I'm able to resize any photos over 5mb Nora (via the Windows editor) - but it simply won't upload anything over 2mb just now which is the real problem!

Hopefully the tech team can reinstate the external upload facility - that would be a great help.

 Fairy - Unless you already know, I could discuss changing your camera settings to take smaller pics, via a PM or on the camera thread.

Stabilising a bare soil slope

I would suggest covering the area with chicken wire (preferably) plastic covered, then sow coarse grass seed.

Most probably nothing at all to worry about. Many types of fungi help break down woody tissues and other types survive by consuming bacteria in the mulch. Either way, fungus is beneficial so no mulch fungus treatment is necessary in most cases.

Unfortunately there is one but, that being the possibility that it is honey fungus.

 Hi David...to enlarge the image, right click on the image and select - Open image in new tab...the image will then open in a new window at the larger size.

More fabulous shots, Fairy.....although  I wish we could still enlarge them, to see the fine detail.

Sounds ideal, Wonky.....full sun but will tolerate partial shade is the ideal.

Sweet Pea Know How

Posted: 15/05/2016 at 10:08

As a timely reminder, I would just say that sweet peas are not intended to serve as a showpiece in any garden, their sole purpose is to provide beautiful, scented, cut flowers for the house.....in fact, their straggly growth makes them quite ugly for a flower-bed display (IMHO).

I say this because many people try to use them for display reasons and this results in the flowers producing seed pods and coming to a premature end...so cut frequently and don't allow them to set seed.

I grow mine in the veg patch and am always happy to see the rows devoid of open flowers.
