I was prescribed iron tablets years ago when I was pregnant. I had fainted in Church and the doctor thought I was anaemic. But I felt so rotten on them I had to stop taking them. Turned out I have a naturally low blood pressure which went even lower when pregnant.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Now I've sent a post I've suddenly had an email for this thread although no one has written in it since me!

Rose Arch Collapsed

You could cut back a couple of the oldest stems, 8 is a good number.

The Daily Telegraph and their readers agree with me that Helen and Georgia should not have been in the dance off and Anita should have gone. The judges thought that too. there has also been talk that the programme is rigged.

I agree, best to hard prune it, then it won't get wind rock and it will be easier when you want to erect the new arch and re-train it. It will grow again. Better for it to happen now than in summer.

Tetley, Arthur's post was written in July 2013 and he hasn't posted anything since August 2015. I welcomed him too in 2014, not realising the date!

Morning all. Was thinking of going Christmas shopping but it's a lovely day, would it be better spent in the garden? 9 grandchildren to buy pressies for.

I thought this thread had fizzled out as I haven't had an email notification about it. I haven't posted since the summer, but I've done lots of gardening in the autumn, replacing summer plants in pots with winter and spring ones, tidying up and manuring the veggie garden, cutting down and weeding the long border and planting tulips and spring flowers in it, clearing up and weeding the end bed. Have started the upper middle bed, still lots to do.

Just had a quick skim through to see what you've all been up to.

what plants will you use from the garden as Christmas decoration?

Only white and static for me too.

I'm sooo disappointed and shocked by the two chosen to be in the dance off. My two favourites. Helen was top of the leaderboard last week, Georgia is consistently one of the best. When on Len's lens you could easily see that Anita's feet were all wrong and I think she is brittle. I liked her to begin with but I don't think she is as good as the others and it was time she went. Helen and Georgia should have been safe. The Great British Public are a fickle lot. Helen can't help being pretty, it's not fair to dismiss her as a Barbie Doll.
