sore gums

I was warned by the dentist to be careful with Corsodyl - use in strict accordance with instructions and only when necessary because of an infection, as it can cause discolouration of teeth if overused..  

I dip my Tepe brushes in Listerine.

Good to see you Lily P - sounds like you've had your hands full ((hugs))

Back and shoulder are a bit sore now, so I'll flollop on the sofa for the evening - see you all in the morning - it feels quite good, snoozing away, knowing that everything is being well taken care of while we sleep as Pat will be awake and in charge

I've been thinking about Pdoc and Bushman and hoping they're ok - positive thoughts winging their way ((hugs)).

Sweet dreams Pat

I'm back - I've had 'cupping' on my back and shoulder - OH says my back looks as if I've been run over by a motor bike  I was rather hoping I'd look more like an Olympic swimmer  Apparently it shows up areas where there is poor blood supply to the muscles, and then helps to stimulate the blood flow in that area.

Cyclamen hardiness

Personally speaking I'd put it under the car port now - they really don't like being rained on.  

What is this plant.

It's one of the Malvaceae family - a cousin of the Common Mallow (which you'll have seen growing wild on banks and hedgerows), but I don't know which one.

Cyclamen hardiness

Cyclamen 'Sierra' are of the C. persicum type and are not hardy in the UK - they're happiest in a cool-lsh room in good light but out of direct sun.  

Water from the bottom - don't keep them too wet.

Not carrot.  They look much more like Phacelia - as you say, often grown as a green manure, also as a plant for bees as they love the flowers.

We've put the net over the pond, but the ash leaves are always later falling than most trees - we noticed on the way home yesterday that the lime trees along the Newmarket road have just started dropping their leaves and the pathways beneath are golden - they're the first to fall around here. 

Advice on a container hedge?
