Did the thrift ever come to anything-I forget- but I forget soooo much

For what it is worth if something is sending out non-flowering shoots then that is a good time to borrow some material.

Listening to radio now.

Is this the thrift house?

Have just been outside and it is freezing out there- around 10C.

Don't keep adding feed-turn it out and check for vine weevil grubs that may have been at the roots,it could be waterlogged,the roots could have got frozen in the winter-really if the top isn't growing- check the bottom

Just being realistic- I did say you wouldn't want to hear it-or instead I could have said there are plenty of jobs for you- but there aren't.

I am with Calendula on this one-has anyone tried to lift a fully glazed greenhouse-it is going nowhere.

I hate to shatter allusions but am puzzled as to why you want to enter a notoriously low paid profession if you have over overheads that wont be met-as to a PA to a garden designer such jobs are few and far between and probably only the really top people need a PA

To me you have two choices stick with what you are doing now or bite the bullet and go down the horticultural role-talk to the rhs about career advice

Sorry if all this sounds brutal and is not what you wanted to hear but at the present moment in the uk recession, job shortage situation, it is going to be a struggle.

Yay-our car is due for a service and MOT by the end of the month-I have read that for an MOT council run sites are more likely to pass the car as they don't do repairs so have no hidden incentive.

Would that be pasty kensit or pasty cline?

They are only poisonous if you eat them-  they will not contaminate your compost- as for whether the seeds survive depends on how hot the heap gets-if you have any doubts why not put in the council green waste bin?- their composting system generates much more heat than in a garden environment.
