OMG , punkdoc.

I know you wanted to get away from the neighbour , but... OMG.

I'm glad I didn't know where you were, your wife must have been terrified.

 it must make Sheffield A & E on a Saturday night before Christmas look like a picnic in the park.

 All I can say is, if you can do that , you can do anything.

Enjoy the bottle of wine.

 I think you deserve a fat rascal or two.

Decidiuous cuttings

If they have roots, then unheated is the best way. Do not allow the roots to freeze , but  they do not need heat.

I had some  not up to scratch bulbs, about 8 in 200. I emailed them and had a replacement within a week.  Try emailing customer services, quoting your order number.

Potato seed from all over Europe.

Scotch certified seed is best.

Try some adult bonjela for the soreness.  Lack of Vit B12 can cause sores at the corner of the mouth.

If you have a final position for it, I would put it in the ground. If not a final position, plunge it in soil in the pot, up against a wall if possible. It will need protection to stop the roots freezing, but the top will lose its leaves until spring.

I placed two orders for bulbs last month, a week apart. They were delivered a day apart. I thought that a few bulbs were not up to scratch and emailed them.They replied within 24hours. They were replaced within a week. If you email their customer services, or phone them, you may get quicker service than snail mail.

Second one might be Aloe ferox, used for making bitter aloes.
