Looking forward to a blooming Summer by Sharon Longshaw Beware of late frosts and keep vulnerable plants and new shoots protected at night if frost is forecast. Don’t be tempted to put out tender bedding until the middle of the month and even then be prepared to cover it if necessary. Continue with the spring cleaning, continue to dead head spring bulbs. Hoe your borders to get rid of weeds before they take hold, annual weeds such as bitter cress and groundsel are enough of a nightmare without allowing them to go forth and multiply by seeding. If it’s dry, attack ground elder and the like with systemic weed killer painted onto the leaves. Remember these systemic weed killers are indiscriminate and will kill anything they contact. Dandelions are a huge nuisance at this time of year - if you don’t have time to deal with them terminally, at least chop their heads off before they set seed. Water is a precious commodity this year - start good practices such as using kitchen and bath water (as long as it is neither too dirty, greasy nor full of detergent) for watering, collect rainwater and look in to ways to recycle water for garden use. The trick with watering is to water thoroughly once or twice a week rather than little and often (containers etc do need watering every day). With a large shrub or tree, leave a hose trickling around it for

an hour whilst hedges are best watered with a trickle hose (a length of old hose punctured with little holes) left running for an hour or so. Mulch away while you can still see what you are doing and before the herbaceous growth really takes off. Use your own garden compost or leaf mould, well rotted manure, the contents of out-of-date grow bags or readymade soil conditioner. Now the soil is warming up and things are starting to grow, add general purpose fertiliser before covering with mulch especially in borders, the fruit and vegetable patch and containers. If you have already mulched, draw it back, tease the soil a little, add fertiliser and replace the mulch. Carry on removing moss and weeds from paths, terraces and drives and keep an eye out for pests around the garden. Try to keep the use of chemical controls to a minimum - they may kill off pests, but they also kill off the beneficial insects that prey on them such as ladybirds and hoverfly larvae.

Lets look forward to a blooming summer! 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 making good progress. Chiane is off the morphine and although still in pain, we manage the pain with normal Paracetamol and oralmorph which we use at home. We are slowly increasing the feeding to her gut each day and taking Chiane off the TPN slowly. Once Chiane is off TPN and only feeding to her gut, we will be going home. We can then continue her care at home. When we went the park, I had flash backs of our very first visit to this park. We had a nice long chat and we sat on the same garden bench as we did last year end of June when she first started treatment and us breaking the news to her that she has cancer. I asked her how she felt now that we came to the end of this phase of her fight against cancer and she said: “it was like you said daddy, like tennis, we only focused on 1 ball at a time and we dealt with each ball as it was thrown at us. 9 months ago you told me we will take one day at a time and 9 months felt like a life time…. now

it’s over and it flew by so quickly”. She is very proud with herself and what she did, the fears she overcome to do radiotherapy without Anaesthetics, drinking lots and lots of homeopath medicines, changing her eating habits. The list was endless and we both just sat there and I could see her mind was running back to our first day here. She had a big smile on her face and said: “I’ve grown up haven’t I?” I just laughed and said to her she has no idea just how much she has grown and I added… Boyfriends are still off the list in my eyes! She just laughed! On our way back Chiane asked me what comes next. I said to her we will go home, rest, get her body back on track and get her strong enough to fly. Then we will discuss the next step as we have 3 countries to visit, USA, Germany and the Philippines. She just said she is ready for whatever Follow me on comes next.

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

Registered Nurse, Reflexology, Bowen Technique, Aromatherapy

01702 558623

www.rosemarycunningham.co.uk

Children with Asthma If you have a child with asthma in your family, you’re probably all awake at night! In my 25 years in healthcare, my biggest satisfaction is when I treat a child as with Bowen technique, the family will usually see a big change in just a couple of weeks or in some cases, days. Parents often comment “he’s a different child” as the Bowen moves gently relax tight muscles (yes, even tiny babies can have tense muscles) and your child is more relaxed and sleeps and eats better. I often see babies with bronchiolitis who have been in hospital and have ongoing coughs, wheezing and continual coughs and colds. WIth Bowen , treatment is a sequence of gentle rolling moves over muscles and soft tissue, to persuade the body to start its own healing process, adjust and rebalance. When I treat a child, we read a book or play at the same time and treatment takes just a few minutes. How does Bowen work with asthma? The diaphragm normally contracts when breathing in and then relaxes to allow us to breathe out. With an asthmalike condition, the diaphragm may be constantly partly in contraction. If a trigger, such as a cold or illness, or an allergy is detected, the diaphragm seems to contract more and more, This typically brings about a reduction in

asthma attacks and their severity, especially amongst young children. What about medication? Asthma treatment is usually inhalers, sometimes courses of oral steriods and antibiotics for chest infections. As a parent you are probably always eager to get your child off steroids as soon as possible. Most children who have Bowen treatment respond very quickly so, sometimes medicines have been reduced quite soon after treatment has started. It is very important to realise that medication has been prescribed to protect your child from the danger of a major attack and I therefore always recommend that reducing medicines is always done under the guidance of your doctor and asthma nurse.You may well be able to reduce medicines quite soon after Bowen treatment. Diane, mother of James commented “Right from the first treatment there were vast improvements in James’ health. The cough practically disappeared overnight. Everyone I met noticed and commented on James lack of cough and increase in energy”. Do have a look on my website for more information and success stories and if I can help you , please get in touch!

Thinking carefully about the security and the layout of your garden can help protect it and your home from crime. The Shed

Sheds typically contain tools, bikes and gardening equipment which are not just valuable but which could prove useful to a burglar, so secure the door with pad bolts and close-shackle padlocks or a padlock alarm. Hinges should be fitted using coach bolts and large backing washers. You could also think about installing a shed alarm and a lockable chest for chemicals and valuable equipment.

Fencing

Rear fences should be two metres high including a trellis to support plants but not to support the weight of a possible intruder. Keep fences and plants in the front garden below a metre in height so you don’t give potential burglars somewhere to hide.

Defensive planting

Re-inforce the garden’s perimeter by planting prickly shrubs or a thorny hedge and train them to grow on the trellis on top of the metre fencing to deter potential offenders.

Side gate

Side gates should be solid, flat faced and the same height as the fence. Secure with pad bolts top and bottom, padlocks and a spring return.

Planter

Secure plant pots to the ground using a bolt and retaining anchor plate and mark tools and furniture with your postcode followed by your house number.

Lighting

Lighting can deter or draw attention to thieves. Use energy saving bulbs activated by a dawn to dusk sensor.

Gravel

Lay gravel on paths and beneath doors and ground-floor windows - burglars don’t like it because it’s noisy to walk on.

Oil tank

Secure an oil tank with padlocks, oil level gauge, security lighting and defensive planting. Speak to your local Crime Reduction Officer for information on suitable alarms. You will find details on the Essex Police website: www.essex. police.uk

Call Essex Police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
