Plant ID - post questions for GW Magazine

Posted: 11/08/2014 at 12:38

Need help identifying a mystery plant in your garden, or one that you've seen on your travels?

Between now and noon, Tuesday 19 August 2014, members of the Gardeners' World Magazine team will be on hand to help. Simply upload an image of the plant (as clear as possible, please!) and we'll post our replies at regular intervals through the day.

Please note this a plant ID thread - if you need help with other gardening problems, do head over to the problem-solving section.

We look forward to seeing your images!

Hello hogweed,

I took this back to the dev team, and several of our developers read through all the comments on this thread. They're all confident that it's not possible these pop ups were transmitted via gardenersworld.com - it's simply a coincidence that it came up for two separate people while viewing this site. It's quite possibly a browser-related issue. Please be assured it's safe to view gardenersworld.com and that doing so won't transmit any bug or viruses to your computer.

Hello everyone,

I checked this out with a member of our technical team who assured me that any virus/malware won't have been transmitted via this site. We have robust security measures in place, and if we were the target of any dubious activity our filters would pick it up. It's well worth installing security software to ensure that you use the internet safely. You can set up regular, automated scans to detect any potentially harmful code that has been downloaded onto your machine.

Thanks for raising the issue.

Bbc Gardeners World Live at the NEC - humph!

Posted: 10/06/2014 at 17:01

Hello Tootles,

Thanks for your feedback on the show. We sent your comments to Sarah Sandys-Renton on the GW Live team and here is her response:

"We’d like to respond to your comments about the forthcoming show, as we’re sorry to hear of your disappointment.
 
The Gardeners’ World Theatre does cost an additional £2 for a seat because we invest in a very prestigious line-up of speakers. It’s an open theatre so is not out of view from everyone. We know that seeing a sit-down theatre session isn’t what every visitor desires, so it’s down to the individual to decide whether to book seats. It is the only ticketed theatre, and we have additional live stages which do not require booking including the Garden Solutions Stage, the Kitchen Garden Talks Tent and two demo areas called the RHS Potting Benches. All of these are free to drop in and out of at your will and have extremely good line-ups including Monty Don, Carol Klein and Joe Swift.
 
The Garden Walks are an exclusive chance to get a preview of the gardens with either GQT’s Matt Biggs or the Big Allotment Challenge’s Jim Buttress. Due to the nature of a walk and talk, these can only be managed in small groups for 20 before the show opens, so as with any such experience, there’s an additional cost.
 
I’m afraid that the £10 car parking is an NEC charge, and it is possible that they have a premium parking option. All car parks are serviced by shuttle buses should you require them. Shopping bags are simply show merchandise and are completely optional, as are all the added extras which we offer our visitors.
 
We’re really sorry that you feel misled, but would like to reassure you that all the extras are just that, optional extras. To take up, or not, at your will. On the whole they’re very popular which is why we run them year after year.
 
We hope that you have a great time, as it’s going to be a fabulous show this year. "

Hello everyone,

If you could avoid discussing/speculating about users who are new to the forum, that will help to maintain the friendly atmosphere that people value here. If the forum is to be useful to everybody, people need to feel comfortable posting.

The 'no bickering' policy still stands and we will delete threads if necessary.

Thank you.
