The threads now take up more space which leads to a lot of scrolling on the blank glarey page. I know it's been mentioned before but it is very boring. 

Could a jump to top/bottom of the page button be added? It would really help to move around the forum. The endless scrolling of whiteness is not a pleasant experience.

I'm assuming that this thread is the main one to add suggestions and feedback to the team

See original post

 Hollie, there is a "back to top" on the bottom of the page. If you have a laptop you can scroll by pressing on the up/down arrow buttons, or click on your mouse on the right hand scroll bar and drag it down keeping the mouse click pressed down. Much quicker than turning the mouse wheel.

At the moment, but I've said before and so have others, what I miss most is being able to go straight to the last post you read and email notifications.

Good heavens, Daniel, are you still on duty at this time on a Saturday night? Even with Beyoncé!

High cover in shallow soil

Posted: 07/05/2016 at 16:33

I live in a forest in SW France with a quarry down the road and the topsoil is very shallow, less than 3 feet, yet the forest is full of oak, hornbeam, birch, wild cherry and other trees. They aren't as big as they would be in an English forest, but pretty big all the same.

But if you have a building nearby you can't plants trees too close in case the roots cause damage. How tall do you need? Would shrubs do it? Or small trees like Amelanchier or Crab Apples?

Shopping and HW today, but will soon go out to the garage and set up the plant stall. OH has helped me put the trestle tables out.

Lunch break.

How exciting Panda! Will you wear white or coloured? Long or short? Don't forget now the weather is warmer that it will be winter! Silly comment, how could you forget!

Thank you obelixx, it seems the end key is 1 with number lock off as it gave the full address on the bar, but it wouldn't let me change the page, I probably didn't do it properly, not very techy. I wish the page numbers were at the top as well as at the bottom.

Morning all. Thank you for the encouraging comments about my Open Day.

Just realised it's grandson's 2nd birthday on Monday. Must rush off to buy a pressie, last year they came to my Open Day.

I've done loads of gardening in the last few days, am stiff and achey. All beds now weeded, done some planting, done supports for the broad beans and netting for the mange tout peas. Also been watering, it's been so warm.

Busy-Lizzie, try to click on the address and then either use the End key or Right arrow to navigate to the end of the line.

See original post

I don't know which is the End key, I have a French AZERTY keyboard. I clicked an arrow that points to the right but nothing happened.
