Have I overdone it?

Posted: 04/09/2014 at 09:02

OK, everyone. This is getting silly.

Anybody is entitled to start a thread on this forum. There are many thousands of pages on that forum, and many participants. It's inevitable that there will be disputes and differences of opinion from time to time. That's fine, within limits. What isn't fine is choosing to open a thread by somebody you've previously complained about and then goading them.

The forum is open to everyone and all are welcome, providing they abide by the code of conduct. 'Getting on somebody else's nerves' is not a breach of the code of conduct. Posting rude or aggressive comments about/to them is a breach of the code of conduct. It isn't pleasant and it isn't worthy of intelligent adults.

As I've stated elsewhere before, this is a gardening forum, not a kindergarten.

Lord knows this forum isn't the most technically advanced in the world, but we do provide an 'ignore' button. If you're not willing to use it then I'm afraid you'll have to accept that people can't be forced off the forum simply because you don't like them. Use your energy more constructively by starting a thread of your own.

We run the site with a very small team and we'd rather spend our time adding new projects, features, blogs and competitions to the site - things that make a positive difference to people's lives - than getting involved in needless arguments.

I'll end this tetchy outburst by asking everybody (and I do mean everybody) to change the subject back to gardening. I'm not going to delete this thead, but I will close it to further comments if there is any further unpleasantness.

Thank you.

Hello Bekkie. I'm sorry that the experience of using the site on mobile is less than ideal. It's something we're aware of and are working to improve the situation. We can't make all the necessary changes immediately, but please be assured it's on our 'to do' list!

Hello Mike. Thanks for the suggestion. Clarington is quite correct, though, that such a list would make it easy for spammers to target users of the site with private messages. That wouldn't prove to be a very popular addition to the site, I think!   We do consider all suggestions for upgrading and improving the site - we're currently working through the results of the audience research we conducted earlier in the year, in order to plan the forthcoming development work. As ever, feel free to post other feedback/suggestions here on the forum, or drop us a line at website@gardenersworld.com. Alternatively, do send me a private message.

Thanks for your posts, everyone. We've enjoyed seeing your images, and it's been fun to solve some horticultural mysteries! The clematis proved to be a particular challenge...

This thread is now closed, but do please keep posting your images in the Plants section of the forum if you need help with IDs.

Hello Gardengirl. It should be fine in both sun or partial shade, in a well-drained soil.

Reply to Debs13: it's a bit tricky to tell from your image! Do you have any more that you could upload?

Hello Gardengirl. I think nutcutlet is correct, that your plant is Corydalis ochroleuca, the pale corydalis. It's a mound-forming, evergreen that self seeds freely. The flowers are very pretty, aren't they?

Hello Daintiness.

David Hurrion, Deputy Editor of Gardeners' World Magazine, thinks that this variety may well be Clematis 'H F Young'. You can view our plant profile of it here: http://www.gardenersworld.com/plants/clematis-h-f-young/1744.html

Our image in the profile looks much more purple than your images, but if you look at Google image search results, there are some that look much closer: http://bit.ly/1p0a5Kl

What do you think?

Yes, of course, Bamboogie! I think you're right...
