They last longer against the house because of the wall. They are lime loving plants and like to have some concrete or rubble in the soil. I have very acid soil and give them a watering can full of lime water. Just once a year on planting.

Thanks folks, dad always said that if she went first, he would be very soon after.

Liz and M, I dont think I will post on other sites, this thread is made for it. It does drag people down a bit, but if either of you want to pass message on, I dont mind. 

Well done with the smoking Lizzie, when I met my new OH and he asked me out, I told him right 

from the star

t that there are strict no smoking laws , he agree

Thanks Matty, smokers always justify their smoking by coming up with things like..grandad smoked till he was hundred and never had a days illness.

I am not prepared to take that risk, nor my children, although my DIL smokes, she has a heart complaint and now emphacema(spell).Son has very bad illness that affects his immune system, goes in every so often for intravenus steroids. He has stopped taking all his meds now.

Very bright and warm here, OH home because I cant manage dreaded hospital wheelchairs.

No gardening for him, he's going off to do a job in a local churchyard.

Not god news at all, too late to operate, doctor said smoking is the biggest cause, even though mum gave up at 40, which is 46 years ago, apparantly it still lingers in the bladder.

 They may offer radiotherapy if she wants it and the Macmillan nurses will call.

The teacher that set the question obviously doesnt know a lot or she wouldnt have chosen the begonia as the plant in question.

I love wallflowers, they are so easy to do from cuttings, next year you can take lots more and have plants forever,   After a couple of years they get leggy and woody so cuttings are the way to go. Fresh plants every year. I planted mine out yesterday, chopped the flowers off and the rain will bring them on. Roll on Spring.

Me too. Verdun, have you used the chopped off bits for cuttings, 3 in a pot even more room in the conservatory.


Arnt we lucky to have the space to be able to do this, I am so grateful to my parents for the oppertunity to live in this  beautiful bungalow and have free reign in the garden.
