Some people soak them in a bucket of water first, I don't, most of them I leave in the garden, here's hoping. Have a bit more patience , see how they go.

The nights are the worst Lily, he's restless, agitated, half dreams of the most silly things, I have just changed him, pulled him back up the top of the bed and hopefully that's tired him out for a couple of hours, it certainly does me

That's the worse thing Steve, my friend lost her son in car accident, she will never get over it, but with us here, I am so pleased I can look after my dad, he's completely dependant on me now, as he's too weak to even move, but when he goes, it won't be a shock, and I will give thanks for him, I won't think about missing him because I know this will be what he wants.

It must be worse when you suddenly hear your loved one has gone.
My heart goes out to everyone on this thread, as Verdun says, very important.

I must give a big thank you to Verdun, he has supported me this year and last when I was in the same position with mum, even though his own mum was very ill, so thank you mate, means a lot to have you for a friend.

Thank you to everyone who has PM'd me and emailed, I will answer you all when I can.
Overwhelmed with the kindness.

Have you got yours yet?

Verdun, I could do with you here fighting my corner.
I called the doctor in today, got a new one, ( wow, if I was only a few years younger, or 50!) anyway, he prescribed something strong, I had to wait for OH to get home before I could go down there to get it, goes into the private room to talk about it, oh dear he says, the date run out ages ago, can you pop in tomorrow. No I said, ok he said, I'll have it brought out to you. Result!
So there's another night of stress and agitation all round.

Who said she wanted to move down here, all very pretty, just wait till you need some help, the Marie Curie nurse who's from Oxford, says she's never seen such laid back people! They all 'do it dreckly' down here, and no one really knows how long that can be

Watered or not, they seem to come up in their own time. Mine in unheated greenhouse, although I did start them off I the conservatory.

Obi, do you buy that in a coil or by the metre or what.
I suppose it's cheaper than the Harrods ready mades, I could really do with some, I didn't see Monty make them. I expect I could find a you tube link.

My daughter uses a wool type mixture, just spread around the plants, she says it works. She gets it in Wyvale.
