Loss of tool bar

Posted: 06/03/2015 at 06:59
Stacey - the toolbar doesn't work with an iphone (ios7) although does with my ipad. The techies have been looking into it for a while - but I would guess it won't get sorted til next time the site has a revamp. It would be nice to post pics from a phone - but i am getting good at doing smilies with symbols !!

Great to see you Stacey . Sounds like chillimania . Good luck with reclaiming the trashed garden - good time of year to start - things will grow back really quickly.

Blueberry advice please

We have a couple of earliblue - lots of fruit and good flavour. Just need to find a way to get to them before the blackbirds

aged manure advice?

Posted: 06/03/2015 at 06:38
John - if its ready it will be crumbly and have no smell. If its not ready then it might burn plants roots - but pretty sure 10 years will have done the trick. Horse manure takes 6 months to a year.
