Brilliant colour Brum.  Just can't grow the dissectum varieties to that quality down here.  Just a mile or so inland though huge impressive specimens abound.

No clematis expert but no, I don't think it is busy.  May be wrong.  EV flowers most of the summer for me too.  Looks nice though.  EV is not so purple, is it?

KEF,  it's a love hate thing with it.  Hate it now.  Don't want any of it.  It goes deep to emerge amongst a hellebore I have nearby.  Hopefully I've removed it all now.  Not sure about a pot though.....maybe a spot somewhere where it can be restrained or maybe with geraniums.   

Windows 8.1 - a warning !

David I think you can still buy win 7 desktops from currys online.  At least you could not so long ago.  Cheaper too.  Still like to have my desktop too.

A computer guy suggested not to upgrade to win 8.  Not worth the bother and not 100% yet.  

(love pc World etc ...seeing all the latest models of laptops, etc .  Love gadgets.  Always tempted by the newest "developments" ....got a 3d plasma couple years back but don't bother with the 3d.  It's a great tv but I needed a sound system...more money!  Hopefully I'm a little more realistic.......hmmmmmm!  Have you read about the 4000 pixel tvs out now?  The picture is so realistic and........... )

Serious stuff......no! Really

Mischievous girls!    Well, Adam faith may give me away.  People used to say I looked like him and I hated that.  He's 5' nothing amd I'm 6' plus.  I remember the flower power era, the revolutionary songs and I went to school with Horatio Nelson.  Gosh!  He was a scream.  

Beware of companies offering vouchers and cash back.

Don't feel stupid Tina I am.  

I was almost caught out.  Because it is Argos we naturally assume it is above reproach etc so,when they advertise this discount we think  it's going to be a discount from them.  Never "something for nothing " is my motto.  Beware free gifts...there aren't any

However. Well done Tina to make everyone aware.

At any time Redechan.  Easier if there's top growth though. However dig nice big clump with plenty of soil intact and replant without too much disturbance
