BL ... our condolences to your OH ... so very sorry.  


Hosta ... I was wide awake at 4 ish ... now I've been changing the bedding again (did it yesterday) ... we bought a new duvet cover and pillowslips online (dangerous being stuck on the sofa for 6 weeks) ... when they arrived we were doubtful about the colour but decided to go with it, washed them and put them on the bed ... the colour's wrong ... totally wrong .... can't live with it ... can't sleep restfully under it knowing it's wrong ... can't put up with it .... will give it to DD as it will be perfect for their guest room ... oh the trials and tribulations of being painters ..

Oh dear Nanny Beach. I do hope things improve quickly. But take photos anyway ... Your builders could claim off their own insurance In order to make compensation ... Or you could go to via Small Claims Court if they don't offer compensation and make good. 

help, plant dying

Hebe McKean has very narrow leaves - a bit like a rosemary. 


That plant looks very unhappy. I agree , repot it in a gritty welldraining loam and give it fresh air and sunshine. However, if it's been indoors itll need protection from hof sun to start with until it's acclimatised.

I'd go with Viburnum Bodnantense too. Although they flower mainly in the winter they do sometimes have a flower or two at other times of the year. Mine has a couple at the moment too
