Fairygirl....the spray tan isn't needed by us Cornish 

Tina, no I don't watch corrie so I guess I didn't get your joke..but I'm sure it was very good.  I bet everyone else got it though!   I'm impressed with your determination re your painting though.  Do you sing your famous songs as you paint?

Robbie, if you can't plant them in the ground then use decent size pots.  Grow bags not deep enough.  And I would use John innis compost .  And regular weekly or twice weekly feeding.  I would erect a wigwam of canes over them.  Sure you can't find space in the garden or on a fence?

Hiya jennie

Not seen these myself but have heard of them over past couple of years.  They can cause a lot of damage I thnk.  Can you pick them off?  Or use a systemic insecticide.

And I bet you will enjoy eating those currants with our Cornish cream!

Can you plant it out later into the ground?  Then you may get 18 currants next year

A miracle, well I think so.

Welcome clem

On a shady wall or fence Nellie moser is very good.  What climbers do you already have Clem?  Scent Important?  I have a nice variegated jasmine.  I also have 2 different honeysuckles over an, perhaps 2 or 3 different honeysuckles for differing colour and scent?  How much fence do yOu have left to cover?
