    John, you know very well that there is a patient only parking area,. It was always packed and I would suggest it will continue to be so. I have made my point, I am not trying to convince you or anyone else that I am correct so stop trying to pick a fight 'cos I'm not playing.

Roxanne, I'm with you on the pleasure of growing your own plants. I never cease to be amazed at the way a mighty plant emerges from a little teeny seed. By the way I'm not a gardening nerd I just enjoy.
  9. Any potatoes that have chitted, (posh for started shooting). Or you can buy seed potatoes from Feltons, Farmer's combine or BQ or most garden centres. Any bucket sized containers or boxes with a few drain holes prodded in them. Handful of soil or compost in bottom, spud on top, just cover spud with soil or compost. As leaves grow keep nearly covering them until eventually the container is full. Wait, with great patience. Must keep watered, don't allow to dry out but don't overwater. Wait until leaves wilt, tip container upside down, stand back in amazement at the
  10. Planted the strawberries out today. Onion sets next along with some onion seeds I saved from last year. I haven't properly tried onion seeds before so should be interesting. Spuds in buckets and beetroot next.......I love it when gardening time comes round.
  11. Maintain, enhance and cherish what we've got as my contribution. If what we've got worked properly would be most satisfactory.
  12. The 70s are NOT jabbed. That tranch has only just started.
