Move it now?

I love that..swoon like a Victorian miss!
I have lots in the garden here, mostly grown from seed, never seen one self seed, nothing self seeds here, don't know why, marigold sometimes do, and lots of little foxgloves, but not much else.
I had some aquilegia chewed by vine weevil last year, and my daughters were completely eaten by tiny green caterpillars.

I am wide awake Pat.
Are you going into autumn, seems no time at all when. You were saying how hot and dry it was.
Dad is talking about everything, there's nothing wrong with his mind, I showed him the hi lights of the Eubank Jr. Fight today, that's when he said he was glad he stopped when he did, I must tell him about the new champion. He said the ref was well wrong to let it go on that long.
He's not sleeping too well at nights, but we disgusted something to help him, then we changed our minds as we wouldn't be able to have our night time chats if he was zombied.

My dad was a boxer, he'd also done the fairgrounds.
they renamed him Nigger as a nick name because he was very dark skinned and black hair, wouldn't be allowed now. Well, you couldn't have a boxer called Herbert

Debatable gardening in witches land

Never give up hope with your garden, there's always something that will grow well, look at what pops up in the Himalayas,
My daffs are just coming out as well, and a few primroses, you would think living in Devon everything would be ahead, but I am also high up 960' and windy on the west side of Dartmoor, so I suppose that keeps it cooler. And the plants later.
You'll get there, mine here was covered in brambles and ground elder only four years ago, now I it's lovely, always need more beds though
Oh yes! And a 100' conifer border hedge that's now a long border.

Lovely Jacqueline, good to see that you have chosen little pots to sow in, you can get lots of different plants that way, far better than sowing a seed tray full of one variety.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends - part 2

Thank you, you are all such wonderful people, I am overwhelmed with all your lovely comments.
Tonight dad had a bad turn, I called the duty doctor who was here in 15 mins.
She suspected a mild heart attack but he didn't want to go to hospital for the tests.
She gave him a large soluble aspirin and left an under tongue spray.
I think it was a bit of a panic attack as well as I had left him while we had our dinner and he woke up alone.
He had heard me say I was going to the supermarket Saturday morning and was scared he would die while I was out.
I do feel so sorry for him, he's so easy and good to look after.
I am now on a little foam mattress on the floor right next to his bed, and am not going to leave him.

Greenhouse advice

I wouldn't sit it straight on that frame into the soil. Mine would be long gone.

I have two that are sitting on concrete  blocks, one has slabs inside, one has raised beds for tomatoes. The other one is just bolted onto the galvanised frame then into patio slabs, it's stayed there for five years so far. 

absolutely no need to dig down like that for footings, if you feel you want to, then dig down and sink a line of concrete blocks in, then anchor with your frame. My dad only raised his first two on the blocks because he was tall and it gave him more head room. They have stood there like that for 30 years, and will continue to do so.

Just had to ring and cancel the paid care, he wasn't best pleased!  I just said send the bill for what you've done so far.

Ryan, I have one sounds similar to yours, but no flowers yet.

There did used to be an expert on here, hope he still pops in, mine has not grown in height but it's wider and puts on new growth every year, no flowers.
