This might be of interest to some of you http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2013/may/07/antibiotics-cure-back-pain-patients Won't cure every type of back pain but a worthwhile breakthrough nonetheless.
I remember the impact of the discovery of bacterial causes of stomach ulcers - years of misery ended with a course of antibiotics.
Lots here too (Surrey/Sussex border) which hopefully means that their prey species, bumble bees, are also in adundance. If bee flies are too successful then no bumble bees .
Unfortunately Spring is the wrong time of year to prune vines. They can bleed to death from sap loss when pruned at this time of year.
Rather than coffee grounds try spraying with coffee. Non-decaf though as it's the caffeine that kills them. Not an approved pesticide though so regard it as a foliar feed..
http://www.rhs.org.uk/Courses/Horticultural-training is good place to start. The RHS is focusing on horticulture as a profession this year. They are currently looking for 4 apprentices, two at Wisley and two at Hyde Hall. The advice to look for a local college is very sound. What region are you in?
Well they look rather dead. I don't think they needed Miraclegro at this stage. How much have you used on them?
Not many mushrooms around at this time of year. It might be Spring Field Cap - Agrocybe Praecox. Found on rotting woodchips. Not poisonous but bitter tasting apparently. Don't ever eat wild mushrooms unless they have been clearly identified by at least two experts. So no don't try to eat them.
