How many begonias can I grow in a 9inch  half moon shaped wall pot   In previous years I've grown a mixture of geraniums and petunias but this year i fancy a change  as there`s also an offer on them  in one of the gardening mags

A load of chat today at the afternoon, the sun was shining.  A little bit of weeding but probably a lot more chat, but very enjoyable time.  Things are starting to grow, better sort out the seed box.

Took Dulce to the vet yesterday as his claws are too sharp and keeps catching in my jumper or my veins on my hand.  Just for a check up. He has never been to the vet before or in the car. He was very, very scared in the car in the cat carrier and meowed all the way to the vet, and was panting badly.  Anyway, we saw the vet after a little wait, and thought he had wet himself.  When we got out he had a runny poo, all over him.  The vet said next time, you bring him just tell someone as not fair to leave him like that and they will clean him up whilst waiting for the vet.  They had two separate areas for dogs and cats, to stop the cats getting so nervous. Luckily the vet was great and washed him down, and got the carrier washed out whilst I explained that he was very nervous.  He had his claws clipped, and was checked for a microchip in case he was stolen.  He also had a worm treatment, an injection against cat flu, and his teeth looked at.  He is slightly overweight, but the vet was brilliant, did suggest some dry food for his teeth, but he got the all clear. Have to take him back in 3 weeks for the second injection which is covered in the cost.  It only cost me just over 50. which I think is brilliant for the treatment he got. Anyway thanks to a wonderful local vet, who did not try to persuade me to do anything I was not comfortable with.  Dulce is happy now back on his lovely settee with OH.

I've just ordered a polytunnel for our new fruit and veg plot.  It's quite big - 4m wide  x 8m long.   There is also a shade net including for high summer.

I'm planning to erect it facing east with the long sides facing north and south to allow for sun worshippers as wella s plants which need less and there will be a door at either end for ventilation.

It will be used for starting off crops early and ornamentals too and then producing salads and some veggies in the lean months and sheltering tender stuff like dahlias and cannas over winter.

Any tips on making the support poles secure, tying it down, general care and maintenance?   I've only ever had a teeny glasshouse and that in much colder climes.
