Lyn, that's what you've all been paying your Council Tax, Income Tax and National Insurance contributions for all these years - to pay for the help when you need it. 

Nothing to do with the claiming culture.  It's just as much your entitlement as your State Pension - you claim that surely? 

If you listen to the Archers ....

Perhaps your louvres are on the side which gets the prevailing wind?

It is also worth considering the type of plants being grown - if they're hardy perennials they don't need to be in the warm. 

Too much warmth and not enough light will cause the seedlings to become etiolated and drawn and that is why the stems are too weak and they flop over.
