Once there was a snobbery about dahlias and they went right out of fashion. I'm glad they're back, I love them.

no emails as well as small text

Hello all. I'm not getting any emails to say responses have been made, although my box is ticked. I know there is a problem with small text, but I mentioned the emails and Clogerhead replied to say he is getting emails. What about the rest of you? I find it hard to keep in touch without them.

It could be a skimmia, but it looks as though it's suffering from waterlogging.

 This is a laurel when it's a hedge. Yours looks very young still. Ends of braches can be snipped off with secateurs to keep tidy and bushy. If you use a hedge cutter it can cut the rather large leaves in half which is not very attractive.

Weekend 22 March

Obelixx, it's south of Poitiers, but that's my daughter. I'm in Dordogne. If any gardeners who correspond here are passing by drop in for a cuppa!

Morning all. I shall bore everyone by writing what I just wrote on some other threads!

Warm and sunny here, 19° forecast for this afternoon! Spring has sprung! I wonder how long for. This is why people move abroad I suppose.

More than the size of the text, I'm really missing the emails to tell me that people have posted on subjects I'm interested in. Have to search through latest posts. No one seems to have mentioned this. Are you all getting emails?

Weekend 22 March

Mild and sunny here. 19° forecast for this afternoon. No gardening this weekend as going to daughter near Poitiers. May have to help in her garden as she ordered loads of roses with the birthday cheque I sent her.

Morning all.

What I'm missing more than bigger text (which can be changed with ctrl +) are the emails to say someone has written to a thread that I'm interested in. Now I have to search through latest posts.

Spring has sprung in Dordogne! This must be why people move south. 11° sunny, 19° forecast for this afternoon. No frosts for next week, but I'll believe that when I see it!

Off to my daughter's, near Poitiers, after lunch, for the weekend. Hope the site is back to normal when I get back.

Morning all, welcome back Woo2.

Thanks for the info on the text. What I'm really missing are the emails to tell you that someone has written on a post you are following.

Perhaps this time Spring has sprung in SW France at last. 11° and sunny now 19° forecast this afternoon. Going to my daughter's for the weekend. Hope the tech problems have been sorted when I get back.


Named Plants

Years ago my 4 children gave me a pink clematis Montana called Elizabeth. I still have it and the children have all left home and produced 6 grandchildren between them (so far!)
