I've had no problems with the site using IE or Firefox for ages (months) now but I do use adblockers so I very strongly suspect Dove's right about it being dodgy adverts.
For IE, I recommend installing a tracking protection list (TPL) it's just a simple click - advice from Microsoft here:
I use EasyPrivacy TPL.
For Firefox, the best is Adblock Plus, also available for Android:
Same (Adblock plus) for Chrome:
One of the campanulas but not sure which.
Had about 50mm in the last week, 3/4 of which came down Sunday night. Much needed here (Leics)! Can do without the low temperatures though - squashes and melons not setting too well - will be lucky to get one fruit off each plant this year I reckon.
If it was well rotted horse manure I'd agree too but it isn't, is it! The post I replied to (from KFH2) clearly says new cow manure with straw in it.
It's Italian for 'red leaved' (or more correctly 'red husk'.) Rossa is feminine and Rosso is masculine so depends on whether you think of your lettuces as male or female!
KFH2, I wouldn't recommend using fresh manure on growing plants. It really needs to be composted first and if it has straw in it, I'd say it isn't ready yet. Either make a compost heap with it or mix it in with your existing compost heap if you have one. By the end of the year it should be fine to use and you can spread it over your veg beds before the winter sets in.
You can upload them to a photo sharing site and post the links though.
Their 2nd year should have been their most productive year rosemummy. I wonder if they needed more feeding? They are greedy plants and quickly exhaust multi-purpose compost. If in large pots, try a mix of 50 per cent bagged farmyard manure and 50 percent JI No 3. Works great for me.
Me too. Willowherb seeds get everywhere here, pots, hanging baskets, borders, veg beds even in indoor plant pots!
