My New Arbour

Posted: 02/06/2013 at 11:53

That's OH in the arbour. It was his delayed birthday present, should have been February! It's a very old wall and it's staying put!

I would be happy to look like Rachel de Thame!

You mean when it wouldn't let you sign in? How frustrating! It's letting me type at the moment.

My New Arbour

Posted: 02/06/2013 at 09:22

Hello Scotcat. I have a new arbour too. We wanted one like yours, with a roof, and we saw one on the forum with a roof, but we live in France and couldn't find one anywhere. I found a mail order one, but it was nearly £900! Too much. Eventually we found ours as a flat pack from a DIY place in the middle of the countryside near a small village! Here it is, a bit in the distance:-

Trouble typing on some of the threads

Has anyone else got this problem? When I type on some of the threads on the GW site letters keep getting left out and sometimes I have to press the keys quite hard to make them work. As I type this it's OK, but I just answered a question on compost and it was very bad, some threads are worse than others. Doesn't happen anywhere else, emails etc, so can't be my laptop.

Used and old compost - is it good for anything?

I never empty my pots completely, cost a fortune in compost! I top up the top few inches with fresh compost and add slow release fertiliser.

I've used old compost like yours, mixed up well and it was OK.

What did you do in your garden today?

LeadFarmer, you know that's not what I meant!! But I could have done as my son is the dentist.

Lovely photos everyone, I've only just found this thread, been busy. My Cecile Brunner climber is out, such exquiste little buds.

Didn't do a lot in my garden today, kept raining this afternoon. Planted out courgettes, cucumbers, squash and the rest of the runner beans. Did some weeding. Went to dentist this morning and made strawberry jam. Didn't rain this morning of course.
