Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Posted: 14/10/2014 at 20:57

Had a meeting about my mum.  Dont know what to do exactly.  She seems content but has deteriorated with memory and speech issues.  The residential.home will decide but I may still decide  against moving her.

I felt sorry for Botham.  I don't really know what I would do if my mum didn't know me but I couldn't just forget her and leave her simply because she didn't know me. We are all different though ....it's difficult to judge others 

Hey folks.......reading all these posts and hope all of you suffering get good news or strength to cope

HELLO FORKERS!

Sad Christmas Roses

Posted: 14/10/2014 at 18:56

Cannot keep my Christmas roses for more than 2 years

However, if I grew them again I would do so in pots.  John innes and mushroom compost topped with grit.  Partial shade too

Dwarf Dahlias

Yes I have grown it.  Didn't like it at all.  A bonsaid dahlia,,for me, looks odd even freakish.  

However, they should not get attacked more by slugs, snails or caterpillars.  If your plant was a bit below par pests will be drawn to it and not because it is a dwarfed variety. 

is it too late to overseed my lawn?

Yes sow now.  Cover lightly. It will germinate quickly right now

ba nanna cake? 

Been a fantastic day...very warm, even hot at times, dry and no wind.  

Had a meeting to discuss my mums care home situation.  A lovely residential home is now a possibility but my mum seems to change day by day. Currently she forgets so much, can't put too many words together but seems content.  A difficult decision to make 

Matty, heleniums are fast becoming a favourite of mine.  Don't know Sunset but given some moisture in summer they are all fantastic.

 

Vandalism!

BOATER, that's unacceptable.  Can  you have a word with any of the parents ?

Talk to police ...they will prob have a word with the suspected vandals . Spread the word to your neighbours 

Would you like to have a dog?  

Prickly bushes like Berberis  Darwinii in the long run

A catapult would be my chosen solution but prob not the way.
