Bio freak,  since your bushes are only 2 years old they will move easily.

gooseberry ice cream?   Sounds wonderful

Programmes recorded but I did catch Alan Titchmarsh.  One garden was superb for me with lots of plants I like and grow.  Lots of foliage, conifers,etc but didn't see any grasses.  

I think we shouldn't complain....2 garden progs right now!   And I'm beginning to get the gardening buzz now......

Well allium.  I am made of sterner stuff.    I jolly well will for certain...almost certainly....stick to my resolution.  I will only visit gc to grab a cuppa and plants will no longer tempt me.

I'm not going to buy any more plants this year....a great challenge in itself.  Apart from a,hydrangea limelight, mahonia caress and geranium hocus pocus over past couple of days I will not be tempted again. 

It's my birthday

Gemma I hope you haven't been drinking.  I strongly disapprove of ladies and alkehole.  The more they drink the less there is for the men.  

Vine weevils

I think I have the fine weevil situation reasonably under control.  A combo of provado, at the correct times, digging up plants like heucheras every year or so and cleaning them plus the odd night vigil with a torch seeking the adults seems to be effective.
