Morning Daisy, Dove and Clari 

Clari - re your sickie co worker. Isn't it infuriating when people are so thoughtless? Hope you can find something more fulfilling. Take your fury out on it all with your paintbrush!

Daisy I'd thin k you could make a fortune with your Verb. bonariensis. last time I was in a GC they were charging about £8 for a 2l pot 

Dove you're spending too much time listening to wildlife and gazing into ponds...

I'm just jealous!

Morning MrsG and all to  follow.

Dampish here and work for me 

I squashed about 8/9 huge snails last night Ggirl. Best way to get rid of them although I do sometimes chuck them into the road to give them a fighting chance  

Soil types

This is a popular misconception about rhodies and pieris etc. They don't need acid soil - they just don't like alkaline. My soil is neutral - all the gardens I've had were neutral and all these plants grow like mad in them. Add some ericaceous soil when you plant if you're worried but all these plants will benefit from being in the ground rather than pots

I have  a neighbour like that SP....

Perhaps a cold compress - with some ice - would give some relief for now. It will no doubt keep you awake tonight so sit back and enjoy being fussed over

Have you added something to it BL? I should think you need it..

It's Bicarb for wasp stings I think - or is that bee stings...

Do you know what nipped you SP? Sounds very sore anyway. 

Should really make dinner but I've run out of energy

Verdun  - I'm really confused now because I always thought you were Jonathon Creek. Now it seems you're posing as several other people - Dike of Cornwall, Duke of Gloucester and Monty Don. 

I'd get my coat but  I've just come in and taken it off and the rain's gone off too
