Gardening with the enemy

Victoria, I would just tell the horrid old man that the rate of TB has rocketed in recent years because of spitting. When I was a small child, circa 1952 I can remember being on the top of a bus in Hampstead (there's posh) I had just started to master reading and asking my mother what 'hawking and spitting' were as there was a sign on the bus forbidding it. I came across both when working on a building site in the Middle East and didn't eat for 3 days as I felt so sick! Eventually I got used to it.

Fg; please tell me what you can tie the string to in a Halls Silverline Costafortune with no after sales service Greenhouse?

I was looking at it today and thinking ;I will have to drill holes in the aluminium struts or use clothes pegs? There is absolutely nothing to fasten anything to.

Surely these are slow or struggling?

As a mural painter, a lot of my jobs were on building sites (after they had put the roof on) and you could never meet a more lovely, helpful and amusing lot than builders. Though I did work on an American site once and did not understand their humour at all and they didn't understand mine
