Thanks all. Looks like a big no no then. I did think that the spikes were not long enough to do any good.

Thanks Dove, that was one of main concerns.

As some of you know, I have a problem with my back and I am always looking at ways of making gardening easier for me to manage.

One product I have seen in the garden centres are "areating shoes". You fasten these onto the bottom of your shoes, walk all over the lawn, and the spikes, supposedly,  aerate your lawn.

I keep looking at them and wondering if they really work, or are they just a gimmick. At  the moment my aerating is done with a fork.

Has anyone tried them or got any opinions of them.

I'm the same. Gabapentin and co-codamol,  just to get through the day. This weather is NOT good, roll on summer.

Hugs to Lyn.

Verdun.  Families can be strange people. Both my sisters and my brother hardly every saw my mother when she was alive. As the final days came , so did they. They went to the hospital, phoned all the time and played the part of loving children.

All until the will was read. I haven't heard from any of them since. That was in February 2010.


You know you are doing the best for your mother. Keep your chin up and give yourself a pat on the back. 

I know what you're going through. Hugs on their way.
