Oh no KEF, he wants to do so much, he's completely with it, no problems there, just completely washes out and drained. He wants to do things, he does try to have a walk around, and has started using a walking stick.  He's asking me what seeds I have to plant and what to do with the soil. 

How marvelous of you to remember about mums birthday, she would have been 88 but she had a good life, very busy housewife in the olden days,  so she deserves a good rest now.

I have bought the seeds bu haven't sown yet. I don't think they are a bother at all, I remember them when I was a child, they are only annuals.

Dangerous slippy path when wet

Are the slabs set level or on the slope, maybe you can level them? I have the same problem in my garden, but the slabs are laid level like a set of stairs.

Lovely sun here as well, I had to remove seed trays from window sill.

i don't think dad has the energy to get outside, which annoys him because he's always been an outdoors person, was as miserable as sin through the winter.

he had to lay back on the bed half way through dressing this morning. It's such a shame because he's so bright, in no way has his mind gone, I need to grab all gardening knowledge and make a note. 

As well as an m on the iPad, I can't change my avatar, on laptop that is.

Best and worst seed and potting compost

Could be worth a try that Jeff. You can always mix a little bone meal in, not for seeds or first potting up though.

I keep old compost, some goes on the compost heap, the stuff with roots, but the rest is bagged up and is now used to start off begonia corms and dahlias.

mixed with a bit of perlite is now being used for my seed germination.
