Emma, spend the money, as Lou has said it's worth it in the long run.

De-Leaf my Bare root Rose plant?

Korno, everybody has said water it, which is correct, however you need to water it weekly. Bare root roses take a year to settle and get good root systems, and they need huge amounts of water to develop the root systems,  so do it weekly no matter what weather you have.

Lots of good suggestions, AND commitments, excellent. I'm cautiously optimistic.

Louise have to agree with plant pauper here give it a rest. Let it recover for a few weeks, then if it needs attention do it then. Lawns are a labour of love, not though, a love I've ever hankered after.

I think 99% are disgruntled, however Daniel has promised change, so if the modifications work patience would be good. I know the criticism has stung better than a nest of wasps, so let's give them a chance.

To me it looks like a lily, but I can't enlarge it either and I'm on a pad.

Suzie you may be over watering it. A two gallon can of water once a week would be all that it would need, however they're better off in the ground than in pots. If you can I'd get it into the soil.

Daniel yes I've been critical and deservedly so, but I'll be one of the first I hope to shower praise, when, not if, you get it right.

Daniel Haynes,

I am, reading the above post, somewhat taken aback by its tone. 

I'm pleased at the acknowledgement that mistakes have been made and that beta testing wasn't done as it should have been. I'm also pleased that the team are working to resolve the issues raised. I look forward to seeing them, and if, and its a big if, they work and if it benefits the users.

However to then state you will delete posts ,"those posted with the intention of luring other users away from this forum" is from a customer service point of view an absolute no no. 

You state you are a business, we know that, thats why the forum was changed, the BBC needed to make extra money and forum members have paid the price in that headlong rush for the extra cash.

Do supermarkets threaten to deduct points from loyalty card schemes if a customer uses another supermarket? No. They look for ways to regain trust and loyalty.

The members of the forum are your customers you don't post an implied threat if they choose or consider going elsewhere and talk to each other about going elsewhere. It's a complete no no.

I wouldn't dare say what you've said to a customer. I'd have been sacked on the spot.
