Thing is, Dove...my eyesight was never in jeopardy, the surgery was to the surrounding area.

Btw, I will ask at my next appointment....trouble is, it isn't for another year and I'll probably have forgot by then.

Ah, I see, fidget......I scrolled back to the beginning of this thread and couldn't see any reference to a trip.

Perhaps I'm a tad too sceptical sometimes....but something is puzzling just now. Recently I was treated at a local eye hospital (couple of operations in fact) ......and now I'm receiving loads of correspondence from the RNIB asking for donations.

I have never subscribed to the RNIB, or have any idea where they have obtained my full postal address.

Is there a link? Maybe not, but it's strange!

Could I just add to this and recommend a  DVD of a series of half hour programs made by the BBC in 1987 called 'The Victorian Kitchen Garden'?......Absolutely compulsive viewing!

I've been trying to persuade peeps not to divulge too much personal information about themselves and their families on these forums for years.....in fact on another forum I was actually accused of being "like some secret agent" because I didn't choose to join in their communal disclosing of personal information.

I was going to say the same as Dove.....but didn't want to be the party pooper.

Glad it has given you so much pleasure, hogweed.....I've had a copy for years.

Wonder if you would like to see this brief slideshow I took during a visit to his Barnsdale garden......apols to those who have already seen it.

Will we ever be over his loss?

Probably most gardeners would suggest picking off any young fruitlets that form in the first few years after planting. The reason for this is to encourage the tree to develop its full branch framework before fruiting proper begins.
