I just use the envelopes that come with junk mail.

When I post seeds out to anyone, on the seed swap thread, I make up tiny envelopes from junk mail, turning the writing bit inside out, being a tight a**se I dont use new ones.

I think Lilac and Prunus are fairly slow growing, go on and plant any perennials you like under them, Some are only at their best for about 3 years anyway, and you can always dig them up and put them somewhere else when the trees fill out.

sow some annual seeds in March/April to fill in any gaps, it doesnt matter how close, they only live one season anyway.

You did right in getting dad in hospital, the scan will show whats what, maybe a long job, mum is having another scan tomorrow, they are in the best place.

Are you close to the hospital, ours is a nightmare, well the car park is, then finding your way round the hugest building.

Not enough, its been a very dry hot summer, I have plants and trees like but I dont take any notice, I grow loads of plants, if one or two sucumbe, so be it, nothing is perfect in this world. You could cut it down to the ground or just leave it. It will be gone soon anyway. Next year it will come up ok.
