Thanks Graceland and donutsmrs, we'll pass on your wishes to the programme team. Happy Christmas to you both, also.

How to give feedback about the new site

Hello happymarion. Yes, it's possible to magnify the text in your web browser. If you can tell me which web browser you use (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome or Safari) and whether you're on a mac or a PC, I'll post details of how to do it (there are different keyboard shortcuts for different browsers).

Thanks, roseyrow - I hope you'll become a 'regular' on the forum.

And, thank you, as ever, for your contributions to Your comments are invariably thoughtful, postitive and constructive, and we always look forward to reading them. We're very excited about the new developments we have lined up in the coming year, and hope that you'll enjoy them.

Hello botticelliwoman - Kate Bradbury asked the very same thing earlier this week, actually. We'll add a wildlife gardening folder to the forum very soon!

Good idea, alan.noakes, and one that has cropped up in editorial meetings before. It's definitely on our wishlist, too!

Hello steve001. Regarding the videos, if you have a particular topic that you're interested in, then the quickest way to find it would be to use our new search facility, located at the top of every page. When the results are returned, click 'Articles', which will narrow the search down to projects, features and blogs. If we have a video on a particular subject then it will show in that list.

We're currently in the process of 'tagging' all of our existing site content, which will make the content even easier to find. For example, all tomato-related content will have the tag 'growing tomatoes', and clicking that link will return a list of all projects, videos, problem-solving pages, features and blogs on that topic. The tags should be live on the site early next year.

In the meantime, if you're still having problems finding any particular content, just let us know. (And if we don't have what you're looking for, we can add it to the wishlist.)

Hello chrislobsterman. This sounds like fasciation, and it's not harmful. (There are some images of fasciated cherry trees here.)

You can either cut the affected growth out, or, as our following guide says, enjoy it for its curiosity value! More information about fasciation.

Hello dheckert - yes, good point. We're still experimenting with the homepage, so will look at adding author names to the blogs. (Good to hear that value the bloggers so much!)

Information for disabled gardeners is a very good idea, graceland - I've added it to our discussion list for new content.

New site - bugs

Hello finoulamcc, we'll be adding a new, localised 7-day weather forecast for gardeners to the site early next year. It will include details such as wind speed and soil temperature, and alert you when you need to carry out tasks such as protecting plants from cold. Before the new feature launches, you can view forecast at the BBC Weather site.
