A little while ago I posted here praising Stafford Hospital's care of my sister in her final view of recent media coverage of poor/horrific care of patients in care homes I would just like to relate my sister's care in her care home.

In her care home she was cared for extremely well and was happy and contented at all times. Two of her carers attended her funeral and were in tears along with close relatives.

I suppose I just wanted to say that whilst not being newsworthy, there is a lot of very good people out there.

But David, wasn't it you who enlarged the bird and re-posted it?

I asked for approval for taking the liberty of changing someone else's photo, in the absence of that approval I thought it appropriate to remove it.

Btw, I didn't enlarge it.

I think Rachel seems very warm and natural, not 'posh' at all.  In fact, all the presenters are good in their own way and I do like to see beautiful gardens, just need an hour which includes hands on gardening too.


I've met Rachel and can say she is 'very warm and natural' and easy to talk to. Also (contrary to some beliefs) she is a well qualified horticulturist.

Why May 12th David, come on we need more facts  I'm not doing runner beans though but have already sown my dwarf French beans 


Well, I didn't go into detail, OL, cos it's basically about GW.  But, (as you ask) runner beans are frost tender and sowing mid-May means they should emerge after the risk of frost and in temperatures suitable for them to thrive.

That's the trouble with gardening, there isn't a one size fits all.

I think the best piece of advice I could offer, is not to be too eager by sowing/planting stuff too early In the season and definitely avoid buying those frost tender plug-plants appearing in the GCs in March.

Btw, May 12th is the gardeners traditional day for sowing runner bean seed in the open ground.....they've been available as potted plants for weeks in the GCs.
