I think you if you contact Age Concern or Help The Aged they run some of these schemes

Are you considering volunteering?

A national treasure-like Stephen Fry-or Long John Silver treasure that should be buried on an island?

I have put the washing on-will take the hoover out for a spin in a moment-ironing is chillaxing-dinner is being prepared

It is 'ot-Archers on -nothing planned but laziness

Dan -the grass will still be there tomorrow-chillax

Chris -the Amsterdam trip-for new readers-is to scatter MIL's ashes that have been in the wardrobe for 3 years in a container hiding behind the white joggers and all my other fashion boo-boos-she was Dutch-we have been to an area near St Tropez for the past couple of years and have been to Canet before but this is the first time to this resort

Kate-a good and bad episode-I like revenge and people having to pay

Morning everyone else-hello HH from late last night and where is Becks?

Disease and composting

Don't know what the black spots are but the golden rule is never put diseased material in the home compost bin-burn it or domestic rubbish bin.

One more thing your leaf-mould-it would depend on what tree the leaves come from-in most cases it would just be neutral unless it was from say a pine but they might take a while to turn into leaf-mould.

Horse manure shouldn't make much difference to the ph in the soil-in fact because of the urine content it slightly acidic so that should help you

The worms will need something to feed on-I would invest in some well rotted horse manure add that to the soil- and work it in as best you can-the worms will move in and do the rest of the work for you

Then retest the soil at some point to see if you have still got the right balance

I get what you are trying to do now

It now makes sense and Christoper is right about the soil-I have never worried about what soil lillies have grown in by the way-they seem happy in anything.
