Yes, KEF, we considered ditching that when looking for ways to save vertical space on the listing pages,  but we felt that it was too useful to lose...

plant pauper - the problem we have here is that colour varies massively from device to device. Not even 'pure white' will display consistently between phones, tablets and laptops. It looks very green on some screens, much less so on others. What we were aiming for, rather than everybody's ideal definition of green, was a fairly muted shade that didn't glare or demand too much attention - it's supposed to provide a comfortable background. There's no way we'll achieve consensus on colour, unfortunately - tastes vary so wildly.

Thanks obelixx. We'll certainly look further at spacing / design detail - I don't know yet what we can do and what we can't.

Re: Ad Blocker, that will create blank spaces, but I'll maintain a discreet silence on that score...

It is green plant pauper - just a rather muted, 'grown up' shade of green. But colour is very subjective, isn't it - one person's 'muted green' is another person's 'mucky tea towel'...

My mum is very old LG the L - so she probably wouldn't mind (and it's her birthday tomorrow, so she'll be even older).

Don't worry about me, Shrinking Violet. And you'd have to be very old to be old enough to be my mum...
