Get in the Garden!

by Sharon Longshaw

April is a busy time in the garden many shrubs will benefit from a trim this month to keep them tidy and encourage new growth. Shorten the shoots of cape fuchsia, cutting back to strong sideshoots, shaping the plant and cutting out the dead wood. Hard prune, tall old stems on Buddleja and other fast-growing shrubs that flower on new wood. Many dogwoods and willows, grown as clumps and valued for their colourful winter stems, should also be cut back hard now, right down to a stubby base, about 30cm (12in) from the ground to ensure lots of new growth. Complete rose pruning in March before they start into strong growth. Shorten all shoots, cutting back to an outward-facing bud, Clip old flowers off winterflowering heathers, take care not to trim back into old wood. Mark any congested clumps of Spring bulbs that have flowered poorly with a label to remind you to lift and divide them later in the year. A little attention to spring-flowering pots will ensure they look their best right through until May. Pick off dead flowerheads from primulas and winter-flowering pansies to encourage plants to develop further flowers. Also

pick off the faded heads from spring bulbs, such as daffodils, but leave their foliage intact. Compost in pots can also dry out, so check with a finger to see how moist it is, and water well if it has dried out. Many summer-flowering bulbs can be planted in March and April. In mild areas, dahlia tubers can be planted outside, covered with about 10cm (4in) of soil. In cold regions, delay planting until later in April. In the coming months, plant groups of gladioli at intervals to extend their flowering season. Grow lilies in pots so that they can be moved into the garden to fill any gaps. If you have any gaps in borders you can sow quickgrowing hardy annuals directly into the soil during April not forgetting to Sow sweet peas outside where you want them to flower. Lastly sit back with a nice cuppa and enjoy looking over all your hard work! Provided by Flower Power Garden Services www.southendgardener.co.uk 01702 305554

HELP ME FIGHT CANCER Appeal for Chiane

An update on Chiane. We are back at Great Ormond Street and Chiane is an inpatient for a few days while tests are being carried out to establish how her body is recovering after the last high dose Thiotepa.

next month we will know more once all tests are completed and we will have a better picture as to how Chiane is doing to make the necessary decisions regarding any future treatments.

The good news is that we continued with HLA match platelet transfusion from 1 donor, (despite being told that Chiane won’t benefit from it) luckily she did, and her platelet levels today went up from 5 to 75, which is an increase of 1200% benefit compared to normal platelet transfusion. She has responded well and her platelets incremented which is all very positive and good news! Hopefully Chiane’s body will be strong enough for her second course of Thiotepa.

Thank you for your continued Fund Raising and Support, we truly appreciate it!

We will keep you updated every month on Chiane’s progress and

Are you a little unsteady on your feet? As we age, our co-ordination and balance may decrease and we become more likely to trip and fall. This can lead to pain, decreased mobility and, in the worst case, fractured bones. There is however, no need to let fear of a fall restrict mobility around the house. I’ve collated some advice to help improve safety features within the home and I have also noted down some basic health advice to keep people active and mobile in the safest possible way.

Avoid a Fall - Home safety check Easy access. Arrange furniture so that you can move around the house easily. Watch your feet. Hard floors should be non-slip and ensure that floor coverings, rugs and mats are in good repair and firmly secured. Tidy away trailing electrical cords and ensure that sttairs are well lit. De-clutter! Don’t leave objects posing trip hazards on the floor. Hold onto something. Install grab-handles, banisters and handrails where necessary. Eye test. Have your eyes checked regularly and keep your specs clean.

Improve your balance. Build a sensible exercise routine into your week. Check your medication. Ask your GP or chemist to review your medication’s effect on your balance.

Fracture risks The chance of fractured bones after a fall is significantly greater if the person is suffering from osteoporosis, which decreases the strength of your bones. To reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis, ensure that you have enough calcium in your diet. A daily brisk walk or even lifting small weights such as tins of food, can make a significant difference. Remember that prevention is better than cure! Making a few changes in your home, your diet and exercising regularly should keep you firmly on your feet.

Simple Steps to Keep the Burglar at Bay Police have called on residents to help keep down crime by taking a few preventative steps to protect their home and prized possessions from burglars. While the borough remains among the safest parts of the county, in line with the trend right across Essex, Castle Point has seen a recent rise in burglaries. The police are actively patrolling hot-spot areas and conducting covert operations to disrupt those suspected of committing burglary and to bring them to justice. Most burglaries are preventable; burglars are opportunists and seek out the most vulnerable properties. You can reduce the chances of your home being targeted by taking a few straightforward precautions:

• Have front and back doors fitted with good quality locks • Keep front and rear doors locked even when you are at home • Remember to lock external doors and windows when you go out, and use timers for lights and radios when it gets dark or you are away • Lock all UPVc doors correctly by lifting the handle AND using the key • Fit an alarm • Have well positioned motion sensitive security lighting • Keep all keys, especially car keys, out of sight in the house and well away from doors and windows • Use a letter box restrictor to prevent burglars from reaching inside to take keys or to open the door • Keep jewellery out of sight, ideally in a safe, not in a jewellery box in the bedroom – it’s the first place a burglar will look. • Keep all ladders and gardening tools locked away in a secure shed; leave them insecure in the garden and you make it easier for the burglar to attack your home.

If you have any information about burglaries in Castle Point, call police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Regency Spice
