Edd, we are all unique.  We all believe nobody understands us.  

I have always dealt with situations with anger....but it's the easiest of emotions,thst serves no positive use..  I would attack all and sundry with no fear of punishment or consequence.  Push people away.  will go out of my way to be confrontational. But when it counts I can also deal with situations as I feel you can and will Edd

Well Perki.  You seem to have good ideas there.  You can swap perennials as you see how your border is progressing so plant as you intend to.  

Bulbs of course will add to the spring about some purple alliums.....purple Sensation......and a few lilies?  Regale will give you tall and scented white flowers in the interim before heleniums and the like

Being deciduous doesn't make your hedge useless LeifUK.  

I really do not think it is a lack of feed, etc.  

Come the spring your hedge will soon fill in again.  Just accept it as it is

Edd, an awful situation. 

two weeks before she sees a doc?  unless you can arrange an earlier one somehow you will need to be strong. But can you try to get it earlier?  

I went through a similar situation once and it is a roller coaster of emotions....hope and despair.....I know that. But you can't assume the worst ...and if your OH is in "denial" then that is helping her to cope for now.  You can't switch off the worry Edd but you still need to cope for now.  

When you have a diagnosis THEN you will focus on what to do.  For now Edd do something distracting and enjoyable as a family

words are never enough but it is far too early to fear the worst.
