It is surprising how adaptable plants are or can be Lou.  apart from fundamental factors like acidity I find I can experiment with an element of logic.  Many plants, for example, require shade to grow well but often a good moisture retentive soil will enable them to grow in partial or even full sun.  I often break the rules now and they do well.

We forget that presenters are ordinary folk with the same insecurities, problems and health worries we all do.

we have a right to our favourites though.  Charlie Dimmock was always a must watch but on a recently shown tv series she was excellent. 

A West Indian, I think, ...forget his name and name of programme....was presenter of  a make over show last summer.  He was excellent too.  Got his hands dirty and knew his stuff.

Mind you I do argue a bit.  Like things done my way.  Still think it would work though.

Freakishly wet period Dave.  Not warm enough to dry out.  

My sense is reseeding and feeding is enough.

let us know how you get on John.  Feedback, that is sometimes lacking here, is helpful
