Clocks go forward tonight

Don't forget to put your clocks FORWARD tonight

Remember the old maxim, forward into autumn and back into spring. Always held me in good stead remembering those wise words

The essential thing to remember is each tuber needs a stem.  I would separate in spring. Dry off tubers well.  If sound just keep frost free over winter.

Won't argue Dove.  Want to borrow convertible again soon 

Done correctly MrBB won't lose any flowers

bizarre situation- what would you do?

I would deliberate for a few days then ask to speak to the powers that be.  Say what you have said here, talk about your frustration and disappointment as well as the hard work you have out in.  Then ask how they can "compensate" you in some way.

However, to get your allotment neighbour back seems attractive to you.  Diplomatic controlled expression I think.

Do you still look like that Lily?

Cheekily, my niece has pinched a baby pic of me to add to a calendar she makes for me every year.  To think, I have to see that for a whole month next year!  Mind you I was sooooooooooo beautiful just like you Lily   I haven't changed at all and still wear that nappy

Philadelphus is easy to prune.  But not now.

I would wait until it flowers in June then cut out flowered stems back to new shoots

You can then cut to,the base one or two old woody stems

Don't like the clocks changing in autumn.  It simply reinforces the onset of winter.

Don't forget folks.....hour FORWARD tomorrow night
