HELLO FORKERS April 2016 Edition

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.

Thank for your kinds thoughts everyone, we are still hanging in there.i asked the doctor for some sleeping pills as he gets agitated through the night, nothing forth coming, even the Marie Curie nurse told the receptionist it was urgent. Can't be bothered to fight anymore, ( me, not him ) I gave him a Nightol, hasn't worked yet.

Mike, are you telling the OP to wait about five days before planting up?
I don't think that's such a good idea.
