?  

"Supporting one another" is fine but censoring topics like politics, religion....blimey folks!  I was told not to mention GARDENING on the hello forkers thread.  Some of us like to talk about politics, religion, climate change, IS,,the floods, etc.  I don't read every thread here.....we can participate or not in whatever thread we choose.
