Thanks, happymarion. Here, from the Chrome help page, is the way to increase the font size on web pages:

How to set the font size for all web pages

You can adjust the size of text on web pages.

  1. Click the spanner icon on the browser toolbar.
  2. Select Options.
  3. Click Under the Bonnet.
  4. In the "Web Content" section, use the "Font size" menu to make adjustments.

Some websites prevent the browser from changing only text size. For those sites, Chrome won’t be able to adjust the font size.

(If you want to increase the size of everything on a web page, including images, the instructions are here.)

I hope this helps - let me know if you have any problems.

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).

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!

Your wishlist

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.)

Deformed Tree Branches

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!)
