 Re ds: I already have a climbing rose called Summer Wine and a honeysuckle growing up my old arch, nothing has changed except some judicious pruning

 The messy area at the bottom of picture leads to the another garden room and veg plot that still needs landscaping.

 hence why this Dr Ruppel is currently lying across my step. It needs moving to allow room for a pergola some time later this year.

Morning Forkers!

Constant drizzle today and pretty dark outside but the garden will thrive and gift me something new no doubt next time I get out in it.

Been working last few days so haven't seen much of the garden at all.

Morning forkers.

Up late this morning due to OH leaving me to sleep off my excessive tiredness. Got work this afternoon and its a sunny morning but prolly won't go out or I'll only find work to do.

Tom stayed in the coldframe last night, lid squeezed down as low as it will go. Toms are getting pretty tallish and already been repotted, so I am okay to do this right? I mean, obviously any threat of frost will chase them indoors again

Wintersong - so depressing about your fence - its not just the mindless damage, but the hassleof getting things put right again.  Can you protect your plants from hobnail boots with upturned buckets or hanging baskets??

Great idea!
