Have a look in Morrison's. The buckets they have flowers   delivered in seem to get put in bundles of five for a quid. Drill holes in the bottom. That size is great for so many things... tomato plants, spring bulbs shrubs etc.


Thought for Lyn

I'm sorry for your loss, Lyn. Now it's time to look after yourself a bit. You have gone above and beyond what anyone could expect in trying and difficult circumstances.

Looks ok. The stem will elongate as the flowers open.

Any multipurpose compost will do. Add a sprinkle of osmocote granules, to feed it through the season.

Hugs for Chicky, Lyn, Dove and Wonky, and I hope Pandas tooth hole is better. No alcohol  for a week for Panda, but I suspect the rest of you will need a stiff one.

Lynn, at least he is at home. Dad wanted to come home from the hospital, but with no extra care except from family, no special bed or hoist, it was never going to work. I hope he is peaceful now.

Best site for asparagus...

Asparagus wont care about the rubbish, but preparation for asparagus is everything. Mares tails or bindweed  in there would be a nightmare. I missed the bit about he already has 12 roots, so plot 2 would be favourite for me. Number three could still be hiding nasties.

I would use 2.

Actually I would grow something else on it this summer and be absolutely certain it is clean of any perennial weeds before planting asparagus next winter.

LYN, The syringe driver will have an injection in to be infused over a number of hours, usually twelve.   The nurse will usually come and change it. You should also have some top up medication if required. Most chemists will deliver medication, especially urgent stuff for palliative care. Just ask the surgery to sort it if you are not fussy about which pharmacy it comes from.

At this stage, mother in law got round the clock care free, as it is classed as end of life care. Ask the doctors how to get that put in place, before you crack.
