That's true - there are some of the gardeners from the old site on there.  Only a small number at the moment but hopefully grows

Honeyberry

Does anyone have any experience of growing the Honeyberry aka Lonicera Caerula.  It has the next 'super berry food' apparently.  Some information suggests it needs more than one variety for pollination, others don't mention this.

Can you advise please?

Gardeners Click was a good website with some great participants and I had some lovely connections with gardeners up and down the country - its a real shame - Is no one going to take it over?

Root maggots (I think)

Nemasys works well for me in north glos - its available online from several sources, they are a nematode, but they only work on the grubs not the adults.  nice warm and well drained pots they love, so keep trying to spot the adults too & well just kill the little devils.  if you touch them, they play dead and drop to the ground up side down making them even harder to spot, like the red lily beetle.  the nematodes need moist soil to work, so you can't let the pots dry out & they don't work if its too cold.  If you've spotted some there is probable as many again that are hidden.  They don't only live in pots - found one of the grubs in my lawn last weekend!  have good easter

Do you consider gardening to be like art?

yes definately an art and a skill to get 'right' whatever that bit  - creation in 3D, with the knowledge to know what it looks like when planted, but also in years to come, and without knowing what nature will do to play her part.  Great therapy too
