Help needed!

Posted: 27/10/2015 at 21:23

Jo 47 suggests I post my problem here. Hope someone can help! I love putting photos on the forum and usually manage to get good- quality pictures from my iPhone.   But every time, I have to go through a Photoshop/resize rigmarole before they can be posted. Others don't seem to have this problem ...

Many thanks, jo 47. Will gratefully take your advice.

And I thought it was only me who had problems! Glad to know it's not only me .... The problem I can't solve is: when I want to post a photo I have to go through a whole photoshop resize thing before I can post? Why is that? Does anyone else have this problem? ( I usually take photos with my iPhone )

What a relief! Didn't sleep all night. Thought you meant I had broken some forum rule!

Have a look at "shoot gardening". I think it's a fantastic website. You can record everything in your garden, get updates every month to remind you what you should be doing for all the plants you have in your garden - and lots more.

A lot of my fuchsias are in positions where they are buffeted by winter winds ....... I reduce their height in the Autumn and then cut right back in the Spring as previously advised.

Vine Weevil

I hadn't noticed any problems with one of my heuchera - until it was literally "blown out of the pot". There were hardly any roots left and I quickly identified the vine weevil in the pot. But - I washed and replanted the heuchera, kept it in shade for a while and it is now doing fine again. So don't despair! I shall use provado early in the year next time.
