Debbie, can you start a new thread for your question on the Problem Solving forum ?- if you put an appropriate heading I'm sure someone with some expertise in that area will help - they may not notice your question on this thread
I'm still unable to enter competitions from the site. I was told many months ago the techies were on the case. I use Google Chrome as it seems to have the fastest access to the web in the bogs of Dartmoor. Can anyone help?
Not sure which forum to enter?.
how can I keep my poinsettas going for as long as possible.
for a new problem, post a new thread, that way you will get the answer.
Hi Roses and welcome
Can I suggest that you go to Forum Topics at the top here, then onto Plants, and then open a new thread with someting like 'Keeping Poinsettas - advice please' in the title. Then in the bit below tell us a bit about your plants and what facilities you've got - greenhouse, conservatory, kitchen windowsill, etc and I'm sure someone will have some advice for you.
HELP, HELP HELP I HAVE A VERY POORLY CAMELIA. IT HAS A FEW FLOWERS AND A VERY FEW LEAVES. I DO LIVE IN SOUTH WALES SO IT HAS BEEN VERY COLD. ANY ADVISE, PLEASE?
Hi Ginnie and welcome - I'm not a camellia expert, we have the wrong sort of soil, but if you start a new thread about your camellia on the Problems section I'm sure one of the others will see it and try to help
Hi, thank you so much, I will do that now
An area for children on the actual website could be useful, especially to help wildlife as chidlren are interested. As the average age of the magazine is 60 (apparently), it's a shame that there are not ideas for projects for children that some grandparents may wish to do. The RHS has a scheme for schools but just a few simple projects would do as lots of people are keen supporters of this website and the magazine. If this is the wrong place to air this idea - sorry. Many schools have an ECO thread to them and would love grandparents (or parents, aunts, uncles ... to help. Get grandparents to involve children before they reach their teens and become distracted with other things.
If I've missed the link for children, sorry - it wasn't obvious.
Do you mean a section on the forum for children?
Someone suggested that once before if I remember correctly. I think it would be a shame to have a separate part of the forum for children .... we have had children and young people ask questions on here and I think we've been able to help them. I'm not keen on children being marginalised into Children's Only sections - and who would answer their queries?
However, a 'young person's project' section in the magazine might be a positive move, and this could then be expanded on in the website.
I think it's really important to introduce children to growing things at a really early age - I was only two and a half when I planted my first crocus bulbs and not much more than that when I discovered that horrid prickly bushes somehow magically produced luscious raspberries - I was hooked
Are people able to get up & dig their plots yet ?? I'm in Devonshire and my plot is far tooo wet to dig.
Is it OK to cut fruit bushes back now ? (Goosegogs, & currants )
Arbutus1, I suggest you post your question in the Fruit and Veg forum, the experts there will be able to advise.
