Morning all.

Gardener down. ........ I could do without the cold in one nostril and a raging sore "one side of throat"...........

 That's exactly what I've got!!!  (must be an internet virus )

Get some soluble Panadol Actifast and some Difflam Spray (Benzydamine Hydrochloride).  You don't need a prescription, you can get it from most pharmacies - the nurse said it would help and it really has - you can use it every hour and a half if you need to - the antibiotics haven't had time to kick in yet but the spray and Panadol have at least dealt with the pain.

BL - don't think I'd be up to it by tomorrow  but thanks anyway   Let's wait and see what the weather's like in the coming week ...

Hosta, maybe that's it ... you're getting over-tired and your body somehow goes into overdrive ... like a tired and fractious toddler ... not that I'm likening you to one of those ............. I'll get my coat .........

MARYGOLD when you get taken to the 'blank page' go to the top right hand corner and click on the flower icon next to your name. You should then get a drop down menu with My Messages on it :-)

Sweet Rocket

There's one more option - whem I cut mine back in late summer it goes on the compost heap. When I use the compost for mulching little seedlings spring up. If they're in the 'wrong' place I move them ... Usually. This spring, what with 'family stuff' taking up a lot of time, I have a wonderful show of Sweet Rocket in the veg patch :-)

Morning all :). Had a better night just waking for soluble paracetamol and throat spray which really helped. 

Wet and drizzly here this morning so at least I'm not missing a gardening day. BL let me know when youre going to Classic Roses - if I'm germ free and don't have a parental probate meeting with brother I'd love to join you.

Wonky ((hugs)) I'm sure it'll all turn out for the good. Try not to worry. Xx

Russian Vine....

Absolutely fine if you have at least three acres - otherwise keep it out of your garden. There's one in the neighbouring garden which every year attempts to smother our large mature ash tree and we have to attack it with considerable vigour.
