I was very interested this weekend to hear that Ann Swithenbank has a replacement hip. I have just had one inserted and am somewhat concerned about my continued ability to garden. My Surgeon was somewhat pessimistic but Ann seems very positive about it.
I appreciate that digging should be kept to a minimum - and am getting some deep (2 foot) beds prepared for my veg. I have a gardener who basically cuts my lawn but will add on any other chores. Unfortunately the worst problem is couch grass, which I have been fighting now for 6 years at this house and I cannot see it leaving in the near future. Last year I was unable to make any headway with it - although I had thought I had improved the situation.
Have you any suggestions. I love my garden and was really despondent at the idea of not being able to do much of anything to it.
