Design student looking for help!

Ooh Dove that would be a good idea. I'm guilty of guessing more than once because I couldn't see the markings. Oil cans (aka motor oil) have a clear section up one side so you can see how many litres you have it would be lovely to have the same on a watering can.

Fidget - maybe your watering can needs to have a little rubber lid to keep the mice out! (Would perhaps keep my feet dry when I over fill it and enthusiastically tip a little too much resulting in more water of the top than out the spout).

What I'd like is for them to have a larger bottom so they're more stable. Being a little balance challenged I always end up putting them down on a pebble or muddy patch of earth and having the whole can tipping over.

Yes Clarington, I have noticed that if someone mentions C4KE then we get kitchen spam after so it is definitely a programme hunting certain words.

Oh dear Edd - what does it say about us as gardeners that our lovely wee forum gets more spam for cake than gardening equipment?!

I think I am working out who the WUM is. Fortunately (s)he's on my blocked list which I can assure you all is a terribly useful thing as it means I don't get to see any of these silly thread views (one wonders how many views are computer programmes hunting the internet looking for certain words with the view to spam / install a virus on the post?) Or whatever the devil else is going on.

Thanks Edd for your advice. I just need to find a safer place now for it to grow happily. I'll be gutted but its just right in the squashing line of my partners big feet.

Can anyone tell me when is the best time to move a crocus?

I've got what looks like a Violet Queen all on its own in an area that keeps getting trampled on but its so delicate and vibrant on an otherwise bare garden I'd quite like to move it or at least put it in a pot until the garden is established.


Daniel.Please can you help?

Pinkie - I was having that last week but it seems to have resolved itself. Perhaps the forum has a bit of a hiccup going?

Stacey that soft toy is lovely! I'd happily be attacked by that than the thing that got me this morning (no cheese last night!)

Quiet day in the office this morning so I'm being productive writing my to do list for the garden... its getting rather long!!

Greenhouse gone to see the wizard of Oz!!!!

Good lord that will be a surprise for whoever finds it on their land!

This weather is making me triple think how I'm going to secure my new greenhouse when we replace the current one.

Definitely a big scaly purple dragon Dove. I had the sweats and everything!!

Backs are tricky devils - always look after them because you'd be amazed how difficult even simple things become. Fortunately I'm very well off as it doesn't affect my hands, I just have to plod along slowly with my little trowel and baby step everywhere.

Woke up thinking I was fighting a dragon.
