I have just started on my Wyvale compost, looks nice, smells nice, my tomato plants are dying. Never had any problems before, pricked out seeds don't seem to be coming on as well as usual. Time will tell, but I think I will go back to my Erin Malloy.

I don't think that's any good at all and agree with Dove. 

For 20quid you could dig, or get someone to dig a little hole and lay a liner, lifetime guarantee and you can make a beach end and put grasses up to the edge with some big flat stones.

Hopes raised...

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends - part 2

It helps a lot Verdun, it really does, thanks you everyone.

No chance of that Hosta, I can hardly move him, and I certainly would want him to go to hospital, you have no idea what he's like.

I did get some sleep last night, as he has become incontinent, just to weak to get out and use the commode now, so he slept better knowing everything was all contained.
What a performance getting pads and pants on him though, by myself,,
A district nurse popped in to see how things were and helped with a bed wash. She's not supposed too.
Anyway, I have now tracked down a mobile shop who sells big nappies, so I can just wrap them around, hopefully will be easier.
The chappie from the Peninsula Care came to access this morning and said he would pick them up and pay for them and drop them in later, as I can't go out and leave him.
Their care wil start tomorrow but only half an hour a day, for a start, it's a small private company with only five workers in our area.
As I will be paying privately, I may be able to call on them at other times when things get worse. They won't get worse, we have reached that point today. So things will stay the same for a little while.
Thank you all.

Ours is like dry white straw! Not to worry, it'll be lovely in the summer.

No probs, it works very well, mine are all well away now.
I did try taking cuttings, as you do with dahlias, it didn't work for me, so I will stick to chopping the tubers.

Thank you Fishy, we do have that special friendship and it goes a long way.
It does work both ways though doesn't it.
Love to Mrs F and Happy Birthday to Beth on Saturday.
I will be fine, I just let of steam every so often, as you know by now

Thank you everyone, who have listened to my rants this week.

Pressure Treated Fencing Green Tinge

Wood used to have that green tinge because it had been treated with arsenic for a preserver, don't know what they use now but it does go completely away.

I don't know about painting it, I always like to leave wood, wood colour.
