DD ((hugs)) sounds like you're doing brilliantly, all things considered.  Take it easy while you can

BL - I remember meeting you and OH - it was a lovely day

LilyP ((hugs)) for little one and family ... and you too of course. 

Wonky ((hugs)) xx

Fairy, you'd better wander around the garden calling Nora ... perhaps she'll make herself known

I've just spent an annoying few minutes reporting a phishing scam to Apple - some low life emailed me an invoice purporting to come from them and hoping that I'd put my card details into it - apparently I bought some sort of 'game' in the wee small hours ... as if

I was awake for ages too - we could all have had a chat - very unusual for me not to go to sleep as soon as my head hits the pillow, and I hate it when it happens. I think it's usually a result of too much dozing on the sofa. 

I think that little back yard is probably quite sheltered, but I saw several plants that I thought will need a lot of 'hay and fleece'.  It did however get me looking at the hardier ginger lilies ... There's a supplier just up the road from here ...

Let us know how it goes. A photo of it covered in blooms in the summer would be good.

A scattering of a slow acting organic fertiliser such as Fish, Blood & Bone will be good. 

Later in the season you may well find a new long shoot or two appearing from the base - train them towards the horizontal as well. 

In a few years' time you can rejuvenate the plant by taking out the oldest stem or two - the newer ones will replace them.
