Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Feel so much for you fidget.  Terrible situation.  

expected to see my mum near to death's door today But she was much better.  Earlier doc rang to say last weeks x ray showed pneumonia and he says there's a possibility of lung cancer.  We discussed care to deal with pain but no further "investigations" etc

its a day by day scenario which is so unsettling

No Lyn I use as is.  The salt content seems not to have any detrimental affect - soon washed out anyway.  If I remember correctly seaweed contains alginic acid that helps bind sandy soils plus iodine and other trace elements that provide a tonic both to soil and plant.  Ok, a slight smell for few days but it's a sea smell in keeping with Cornwall coast.

Bit lazy these days.  I have a couple of heaps but rarely turn them.  Must get into that routine again.  Inspired by the pictures of steaming heap topped with leaves.....can't remember right now who it was but much respect to him

Cornwall Dove!  You lucky thing.  They all go around with straw in their mouths and hope to have electricity soon 

Overwintering pelargoniums-how often to water?

Posted: 08/12/2014 at 13:01

Last winter was exceptionally mild though Topbird.  Chances are it will be colder this time.   I think you are right to keep them as you do.  Pelargoniums are tougher than many people think anyway.
