I could round up a few hundred if anyone wants them, they obviously have migrated further south to Devon, the noise of them is deafening sometimes, I love them.

I dare say Monty can sit and relax and take it all in, he’s probably got a team of fit young men working for him, Me, I’ve just got one, and I’m not so sure he’s that fitπŸ˜€

I have practically give up on NHS and their doctors, if anything had been left to them, my son would be dead by now, it was only that I could afford private that’s he’s living now. They can only afford to give the cheapest drugs and that was useless to him. 

Talkng of eye conditions, I have Sjogrens, no tears or oil glands, the stuff the doctors supply on nhs is absolutely useless, I buy mine and sons drops and night gepls on the Internet.  No questions asked. 

I suppose because I now qualify for free prescriptions they only give you the cheap stuff.  

Cynic, like my dearest friend Hostafan, that’s my rant over.πŸ˜€

Best time to sow seeds is in Spring.

Fuchsias won’t come true from seeds, if you’ve saved your own, best dome from cuttings, early Spring or late summer is the best time.

You need to plant them deep as well, six inches.

If you want to grow anything at all, just look at its natural habitat, as Dove says.

Office windowsill isn’t exactly what they are used to.  Think about them in the wild and try to get as close to that as possible. 

You could try a Spider Plant for the office window sill or some cacti.

I think some ebay sellers are just rogues, I ordered something, didn’t arrive, they sent a replacement, did they heck as like! I opened a case, instant refund from eBay.

its all hassle, which I have never found on Amazon, I know people hate them, but they do get on with the job.

Hydrangea Recommendation

You can keep any down to 2 metres, just prune them every year, I have a long row of them. just ordinary, not  Paniculata, in complete shade, they love it, they stay damp there.
