Gardening Book

Orchid Lady, good quality second hand books can be a good option, ie from Amazon, ebay.  You can find good quality used books for much less.  I have bought a few like this and if they turn out to be not as good as I might have expected I've not wasted too much money, and if they are what I'm looking for, I've got myself a bargain.  Must add that I've not been disappointed yet.

Tray14, your plant looks to be the double of one I recently acquired from my parents garden.  They told me it is a weeping willow, but don't know the exact variety, sorry.

Mike, I have just read through all the posts on this thread - what an amazing response of support and love for you (& like SGL your last one brought a tear or two ).  Having read some of your posts on gardening I understand the the respect you have earned on this forum.  Wishing you the very best of luck with your treatment, just imagine us all there with you - well maybe not all at the same time could be a little cramped.  xx.

Wow, thanks everyone for your greenhouse comments.  Haven't had much time of late to check back here and it was a lovely surprise to find so many new replies.  I have my base in place now so just need to decided what on the greenhouse.  All the above will be invaluable in my decision.  Thanks everyone
