I have some growing nicely from seed at the moment ......hard to believe thats how big they're going to get.....still, I suppose from little acorns mighty oak trees grow

Why did Chris do that?

Shouldn't he be down in Chelsea, bulding his Gt Ormond Street garden?  Maybe he needed some Thuya cuttings to help decorate it......keep your eyes peeled when the Chelsea coverage comes around

Morning all Later start than normal - working from home today so the commute is not as long

Enjoying having Chicklet home but, due to some bad timing, I am going away for the weekend.  I go away once a year with my sisters (leaving all partners, children and dogs behind at home).  We've been doing it for about 15 years.  This year we are headed to Lake Garda .....never been, but hoping for some stunning scenery......and lots of coffee and cakeπŸ°β˜•οΈπŸ°β˜•οΈ

So play nicely whilst I am gone and I'll see you Tuesday morning.

Hi J&H - email notifications are on the list of things to fix, as is the endless scrollng.  Some improvements were released today, and there are more to come, so bear with . If you want a quick way of finding your own posts then click on your name at the top right hand side of the screen and you should get an option to view "my posts".  Good luck with your daphne too

Yellow leaves on Daphne

Hi there J&H ......we are all getting used to the new format has pros and cons.  Hopefully some more changes coming this week which will deal with some of the latter.

I have an old well established daphne that always has yellow dropping leaves at this time of year.  They are gradually being replaced by fresh new ones.  Although it is evergreen, it changes all its leaves at about this time.  Can you see new leaves coming?  In which case it is probably just going through the same "refresh" process.  If the yellow leaves are its only leaves, and there are no signs of new, then it might be another problem - maybe give it a feed with a seaweed tonic to see if it picks up.
