Well, they're in

The vines that is.

No prizes for planting them in a straight line but, hey ho, I can train them later.

And apparently the green wax covering is normal; the vine will shrug it off as it grows. We'll see.

Glad you are now meeting your aspirations to be a vineyard!

It's good to know that the wax is normal. I've never heard of it or seen it like that. Very interesting.

Martin :0)

Nope, me neither and there was no mention of it from Marshalls. Mind you, they didn't mention anything else either so at least they've been consistent!!

Or maybe the terrifically hot spring and summer will melt the wax! :)

Hadn't thought of that! Fingers crossed, as always, for a hot summer!

I'll put myself forward to be a taster for the first wine tasting then Woody!
I'm also feeling knackered and lazy after catching up on what you've been up to down yon 'lottie whilst I've been up to ....bugger all really!

The list is long before there'll be wine to taste! Like:

* See if the b#gg#rs grow first
* Train them
* Let them grow again NEXT YEAR
* Pick 'em
* Learn how to make wine (bit fundamental, that!!)

And then you're on the list to be a taster!!
