Well, that works for me but it means I don't have smilies - I'll manage without

I don't have a task bar at all....not even the all important 'little tree', so will need to go back to 'advanced editor'....lesser of the two evils.

Horse Manure - what to do with it

I would add to that, Ma is very well versed in the ways of agriculture & horticulture...and what she doesn't know about horses isn't really worth knowing.

Frank....apart from also being extremely well informed on matters of agriculture & horticulture, was the Fred Astaire of his day, a talented bard & a cook only to be rivalled by our own Dove.

Oh, and without him we would definitely lost to Hitler.

I've not seen 'ma' before, not posted on any of my questions, the experience / knowledge is always helpful  I think you are quite experienced yourself too David (and patient LOL!) so take some credit 


Most kind of you, OL.....but a mere novice in comparison.

This one for Frank - because I can't send a pm - glad to see you back!  All the best.  Ma.


....and always great to see your visits too, Ma.

'Frank & Ma'....a wealth of experience between them folks!

Damping off! **Please** help!

I started this thread a couple of weeks ago with just this problem in mind.

The problem with these plastic constructions is that they provide wild fluctuations between night & daytime temperatures and this is responsible for much of the problem.

Good luck mike. I had skin cancer, but it was caught in time (too much sun whilst gardening). Never give up no matter how bad things seem, and always look to the future, re plan your garden and give yourself purpose, the human body can heal itself. Even in the bad moments be determined you can beat cancer.


Snap! Dave, me too (same reason).....I've had  five eye operations (or surrounding area to be precise) over the past 18 months., but pleased to say that everything is well now and no more appointments for another year.

Hi David, yes all well just been very busy, a couple of friends asked about me so I thought it best to put minds at rest, not pushing up daisies.

This forum is addictive I only intended to dip in and out.


 Really great to see you, Frank.....have you down as Bruce Forsyth's replacement on Strictly.

'Forum addictive'....never a truer word!

Well, Frank, how nice is it to see you around on the forum again......hope you are keeping well.

The dog rose has pleasant childhood memories for me.



Growing Sweet Peas

No wonder I have patience, no wonder do I want you people to succeed.....I could get drunk on your enthusiasm.

Believe me, I do appreciate how confusing it must be when some plants need TLC (frost tender etc) and others (like sweet peas) can be ruined by it.
