        Hi Shiney,
        I wish you'd posted something in the Fuchsia thread.

        At this time of year you could have pruned them back to the crown just below ground level , replaced the soil with fresh compost and mulch and sprayed any new growth with a product containing Carbaryl every two to four weeks. A temperature below 5 deg kills them off , so next Spring as long as you kept on spraying they should have been fine.
        It is classed as a major threat in hotter countries/areas such as California and the Med area of France etc.

        Also , it only really affects Fuchsias with a heavy gene pool of F. Magellanica and other South American Species. Many basket/double/novelty cultivars are unaffected.

          I had co-codomol for my toothache. They made me constipated.

            Sounds painful @Kandy the doc may give you something like gabapentin which is used for various issues but is a good nerve pain blocker.

              Managed to survive the weekend with the inlaws. We walked up to mentmore towers and had a sneaky snout around the towers and a nosey (you're not supposed to!). Saw this beautiful poppy!

              Going to sneak back in a weeks time and see if the poppy head is ready to pick! He he.

                I had/have a trapped nerve in my left hip/leg and my GP prescribed Co-codamol as Ibupforen, and the like, didn't have any effect. To be honest, I found that the prescribed Co-codamol has had no effect either and it wasn't until I resorted to going to a Physiotherapist that I partially solved the problem. The Physiotherapist asked if I was taking any pain killers and I told her about taking Ibupforen, etc, and Co-codamol. She told me that Co-codamol was for muscular pain etc, not for Neuralgia and Neurophathic pain. I asked what would give relief to nerve pain and she quoted......

                Amitriptyline
                Duloxetine
                Pregabalin
                Gabapentin

                Knowing that you never get something for nothing and that there's always side effects to such things she told me.when I asked, that there were side effects naming one as Sleepiness:snooze:. That was enough for me to discard those options as I wouldn't like to go through the rest of my Life half asleep [quiet in the back row, please:nonofinger::heehee:]. I'm only quoting my case but did the Co-codamol work for you, "M"?
