 for risk of causing another storm in a tea cup... Off topic....this is the weather thread where posters at the very least make a contribution about the weather and related gardening stuff , I do hope we aren't now going to start talking about cake because of the issues on other threads

Garlic

The shoots will survive under several inches of snow, hard to believe the first time grown but providing the plants have had chance to develop some roots underground when planted in autumn they romp away come spring.

I'm given to understand the plants need at least 30 days of frost to divide into cloves, me doesn't think that's consecutive days but I'm happy to be wrong.

Black spot on roses

I too have a problem with black spot on a climbing rose - Pauls Scarlet.

Honeysuckle grows close by and that too gets black spots on it's leaves. Both planted about the same time the honeysuckle has romped away over an arch but the rose hasn't done what the packet says. It should grow to 200 to 300cm, it's going to be several years before that happens at the current rate of growth

Seemed to have missed the storm here, up to now at least.Hardly any rain where I was today but the nearer I got to home this evening the windy it got, with rain and a heavy hail storm.

Very clam first thing so friend went back to Aberdeen and had a reasonably good journey.

Love your pumkins Stacey, a friend who left today brought one with a bat carving in it and the other was the grim reaper with an owl sat on the branch of a tree.  

She's got the book on order for the templates.

We've had heavy rain today and it was very windy early evening.

A friend is travelling back to Aberdeen on route from Cornwall, staying this evening. The weathers been very poor down there all week, she's worried about travelling back tomorrow we've checked the forcast but it doesn't seem much better on Tuesday and Wednesday. Gusts of 37, Shap is likely to be the worst place to travel over, it can be pretty bleak even in the summer.

On a positve note, it's looking like I've extra guests for the next few days.
