Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends - part 2

Just had a call from Devon Services, they are putting out to an agency, as he doesn't meet the criteria for free care. Or any night sittings. That, apparently is only for cancer patients.
So that's about 20.00 per hour. Worth it I suppose, I will get 3.5 hours per week.
The mattress did come, but we aren't managing with it too well, I put the back up to sit him up a bit, he slides down and ends up in a crumpled heap at the bottom.
Not easy to get him back up.

This is the latest, I cant believe it, neither can the district nurse.
Dad doesn't meet the criteria for help.
He has to be in constant pain with cancer to qualify. I will never get anyone to sit with him or give me a break.
The nurse is going to come in on Thursday to help me wash him and change the bed.
District nurses shouldn't be doing that sort of work but they are just such nice people down here. She just wants to help me.

Can you have too many different plants?

My garden looks like an explosion in a paint factory, I don't care what clashes with what, I put shocking pinks with bright orange.
It does tend to be very soft, late spring and summer, pinks blues and lilacs, but late summer it's a riot of hot colours. I can't have too many plants, as long as you can put a group of one variety together, one plant on its own doesn't go so well, unless you have a tiny garden.

How Many Have You Got?

I have hundreds as well, and what do I do....make up hundreds of little ones with the Potter, for pricking out seedlings!
That way I can use all the junk mail left over after putting it on the compost heap.

You can prick out spindly seedlings, drop then in almost up the seed leaves, especially cosmos and tomatoes, as the will grow roots up the stem, making a sturdier plant.
Curl them round in the pot if need be, it won't hurt them.

Mini plug plants

Pot on gradually, when they are big enough to fill 5/6" pots, so a nice decent size, they can go out, probably late summer if they are tiny plugs now. They need a lot of care in the early months.
If you put them out small, the slugs will have them, or the frosts that can be about through April and early May.
