Talkback: Growing sweet peas

Posted: 09/03/2014 at 10:36

Have no problem with sharing what I know about sweet pea growing folks, but if this thread evolves into a Q&A thread, it will perhaps get a tad confusing when there is already a similar & long running one in The Potting Shed.

Just spent a while catching up on this thread, stunning photo's everyone I especially like your seed heads Fidget and thanks for the link to Danny Greens site David, amazing, I now want to go to Finland and Iceland!

If I were to buy a camera for around £80ish what would you recommend? and would I get more for my money if I bought second hand or is that a false economy?

Ashleigh - I agree with fidget, avoid second hand  cameras....certainly unless you know the camera & seller.

Perhaps worth noting that you can buy a new Canon Powershot A2500 (Argos) for around £60. This has a 5x zoom & 16 mega-pixels and quite capable of taking some very good pictures.

Oh course, it wouldn't be a match for Danny Green's shots.

Beautiful pic, KEF

Btw, the memory card problem could happen with any camera.....or any memory card to be precise.

There is something similar on the video tapes I use. There is a slide on the side to lock it and stop it being taped over.


Yes, similar thing, made me think for a while.

Nice fish shots.

Forester - thort I may have done....sorry.

Had an experience with my camera today that was rather puzzling to solve, so I'll share it on the basis it may help someone in a similar situation.

When I turned on the camera a message appeared in the LCD screen saying 'memory card protected'....this had the affect of locking-up the camera completely.

After much faffing about I found that there is a little lever situated on the left hand side of the memory card, this must have been moved whist removing & replacing the something worth checking if you experience a similar thing.

I suppose its purpose is to prevent valued pics being deleted by mistake.

Can't say that I'm normally a Clff fan, but he sings this 'Ocean Deep' and it absolutely blows me away.

Oh...and 'Miss you nights'.

Can't let this thread not to include 'Easy' (like a Sunday morning) by Lionel Richie.......or Matt Monro's 'Softly as I leave you'.

I love that song David,  but prefer the Alison krauss version, she has a beautiful voice 

Hello Tootles  Sally cinnamon is my favourite SR song, love them and my eldest son does too, we call that our song as we play it very loud in the car!!!


Just played it on YouTube, Tracy.....tingles down the spine!

Played Wet Wet Wet - 'love is all around' & Brian Adams - 'everything I do', while I was there.....quality!
