Bad knees

Posted: 18/04/2016 at 09:41

My right knee has started given trouble, had a skiing accident when in my 30s. But I'm still at the ordinary kneeling pad stage. Tried knee pads but the straps cut in the back of my knees, as someone has already said.

But I know that sitting and leaning forward and down to weed is really bad for my back. Tried it, never will again. I'm surprised it has been recommended. Also the wheels and the general bulk make that piece of kit totally impractical.

Leggy petunia seedlings

I think they need more light. Pinching out will help.

Morning all.

Fruitcake lives near Marion and says she will look into it later. But Marion has family so I expect she's taken care of. It's just that she posts everyday on her thread.

Sun - at last! But frost this morning. I'd put some Salvia farinacea and penstemon seedlings into a cold frame and they are OK this morning.

No gardening, more rain, garden all squelchy.  Not warm either.

Fruitcake lives in Bristol, I've PM'd her. Maybe Marion is with her family. But if it was planned I think she would have said so on her thread.

That's worrying, Marion is so regular with her posts. I wonder if the editor of this forum knows how to contact her or if she has friends in the Bristol Botanical Garden of the Alpine Society.

Some of them are gorgeous, but most are in Wales, none on the English south coast.

Most of the people in the gardening club are English, it's on the border Charente/Dordogne, lots of English living there.
