You're welcome Wonky!

There's never enough grass cuttings for mulch. And lawn clippings are brilliant because they are short. I bet if you put the word around your neighbours would gladly contribute theirs as well. My neighbours put theirs out in bags for me to collect. Be careful that none of them use that horrible 'Weed & Feed' stuff though - it could cause problems for you.

A bumper crop in the making there Dave! As these little beauties can often produce up to the middle of November - if the weather is obliging - then you have every chance of getting a great crop, despite a late start and initial set-backs.

When the leader gets damaged the plants usually respond with a cluster of other leaders - as most plants do. It might have been a good idea for you to have pinched them out and left the strongest one. However, they will still produce for you, except from bushier and shorter plants.

I'm glad they've survived. A testimony to their vigour and strength - they don't give up easily!  ThU32:-)
