Hello Forkers - April edition

The problem with ordinary Melatonin is that it only helps you go to sleep, it doesn't stop you waking in the night.  However, there is a 'slow release' type available ... that might help Hosta.  And you really have to take it in the right way ... 

Right, tidying up, wrapping presents and packing to be done ................

It's up to you of course, but I really wouldn't take anything off the ends of the branches ... they'll loose that elegant line and just go bushy

Mike I am not and never have been a Mod on this or any other forum. That ridiculous rumour has been denied on here by Daniel.

If you're the person who started spreading that rumour via PM then I think you should apologise - it has caused a lot of trouble and unpleasantness and some people have left the board as a result.

I have been a member of this forum since 2011 and I use my brain and I understand how things work. Nothing more than that. 

I knew your post had been removed because it was there when I first read the board in the morning and it wasn't there later. Another poster had already remarked that it was rude and insulting so I expect that person had also reported it. 

You had also posted a link to your granddaughter's Instagram site and identified her as a schoolgirl - a very irresponsible and dangerous thing to do on a public forum. 

And yet you were calling other posters ignorant - you know a little bit about Instagram and other aspects of the internet. Bear in mind that a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing.

Good morning all  There's some puddles on the roadway at the bottom of the rise. Not big ones, but puddles nevertheless. If I'd known that was coming I'd have spread some lawn stuff on the front lawn. Now I'll leave it until we get back from Lincs.

Tucked up in bed now and falling asleep 

I knew all that watering I did this morning would do some good ... We've had steady rain for an hour and a half now   You can thank me tomorrow ...

That's what we had Hosta - very nice indeed.  

Who's poo?

That could be hedgehog poo too, it's just that the hedgehog has bean eating something that has resulted in a softer poo.  

We once spilled a pile of sunflower hearts and the hogs hoovered them up resulting in  soft grey poos in the garden that night.
