Hopefully I have arrived without doing anything incorrectly. Hello Sotongeoff, glad to see you here.


Hi to all my friends from the BBC message board!  I look forward to reading all you discussions again!

Nice to see all you old new faces


Hello everyone! Not used this part of the website before, but now it's forced on us all to find a way to keep in touch, I'll look forward to seeing names I know.

I've come over as well - was Kathy on the other site. Hopefully we can get the same kind of help with our gardening questions.

Good to see some familar names and know I'll get good advice and a good laugh too      

Just taken out a black kale which a) had run to seed and b) had flopped over an Oriental poppy. The flowers so pretty though, have filled a vase with them. Am sure I'll regret it in a day or so, rotting brassica smell not my favourite. Amazed how quickly things are germinating now, have peas ready to go out, potted on early march sown toms, deploying cloches over planting sites. Better get back out there before the next downpour.

Can't upload my Yak avatar at the moment, so will have to be 'faceless bod'.  Have been on this site for a long time, but never used the forum.  This 'old Yak' is finding it hard to learn new tricks. <biggrin> So nice to see messageboard friends on here, but don't expect me to post much as I prefer to be 'SirLurkaLot'.

However, following Monty Don pinching out his sweet peas - if you save the pinchings and dib them singly around a pot, most of them will root, hence more sweet peas for your money. <thumbsup>


Yay, the wonders of lateral thinking!  I did download my avatar, but not without head scratching.   I have been saddened by the gradual decline of the gardening messageboard on the BBC as I am sure all the 'original members' were.   However, I wish all messageboarders much happiness and fun on this forum and I look forward to a bright future for us all.


Me too and have also downloded a profile picture

Yep! I'm here too Dipped my toe in the water and answered a couple of questions to see how things work! Seems to be a bit lumpy to me, but perhaps when I get around the site a bit things will smooth out. Looking forward to the " Craic"

Yakram, I had problems with my avatar as well.  Tried a few last night - nothing doing. Then it worked first time this morning 

Hello from another refugee -  thanks for the links - made it easier to find you all, but I feel a bit like a rodent escaping from that sinking ship................


What a lovely idea for a welcoming threadI had only come on to  look at the site and I saw this title and joined straight away and already I've seen so many familiar faces.
