Morning to all 

Great day forecast and I have so many jobs to do including planting, DIY and homework 

A big thank you to OH for the miracle that is my new bathroom 

Sorry to hear of your work situation Flumpy, my boss spent all weekend flirting with me but it was attention flirting and joking stuff, the good kind if you like that sort of thing, never inappropriate which should always be reported, so stay strong and remember it's not your misinterpretation because as adults we all know the difference between my type and your type 

P.S Wonky, I have that Choisya featured on GW, it really is lovely and now I know it's not a beast to control, I have the perfect place for it 

Enjoy your day everyone

Quick hello from me, too tired to mention everything from reading back but gratz to Yvie and OH for 40 yrs, love to Reggie and his poorly belly and bad luck to Panda for over indulging but at least you didn't spit it out after tasting 

Need sleep after long shift  but lovely evening with OH watching IPL cricket

New perrenial digitalis has a snapped stem ;(

This is unfortunate but it's perennial, so it will certainly return next year and with patience, flower this year

I have perennial digitalis and find the only issue is their rate of growth does not match other perennials.  I have only managed one division in four years 

Clematis Pruning and Groups - Your Help Please

If in doubt, leave it out.

You won't kill a Clematis by doing nothing,  it will just lose it's shape gradually, and some flowering potential
