This is so moving, must be so difficult for Lyn. Have you contacted MacMillan nurses, Lyn? They were great when my father was dying, but he didn't have cancer, he had a brain haemorrhage and was in a coma. They were so helpful with their support for us when he was dying. 

Verdun's Mum reminds me of my Mum when she got frail.

I found DG less irritating talking about wild gardens than he was when younger and designing expensive gardens.

Snow candles look lovely and so simple to do, unlike the fantastic hand! Now I just need some snow - but I'd rather not!

How to remove HUGE shrub

Posted: 21/01/2015 at 14:22

We did what obelixx said to start with, then we used the garden tractor mower to pull it out. Make sure you leave some trunk behind to pull on, whether manually or with a machine.

Alan said that when he makes and uses the compost it works well. I wonder if the manufacturers who produce it in bulk have changed anything. Here is the article in the Daily Mail.

Morning all.

-4° frosty.

Post service here is OK but courier is hopeless. They can never find my house even when they have written instructions. Sat Nav doesn't work but they insist on using it even when told it takes them to the wrong house. Took 3 weeks to get a package from M&S.

About butter, afraid I don't like anything else for spreading on bread, toast or crumpets whether it's fattening or bad for you or not. Tried other things, yuk! But I often use olive oil for cooking, or peanut oil as it can reach a high temperature before burning than others and it's non-saturated.

Have watched Britain's Best Gardens. One of them was East Ruston Old Vicarage Gardens which some of you visited last year.
