HELLO FORKERS May 2016 Edition

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.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Posted: 06/05/2016 at 23:07

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.

I hope your knee feels less sore in the morning, Linda.


Phew, all the beds have been weeded! Tomorrow will be clearing up, putting out seating and table for refreshments, washing kitchen floor (it's revolting), preparing helpers' lunch for Sunday, getting cakes out of the freezer and icing a couple etc.

Awful new format for forum

I use Fork handles, small, friendly, but always open to newcomers. There are a group of people who broke away from GW when there was unpleasantness from trolls a few years ago.

Topbird - there is, for now, a quick way of doing this. In your address bar you will see this (the part I have put in bold is the page number):


http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/site-feedback/your-new-look-forum/975698-17.html 


If you change this number to 10, you will be taken to page 10:


http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/site-feedback/your-new-look-forum/975698-10.html 


See original post

 How can I do that? My address bar only shows up to "forum/site-fee" so I can't see 17 or change it to 10. I use a lap top.

I never received an email.

Disappointed in GW response

Posted: 06/05/2016 at 09:03

I think if everyone put their complaints on the thread that Nora (who works for GW) started they are more likely to be seen  http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/site-feedback/site-feedback/your-new-look-forum/975698-15.html/


I see that pansyface has put hers on there as well!

How do you get into your borders?

I have stepping stones in the widest beds. But when everything has grown I often can't find the stepping stones!

Have I grown too much

Posted: 06/05/2016 at 08:53

I have hundreds, but then I'll be having a plant sale on Sunday at my Open Garden. But some of them are too small to sell! This is part of the GH on the 19th April, there are more in the coldframes, including perennials.
