Brilliant news

The bud on the top of Tilly 2 has erupted into what is the start of being a small shoot of its own!  A plant which was starved of nutrients and water might have difficulty bringing a bud to shoot, so this suggests that I haven't pointlessly killed thirteen shoots from my bramble.  Biology has its nasty side - a natural consequence of experimenting on live organisms - so it's always nice when you can see that the experiment is definitely going to go forward without any unnecessary suffering or death.

Pics of the bud will be posted here just as soon as I find my camera.
