Parsnip chips are good Just cut the parsnip into thin sticks, deep fry and enjoy as a second veg with all meats, but  very good with beef

Should have said I was writing about David Austin Catalogue.

Another of his is Graham Thomas , a beautiful golden yellow, named for the great Rosarian It makes a wonderful show I have grown it without problems for many years

Taking a step sideways. In the autumn, at the end of Aug-Sept when the new catalogue is out .it usually has an offer in it e.g. freepostage or buy2 get one free.. Of course they may not have offers this year but if you  are thinking of buying it is worth sending for a catalogue in a few weeks time. It has  super photographs in too!

Earlier this year I bought some on Ebay these had articles which were of particular interest. I too take mag to the surgery and also to the hospital where they are much appreciated. If you have an allotment society why not take  some there where for a small amount from resale will boost funds for the society

Friends tell me how things are doing and my husband dead heads, at least that is what he says he is doing for which I am greatful Prior to my accident the thought of him gardening was not on the cards!

Old and tangled Lilac - what to do?

treehugger80 has given advice  using methods we used in our then garden a few years ago. It worked and as we removed the crossed branches we could see a shape developing and we had a good crop of flowers. Once the tree has flowered it is important to remove the dead flower heads

Back to the beginning!    I had to move my spindle tree out of season 2 years ago. I kept it well watered , half  a can a day. Eventually most of the leaves dropped, some remained to colour up in the autumn, but it survivied and last year and this is in good shape. I am sure with the care you have given it it will be fine.

Please help me before I do something I regret !!

Lots of good advice above. Another idea is to join your local allotment society there you will find composts and seeds of all sorts, often plants will be available and you will meet some super local gardeners who I'm sure will be able to offer you advice
