I just have to post this, I'm so pleased. Despite being 'bumped off' several times by over enthusiastic young gardeners over the last year or so, my poor, long suffering tayberry is sending out several new shoots. Titchy little shoots, but shoots nevertheless. Three cheers. No fruit this year, of course, but I now hope to get some next year, please, pretty please.
Just being able to train the shoots along the wires my dad so kindly put on the fence for me would be great!
I think I will get one of those slate plant markers and write on it 'I am not a weed - please do not kill me!'
