    Kids and FiLs. I left mine in charge last year when we went to Singapore for a month.

    Rather than water little and often, he decided to do it all on the one day, and left everything standing in water. 80% of my plants drowned.

    I had a wonderful time, thanks. Went down to Stratford-upon-Avon and indulged in all the RSC plays and (too!) many cream teas


    Thanks for the offer - I've PM'd you. I'm just down the road from you in Garthdee and used to have friends in Auchenblae but they've moved.

    2sheds, that's terrible! At least quite a lot of the ones that weren't already dead recovered once they'd had a drink - though I think 3 of my 8 bean plants are struggling.
