How big is not too big Dove 

It's been planted a year, I cut it hard back in March and at the moment it's about 4ft tall and the same across and flowering well.   It's label says that ultimately it could reach 6ft x 6ft which will be great as it's in the front garden in front of the sitting room window - we'll be able to see it and all the butterflies it attracts from the comfort of the sofa

It's not been too bad here, once the summer got going - I've not mowed the lawns for weeks and weeks - they've stopped growing and have been quite brown, but are greening up a bit since  we had some rain last week - certainly my tomatoes appear to have enjoyed the recent warmth and are looking good (famous last words )

Help needed!

I'm a big fan of the Forum as it is - doesn't need major changes in my view.

However, it would be great to see the major glitches fixed - particularly when posting on a phone.

And the quote and search facilities could be easier and more reliable to use.  

But don't change the "look and feel" looks and feels just right

Absolutely agree

I did the same and that was my conclusion too Hosta - lovely ladies, glad they've got a nice place to sit (couldn't really call it a garden) fascinating story apparently - are we watching AT morph into Cilla - will he start doing Surprise Surprise!

He'd be perfect ... he loves making people cry .............. and then he joins in ....

It was nice when we had Christmas smilies at Christmas - last year the tech team were too busy to organise that for us   If that were made easier it would be great - a silly little thing I know, but it all adds to the good feeling on here

Good morning all

Hosta and Hub ((lotsofhugs))  miserable monsters!!!  No wonder they need someone to do their garden for them, they're obviously not gardeners, gardeners wouldn't treat someone like that   Tell Hub to ignore them - lots of females on here, we'll all be his sister for him and you can both come to all our parties - we're nice    but we will all expect fraternal help with our gardens - is that a deal???  

What apple are these?

Posted: 05/08/2015 at 06:29

But neither cider apples or crab apples will do you any harm if you taste one - they're just very sour and hard.  Neither will poison you.

I'd wait until the apples are ripe (when the stems snap if you lift and twist the apple slightly) and then taste them, and try cooking with them too.  Lots of apples can be used for both purposes - I find Granny Smiths and Cox's Orange Pippin both make good pie fillings as well as being 'eaters'. 

Is this tomato blight?
