Glad you had a good time. Mallaig was stunning. surprised how busy a harbour it is!!!!

Did you meet a certain polldark gent per chance dove?

Apparently he was on Bodmin - but I took my own Poldark with me so no problem   and we also visited Hosta and his lovely OH who cooked us a wonderful brunch and Lyn and her lovely OH were there also.  

Strange problem....

Get a couple of Neutradol jars and put them near the cooker - they neutralise smells without making the house smell like a bordello and it doesn't seem to affect people with dodgy chests

Strange problem....

The active ingredient in Resolva is glyphosate - this takes quite a while for its effect to become apparent - usually up to three weeks - sorry but my money is on weedkiller drift

Did you shield the conifers from the spray?  Sprays give off a fine invisible mist that spreads and drifts in the air - years ago I carefully targetted a few dandelions on the lawn ... and ended up with a dead patch a foot across

Sounds as if the wedding went splendidly BL - Fidget has posted some pics ... somewhere ...

Dd, you have my sympathy ((hugs)) - I remember trying to milk my goats with a bandaged broken thumb - don't think I've ever felt so frustrated - it was a useful lesson when I went on to work with seriously disabled youngsters - if I felt that frustrated over such a little thing for what I knew would be a limited period of time, how do they feel when their disability impacts on everything they do ......... for ever .............. It explains moodiness, tantrums etc

It's a prunus - my guess is that it'll sucker freely - especially if you disturb the roots a bit.
