Good suggestion Bob - you could mix horticultural grit or perlite with the JI No 1 at a ratio of one part grit to  parts compost.

I would pot on geranium cuttings into John Innes No 1 loam-based conpost which will promote growth.

Hope that helps

It obviously had ill effects on the Leaf Miners    I wouldn't use it on the fruit or veg patch in case it did the same to me as it did to them

I can breathe ok with my mouth closed ... but my ears are totally stuffed up and my chest is full of gunk (sorry ) ....... according to OH, the stuffed up drippy nose comes later ... my Olbas Oil tissue is more as a preventative .......

It is strange isn't it Chicky? We must all be very like minded people.

I was concerned when I posted, that I might be upsetting people, but it seems there is quite a lot of agreement.

Much warmer today, so have been pottering.

 Putting two and two together (and probably making 150 ) my impression was that she'd lived with a very dominant partner for a long time and eventually, for some reason, had made a break ......... however she was still hugely lacking in confidence and very unsure of expressing her own tastes and style ... what happened in the programme was that she began to develop a bit of confidence and to learn that nothing has to be irrevocable ... pots seemed a very good way forward for her.  She was irritating ............... but nevertheless I still liked her ... she was like a chrysalis with the butterfly just beginning to emerge

Make a hedgehog 'gate' at the bottom of the fence panels - we lived in an inner city street of  Victorian terraces with tiny back yards and secure gates, but we had hedgebogs and frogs visiting because they could gain access through the 'hedgehog gate'
