Good luck mike. I had skin cancer, but it was caught in time (too much sun whilst gardening). Never give up no matter how bad things seem, and always look to the future, re plan your garden and give yourself purpose, the human body can heal itself. Even in the bad moments be determined you can beat cancer.


Snap! Dave, me too (same reason).....I've had  five eye operations (or surrounding area to be precise) over the past 18 months., but pleased to say that everything is well now and no more appointments for another year.

Hi David, yes all well just been very busy, a couple of friends asked about me so I thought it best to put minds at rest, not pushing up daisies.

This forum is addictive I only intended to dip in and out.


 Really great to see you, Frank.....have you down as Bruce Forsyth's replacement on Strictly.

'Forum addictive'....never a truer word!

Well, Frank, how nice is it to see you around on the forum again......hope you are keeping well.

The dog rose has pleasant childhood memories for me.



Growing Sweet Peas

No wonder I have patience, no wonder do I want you people to succeed.....I could get drunk on your enthusiasm.

Believe me, I do appreciate how confusing it must be when some plants need TLC (frost tender etc) and others (like sweet peas) can be ruined by it.

Thanks, KEF.....although it still doesn't give an accurate appreciation of the size of it.

Tracey - Please do try to visit Chatsworth if you get the chance....I've visited many of these country mansions in my time, but Chatsworth is the very best......breath-taking, inside & out.

Don't worry about it, Snowdrop....nothing you have done is irretrievable.

I would say, successful growing of sweet peas is as difficult as we care to make it.

At just under a metre high, this is probably the biggest lump of amethyst I've ever seen....I spotted it during a visit to Chatsworth House.
