Alternatives to Log Roll?

I can vouch for the strength of the plastic ones. When I was doing our garden when we moved in, I found a lot of these buried, completely under the ground.No idea how long they had been there.  After a good wash we gave them to a single mum down the road for her garden as she couldn't afford to buy any.

I have glaucoma and have to go to the hospital every 6 months to see the specialist. I have drops in both eyes every morning, I get a slight stinging when I put them in, but apart from that I get no pain. 

If you are getting pain in your eyes please go back to your GP or optician and have them looked at. My brother lost his sight because he ignored it.

As you have glaucoma you should be having a check up at the hospital at least once a year. If you are not, again I would advise you to go to your GP, it is so easy to fall through the net. I did.

starting from scratch!

I can't offer much advice except to say don't expect it to happen overnight. And if you can post some pics, then people, who have more knowledge than me, can see what you have got and will know what advice to give.

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

I managed a bit of weeding this morning and were surprised to see all my daffodils shooting up. I thought they were early last year !!!!

When mum was in hospital before she passed away, she had lost the ability to swallow and the ward sister told us that they were not allowed to put "nill by mouth" up any more. Didn't think to ask why.

Black Friday bargains

..slightly off topic but I'm becoming quite impressed with a store called 'Range'... the nearest to me is at King's Lynn in Norfolk....can't say I'd ever taken much notice of it before..I think it's some kind of discounter maybe..but they have a huge range of home, kitchen and garden products and their small garden centre out the back is actually quite impressive.... the plants are all named varieties.... not simply Azalea - Red...   and a surprisingly large choice...things like Acer's, Buddleia's,.. some perennials and various shrubs and climbers...  smallish plants to grow on...

...if there is one anywhere in your vicinity, I do recommend giving it a try if you haven't already done so.... it's new to me...

We have a 'Range' not for from us and I love going in, they sell just about everything !!  I watched a program on the TV a while back about it and the owner locked just like Dell Boy out of Only Fool and Horses.
