my deleting ?

Hm, not going to do that again - deleted some from page 10 and some of my most recent PMs disappeared - just like Cangran said.  I'm just going to leave them alone from now on.

Hi jess

I usually find it takes a good 12 months to get a reliably rooted plant.

Modern Technology etc.

Mike - I know you've had a lot to contend with, but try not to see this year as being all bad - after all, the doctors cured your bladder cancer - that's a fantastic thing to have happened

Hi Stanley

Look for Flowers of Sulphur - it's certainly available online from Amazon. 

Never used it myself and didn't lose many to rot, and in this garden I've only got one dahlia at the moment.

I think you can only see 10 pages worth of messages - once they're full the rest go into some unseen pages - if you delete some of the later ones then the earlier ones reappear.  I think that's how it works

Hello Mike

I like the belt and braces approach and I have a paper copy of most of my friends' email addresses - just in case.

You do know how to enlarge the image on the screen to make it easier to see don't you?  There are lots of tips, tricks and gadgets to help people with dodgy eyesight to use their computers. 

I had a colleague at work who had very poor eyesight but she was perfectly able to do everything on the computer that the rest of us could, with just a few tweaks to the formatting etc.

To cut everything down, or leave.

Hi Logan

My Salvia greggii have just about stopped flowering but I'm not going to cut them back before Spring - they've made nice bushy mounds and hopefully that will help protect the crowns from frost damage. 

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

When Pa was last on a ward (last Christmas )  he had "Thickened liquids and puréed foods only.  Otherwise NIL by mouth." at the head of his bed.  Any ordinary food or drink could kill him.

Body Pump sounds quite alarming DD

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

Lawn raking is another thing to put on the To Do list - moss has appeared from nowhere!   I usually leave it until early spring, but this year I think it needs attacking before then
