How about a work party then folks, free holiday on Darmoor, you'l love it 

I did get a district nurse this morning, no care in place I really dont think its the job of a fully trained nurse to wash and change bedding.

It would cost them far more to keep her in a care home. They are just not available, I offered to pay but thats not the answEr.

Seriously though, thank you all for your good wishes kind thought and so on, really appreciated.

Talkback: Choosing nutrients for your plants

They will grow when the growing season starts, thats when it warms up a bit, planted these about 3 years ago, poor ground just a bit of compost in the bottom, keep the tops pinched out of all shoots, they will soon romp away.

Dont know how big you wanted it, but have you looked at ready made. We have made things before, the last being a wooden rose arch, then looking in the garden centre we could have bought a better one cheaper than the cost of the bits.

There are cheaper places to buy on the net.

Ebay or Amazon, Here is one on ebay and it would probably cost you that to buy the stuff plus the agro to build.

Thank you, Lunaria.

The trouble is that the hospice team can only help for 72 hours, they came last Sunday for the first time, should have only been until Tuesday morning, they still kept coming until yesterday morning when they said they couldnt come anymore and the care package should be in place. She said that all the time they come, NHS. Wont bother!

I have heard nothing.

I phoned the hospice this morning and was told they could not come out anymore and to ring the NHS emergency doctors/nurses.

And.. would you believe, they know nothing! She is looking into it and someone will phone me later.

I didnt ask for help, even though several people on here said I should, when I was at the end of my tether, I did ask, that was almost 3 weeks ago now.

The NHS is a good service, when you can get some help they are very good, its just getting them. OH said if it was privatized they would all pull their socks up!

It must be good, everyone wants to come here and use it, we are the only country with it. It seems such a shame that my mum has got to 87 and no one wants to help us .

Watching seedlings grow

Gemma , next time they will probably go into 4 inch flower pots, they will be deep enough. Wait until they are well rooted in those pots first.

Lovely room DD, thats what living rooms are for, all things living!


Supprot for Solanum glasnevin?

They need a strong trellis or support, this one has been in for 4 years this year, its cut back every Spring

No, dont cut the leaves off Marc, just pot on and wait a bit to plant out, they sound lovely plants and will flower this year. If its a perennial Lobelia, it won't be frost hardy for a long while, you may lose them in the winter, I dug mine up and brought them in. 

Beware of slugs, they love all those plants you have mentioned, if you can get them a good size before they go out they will stand a better chance, although the Lobelia will always get chewed however big it gets.
