Christmas Present Fail

Wonky will remember the royal blue ribbed 'petite' tights I was given by a member of the 'ex inlaws', the quarter-used bottle of aftershave given to her brother by the widow of the man who received it from said brother the previous year , and the already coloured in colouring book that she received from the same person when she was a child

Frankie, hints are no good .......... you have to ISSUE INSTRUCTIONS!!!   

My lot have been trained over the years - vouchers are the way to go - I have received National Gardening Vouchers and some of those rectangular printed ones with a picture of the Queen on the front with a note that these are also 'Gardening Vouchers' and I have also received a beautifully drawn voucher stating that I can cash it in for a specified number of hours of labour from my Under Gardener

Another family member knows that I always welcome Amaryllis bulbs and has supplied accordingly

Charlie   Perhaps, rather than making a series of individual queries,  if you could tell us what it is you're trying to achieve in the long term, we could advise you on the best course of action to get what you're after.

DD - I feel for you - my OH can't cope with hyacinths indoors so since we've been together I've not grown them ...    And re your back - you should compare notes with Wonky - she gets problems with her sciatic nerve if she's not careful!
