New site - is it easy to use?

Posted: 01/12/2011 at 12:19

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.

Are you mystified by terms such as pollarding, pleaching or stool pruning? Don’t be embarrassed to ask for explanations of strange garden jargon. Also, swap tips on double digging, seed sowing and a hundred other gardening tasks.

From novices to veg-show veterans, this is the forum for anybody who loves to grow edible crops.  Discuss the dos and don’ts of tomato growing, the pros and cons of potato cultivation and wade into the debate on chemical vs. organic gardening.

Don't be downcast if your favourite plants are ravaged by bugs, beetles or blight. Share your woes with fellow gardeners, and someone will come to your aid. Similarly, if you can answer a cry for help, please do so!
