Hi Chris 25,im not long out of hos,went in ,in a wheelchair had an op on mi spine  ( neck) and now on 2 crutches, sometimes one if im feeling ok, so i understand how difficult gardening is on wheels, and yet i also know how the gardening helps in trying to overcome the probs, even on wet days im in the greenhouse, and watching the cuttings come on is the best it all calms me down a bit and takes my mind of the other probs , so good luck Chris happy gardening to all Sunny erein Norfolk

Hi Chriss, many years ago a team of flat roof men were mending a friends roof, while we were having coffee the youngest lad spilled the tar pot over his arm, my friend doused the arm under the cold tap ,cut of a big  Alo leaf sliced it down the middle flatways  and wrapped it around the burn, the roof was finished,and the men were gone about a month  later she told me the lad had come back to thank her for her help,he said the doctor was amazed at the condition of the burn when he treated it and said he had seen Aloe used this way before, So there you go Alo Alo Alo.i think its time for me to get another one nice plants.
