Verdun , I hope you colour coordinate your pegs?

I don't know if Verdun does, but if I'm using the plastic pegs I do

But I like the wooden pegs the best

Growing plants in sterile medium

Hospital wards now don't allow patients to have vases of fresh flowers by their beds because the water in the vase can harbour bacteria, and I imagine that it's the danger of infection while her immune system is damaged due to chemo etc that the doctors are worried about. 

While I understand that you want to cheer her up and help her get back to a normal life, as she's been so very poorly I'd really take the doctors' advice on board. 

Maybe there's other ways of helping her enjoy plants etc. while she's getting her strength and immune system back - planning new planting schemes, looking at specialist seed catalogues, making a list of gardens to visit in the spring?

I'm looking forward to helping Mark with his gardening - do you think he's into roses, salvias, honeysuckle etc, or is he more of a veg man

The problem with being close to the city centre is that land is so expensive and nurseries/garden centres need a fairly large area!  I'm afraid that start-up costs/overheads will be high

Mark, please excuse my cynicism - we get a lot of  advertising spam posted on here - do you have any commercial/financial involvement with the company you're 'advertising'?

It's very unusual for anyone other than a Spammer to make their first post advertising a non-gardening product - Spammers usually find this site by Googling the item they're selling - in this case it looks as if you've googled 'rotary washing lines' and found this site - hence your post.

If I'm wrong and you found this site because you've an interest in gardening, then please accept my apologies
