Yes ... I really do keep it on except at bed and bathtime.  Promise 

The other day OH came home from the city with some Bodyshop Peppermint Foot Lotion ... bless him!  A very gentle application is absolute bliss 

Which plants would you relegate to the compost heap... for good?

There were several threads on White Feather a few years back - I don't think anyone who grew it was pleased with it ... this one stuck in my mind ... 

If Bowdens can't grow it then I probably can't either

Hang lots of bird feeders near to your plants ... the blue tit families will find the aphids as they queue up for the feeders.

I find that figs need lots of water in order to produce leaves.

It's nice to share our gardening, and at the moment I'm on the sofa with a broken foot, so I've got time on my hands 

Any ideas?

There's a glitch on the forum at the moment and photos won't upload ... the tech team are looking into it and NoraGW will let us know as soon as it's fixed.
