Ah, victory! Thanks for persevering. That is about as angular and formal a design as you could have, isn't it? Very striking...

Hello happymarion, it's lovely to see you on the forum. I'm ashamed to confess I've never been to Kiftsgate - I must go. I'm sorry you've had trouble uploading your image. Could you try again over the weekend, and let us know how you get on? If you have any further difficulty our tech team will sort it out for you.

Hello, MsAnjiuk, thanks for the suggestion. That wouldn't be a bore at all - it's very important that we help people who are new to gardening. We're working on labelling our existing project pages more clearly for beginners, and also looking at other ways of helping people establish their first garden. If there's anything in particular you'd like to see (e.g. advice on choosing plants), do let us know. A blog aimed at beginners is an interesting idea - we'll add that to our list of ideas to discuss!

Point taken about the ads, rona&gordon. We do our best to ensure that the ads we carry on the site are appropriate, and likely to be of interest to our audience. Advertisements do help to fund the site, and we need to feature them, but if you see one that feel isn't appropriate for the site, do let us know. Regarding the positioning of ads, we try and space them out, so they don't in the way of the editorial content.

Thanks, rona&gordon. We love the fact that so many people regularly comment on the blogs, but as you say, the forum means that they can start discussions of their own. We hope to see you on here regularly!

Hello CyprusLenny. Yes, we're very much looking forward to site visitors contributing their own solutions to gardening problems - it will greatly enrich the site if everyone shares their collective experience.

Hello Patricia. Many thanks for your feedback. It's great to hear that you like the What to do now website, and that you find the website useful. I'm sorry to hear that you find it tricky to obtain some of the plants listed in our pots and containers section. We will be looking at significantly improving the offers and shopping opportunities on the site over the coming months, so please bear with us on that one!

Welcome to the potting shed, where you can chew the fat about any garden-related topic, trade gossip or maybe just let off steam. Recommend a favourite gardening book, discuss a recent radio programme or share your predictions for flower show medal winners.

Welcome to the brand new forum

Posted: 29/11/2011 at 12:47

Welcome to our brand new forum, where you can talk plants, problems and all things horticultural with like-minded gardeners.

Whether you’re a rose grower, an allotmenteer, an orchid obsessive or a general all-rounder, this is the space to share your passion. From complete beginners to seasoned experts, our online community is as diverse as the plant kingdom itself.

Is there a question you’re burning to ask? Perhaps you need to identify a strange new plant that has seeded itself in your borders. Post a photo, and it probably won’t be long before the mystery is solved.

If you grow majestic marrows or stately verbascums, then share the secret of your success. Or, if your hostas are miraculously slug-free, tell us how you manage it (you obviously have special powers).

Whatever the topic – design, double digging, air layering or cloud pruning – you’re sure to find something to interest you. Browse the themed folders, add your voice to the conversation, and start a new discussion at any time by clicking ‘create new thread’.

One of the joys of gardening is that we never stop learning. There’s no such thing as a ‘stupid question’ on a gardening forum, so don’t be backwards in coming forwards - gardeners are a generous bunch, and somebody will be glad to help. And please share your wisdom with any first-time gardeners...

That’s enough from me – over to you. It’s your forum, so please enjoy it.
