Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

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 .

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.

Early summer

Haven't seen any bees. Last night was 2c and today was even colder, forecast said feels like - 2c.

Definitely not early summer here, still in mid winter.

My OH says that the NHS has had it!

He reckons it should be privatized, not being politically minded so I don't know, but I do know that I had to ask for help two and a half weeks ago, they still haven't put a care package, as they call it, in place.

Thank goodness for the Hospice crisis team, they have come in to help for 5 days, but cannot do it any more as I am really only entitled to 72 hours.

Never had white fly in there, do get a few green fly, but being vigilant, I squash them as soon as I see them.
