Spot the boat?


Same boat.

 That's what my mere 50x zoom will do.

Hi, Sue

Don't get hung-up about watering, as I've said previously, just try to avoid the roots standing in water, especially during cold weather.

As temperatures are at present over the UK, keep your pollytunnel ventilated day & night....in fact it would be best kept ventilated at all temperatures above say -10c. Remember they are very tough little characters.....I've never lost any to frost.

Re training, as you will know there are two basic methods, 'cordon' & 'decorative'.....cordon I use for exhibition quality flowers and decorative for cut flowers. The cordon method is very labour intensive, but the results are stunning.

Hanging basket compost will be multipurpose, as (unlike autumn sown seed) they, being sown in spring will benefit  from the additional nutrients.

Finally, I would say if your spring sown SPs have been disappointing this year, it was probably more down to the weather, than any mistake on your part.

You're  welcome, Hostafan........I was impressed by the enormous 63x zoom lens, that's one very impressive lens.

Having spent time today looking at them on your behalf, I have to say that Sony are world leaders in camera technology and this is fantastic value and would meet the needs of most snappers: www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/2379045.htm#pdpFullProductInformation

DD, I think the Halloween theme spoils the comp every year and I think the wrong one went home again this week.

I did wonder if peeps considered Jay's or Jill's jive to be the best ever on SCD.

For me it deffo has to be Jay's: www.youtube.com/watch?v=zfzJbqX8R_s

Yes, that is a nice camera, Hostafan, but it has interchangeable lenses and if you wanted to take really sharp close-ups of flowers/insects etc, you will still need to buy a macro lens....and they are expensive.

Please take a look at the Fujifilm FinePix S9800. It is a fixed lens bridge camera, has an fantastic 50x zoom lens that will also take those macro shots.

If you care to PM me, I may have something that may interest you.
