Well, to be fair to the surgery, you can get to see someone and I have never been refused a home visit all through mums troubles and dads now, but you get a final year student, two weeks ago he prescribed something for dad that we though was going to kill him, we stopped the tablets as soon as we saw what was happening, and an internet friend of mine who is a retired nurse said he shouldn't have been given those with what he's already taking, so I don't want a student doctor, problem is, no one else does either it seems, and I really do feel so very sorry for the main doctor to be flat out with work like that.

(comes up for air).   

Lets hope you get sorted out soon Hosta, we have lots of places to go and gardens to see, you need to be walking fit by the summer.

This year I have Gardeners Delight, San Marzano, tiny Tim, Roma, (Courtesy of Hosta) and Marmande. I haven't bought any this year but will try some different ones next year.

sweet baby sounds nice, so need to choose a bigger one, all mine have to be grown inside.

Best and worst seed and potting compost

Verdun, what does that Wyvale compost smell like, I have tried others that plainly stink. Also, does it contain some peat? 

Too early to plant - NE Scotland?

Andy do you watch this programme, it's around your area. 

some good planting tips, but apart from that they now have their own weather station. If you look on the back of your seed packets it will tell you what temperatures are needed to germinate, can you provide those temperatures day and night? 

If so go ahead, I know I certainly couldn't and I live much further south in Devon.  You may be disappointed if you start now.

Then you phone on the day....engaged for an hour, then told all booked for today, 

Of course, you can speak to one who is about 14.. did that two weeks ago, tablets nearly killed him. so 8 days to get an appointment for a phone call to speak the real doctor, no answer to my letter so far.

Thank you everyone for your kind thoughts.x

If you go to a site they will only sell them at the time you can plant them, if you look in this site for instance you will see some available now some not.

The Advent competition is for Advent, like the calendar, the four weeks leading up to Christmas, they didn't do one last Christmas and I am not even sure about the one before.

Dove won an Alan Titchmarsh book once but that was on the daily Advent calendar competition. Few years ago now though.
