My sympathy is with you fidget, that must be awful

The docs and hospital are very good down here, they just tell me anything I ask, and the docs actually ask for me on the phone. Maybe its because I am down as main carer. Maybe everything is more laid back down here. You stick to your grounds and do what you think is right.

Verdun, is your hospital Trellisk, my daughter had a bad time in there when she had her baby.

I find after they have produced so much fruit, the plant looks just about spent. So easy to grow from seed, I wouldnt use up the space.

That is a fantastic seed head, I hope you can get them going, do they need heat for a start?

Me too Charlie, I think that you would know well within a year whether your plants have died.

I only ever use Parkers, then only their sale stuff, my garden has some fantastic plants that all only cost 1.99, and bearing in mind I have only been doing this garden for 2 years, thats pretty good going.
