Wish list for seed and plant swap

Posted: 19/09/2014 at 11:52

I take it that the cactus seed is for something else, they wont live in the jat either.

Hot and dry for cactus as well as the sedums.

If you want anything, please let me know.

Thank you every one for your thoughts and care, its very difficult especially with this drinking lark, or when they tell you they are ok and they are not, she looked ok last week and as soon as I detected she was not good I called the doctor out.

You are all very kind and I really do take note of the comments even if I dont reply, thank you.

Slosh, cut the branch off as others have said, not a good idea to do a hard prune until Feb, just shorten the other stems in Autumn, when they are in the dormant season to stop wind rock, then a good prune in Feb or in cold areas in March.

If you hard prune now they will grow new shoots which will not be stong enough to withstand cold winters.

A very dear friend of ours died on Sunday, funeral next week, his son has dug the grave and wants my OH to help him fill in.

 I dont really blame myself as such, but I am so annoyed with the whole situation as if she had told me none of this would have happened.

I dont thing it was the paramedics job to have a go at me, his job is with the patient, if and only if, he suspected any fowl play, then he should have phoned social services, not take it upon himself to judge me. I was upset enough, as was said before dehydration causes all sorts of problems, she was shaking and. Jittering couldnt keep still. 

He made her get out of bed on her own, she nearly fell and I had to hold her,  my daughter said,,,I hope you got his name mum!

Turf or seeding

Well done for getting the seeds sown and for watering well, we should get some rain soon that will do it good. It wont grow much this year but in the S

pring will shoot away.


Nothing wrong with being a cheapskate, Toots, more money to buy plants with now.

Sweetpea, did you say once before that you had yellow sweet peas.

I have 2 different kinds of ground hugging sedums, one yellow one pink

I dont think sedums are suitable for terrariums they like dry soil, in a case they will be permanently damp. My ex and I used to make those, big elaborate things like the Victorians had, we put ferns and mosses in them.

My mum is back in hospital, had doc in and he called paramedics, one of them said she was terribly dehydrated, which of course I knew, then he said it was down to me, I just blew, we had such a row, then he was not very kind to her getting her in the ambulance and she was scared, so I warned him that if he upset her there would be trouble.

The other one tried to over compensate by being extra nice and said it wasnt my fault, and he understood what old people are like.

If she doesnt tell me anything, how can I do anything for her.

She told the paras she hadnt had a wee since Monday and had not passed anything through the Stoma for a week, she told me everything was working fin

e, I ask her every morning. She just wont drink, which is essencial for the Stoma, now she will have drip fluids, catheter and flush out.They said this would take two days, poor old dad is worried sick, bless him.
