Here here Verdun - he was my inspiration too and I often re-read the books I have that he wrote on gardening.  Is Barnsdale open to the public?

Yes, it is open to the public, Forester....that's when I took that pic.

I would offer to post a slideshow of my visit, but as I've posted it before, I'm cautious not to bore peeps.

Whilst being relieved that Brumbull has finally been zapped, I think we should remain vigilant. It's all too simple to slip back again with a new identity...I've seen it many times in the past.

One thing they find difficult to change is their posting style i.e. composition, punctuation & grammar...after numerous bans, this let Grid Gardener down every time.

I reckon some of us  could have BB sussed after his first sentence.

A monument to the sainted Geoff Hamilton in his beloved Barnsdale garden.

Hi, Mags....*Growmore is a general balanced fertilizer and is intended to address all three nutriment requirements of the soil. It has a NPK rating of 7-7-7, translated means 7 equal parts of Nitrogen (leaf growth) phosphates (root growth) and potash (fruit & flowers) application is usually in soil preparation for a new planting/sowing.  

*Growmore (then known as National Growmore) was introduced by the government during WW2 as part of the nation's 'Dig for Victory' campaign.  

I do use it sometimes, but prefer it in the liquid form these days.

I am not sure what it is best for me to to do at the moment.


Just sit tight & let it pass, punkdoc.... and thank you for defending me on the Camera thread.

David - he's been 'removed' so now we can get on with enjoying  this forum with all our friends here - the way it should be enjoyed 

We just have to be vigilant for anyone suspicious as it's very easy to just turn up under another name.

Need some new fencing chick? 


Good news for us,  FG....but I can't help thinking what a sad, disturbed individual exists behind the nonsense.

Thank you to those behind the scene who have restored normal service.

Simply block sotongeoff folks.  The weirdo is playing games.  If you fall out about him you will lose the forum

Yes, I sometimes wonder if the powers that be may decide that the forum section of this site isn't worth the hassle and may feel inclined to close it. I've always believed that the disruptive behaviour of a couple of loonies hastened the demise of the BBC gardening messageboard.

Seems Graham Norton is a good option at the mo...night all.
