Thanks for posting the photo, sounds like it's going really well although it also sounds exhausing. So have a rest when it's done

I've just asked him aym. He says that he broke the leaves of the aloe vera so you could get to the sticky gel and then dip the fresh cutting material into it and then just plant them. I've never tried it myself

Looks like the political discussion thread is here to stay on this forum. The vote didn't go the way I wanted but there we are, it's a democracy. So we all have to live with the consequences what ever they will bring.

I just heard on the radio that there's a bill or proposal abolishing the bursary schemes for student nurses. In it's place will be the student loan route. That's not going to help with recruitment of new British staff. In or out of the EU.
