Mystery Plant

Give it a feed, a water, and a mulch of compost or bark, but not touching the crown, or growing point.

It will probably survive and may flower. However in  Nottingham, I have had one good crop in 20 years. Most years a few set and the squirrels steal them while green, just to eat the kernels. I've cut it down. Apples are a safer bet that far north.

I know what you mean, lyn.

After the mother in law was put on end of life care, and given three months to live, she was taken off all her medication, and rallied. Five years later , when she finally died at 90, we plan the first holiday in four years, and my dad is taken ill.

Do we go or do we stay?

Hostafan, do yours flower? I read that tree dahlias are harder to get to flowering in our climate. As I cant get acidanthera to flower, I think I will stick to bishops children.

I like the levington pro range best, but it is  not easy to get hold of. It is peat based.  Most multipurpose compost is just recycled green waste with added fertiliser, bits of broken pot, plastic and the occasional nail. I object to having to sieve   the rubbish out before using it.

Verdun, my dad is the same. Wont eat, drinks little, wont use the walker and so falls.  Ambulance has been out three times in the last week, they just get him up and back into bed. Then he tells the doctor that everything is ok. So nothing gets done. My mum is ready to pull her hair out, she gets no sleep because dad wont stay in bed at night, wont use night drainage bags, at the end of the day, he has had a good innings. If he wont help himself, and goes against all advice, there  is nothing we can do. I am about to go on holiday, the other side of the world,   I  doubt he will last until I get back.

Ground Cover Question

You really need something more angular. Slate will slide over each other and end up at the bottom of the slope.
