Hello folks - I'm back   Son has deleted things and installed things and laptop's behaving itself a bit better now. 

Horrid weather out there, really dark and rainy and a bit blustery.  OH has cleared the land under the tree that's to be felled on Friday, so that branches can be dropped etc - hope the weather improves so it doesn't cause a cancellation. 

Hosta - I refuse to be terrorised, but I would much prefer it if you and your OH go somewhere other than Sharm for your holidays for the time being please ((hugs))  the same goes for all other Forkers of course

Keep the compost damp and regularly stirred.  Give the sides a sharp bang with a stick or spade every time you go past (they don't like it) and don't put potato peelings in there - rats will move heaven and earth to get at potatoes (my brother's a potato farmer -he can tell some stories about what rats will do to get at them).

Do you have cats - are they hunters?

I think they're sweet chestnut too - we had several trees in the grounds of the offices where I used to work - I never needed to buy chestnuts for Christmas - I miss them now

Dd - my two used to have Lego for Easter instead of chocolate eggs - they had quite enough chocolate from grandparents and both used to request the Lego instead

911 for mini money tree

Hello Natalie

That's not what I know as a Money Tree here in the UK so I'm not sure what you've got there, but it's not very happy.  I'm not usually the one who gives up on a plant, but I think you've been given an impossible task - I think it's too far gone.

I think I'd ditch that one and get another plant.  Sorry.
