    Hello kitty. Welcome to the vine. We're you born in the early fifties? Great era for rock n roll! How cool.

    I was a decade later.

    Have fun on the vine.

    Loving my allotment!

    [QUOTE=Kittiwake;905987] 'cos my secateurs always seem to be at the opposite end of the stairs to me

    Hi Kittiwake and welcome from Sunny South Wales (but not today). As a gardener with a few more added years to you and 58 steps to my front door and another 70 or so to the top of the garden, may I recommend two pairs of secateurs, one at both ends!

    Ah, I've tried that but they ended up in the same place! Sounds like you need a pet donkey to ferry everything up and down for you. Do you have lots of terraces or is it mainly a slope?

    Noooo, I'm a late '50's baby but now in my early 50's so rock and roll passed me by. My earliest memory of a song was Cilla Black (but I try to block that out!)

    Thanks for the welcome guys. It's taking me a little while to get used to the structure of the forum so apologies if some of my posts look a little odd.
