Gardengirl is the name of a long-time poster, so I would have thought it unlikely to be an advert ... but when I click on her name I get an error ... is something up I wonder?

Which way does the fence face ... is the area in sunshine or shade? 

Are ALL bay leaves inedible?

Hi all,


Sorry to take so long to get back to you. I will suggest the pesticide theory. We are beginning to think it might be as simple as the growers worrying that the public might lack common sense and will try to eat the raw leaf and then sue the growers....


Thanks again for your help.

 Or perhaps they want to sell two plants ... a lollipop standard one for the ornamental garden and an untrained one for the herb garden to use in the kitchen

That's a delphinium ... not a UK native wild flower and and being perennials usually take two years to get to flowering size so unlikely to have come from seed sown this year ... but you never know, this has been an unusual season.

Hello Johnnycanoe ... good to see you 


Wildfires are horrifying ... my cousins in Tasmania were caught up in one a couple of years ago ... their homes were burnt to the ground but thankfully they managed to get to the paddocks and open the gates and their horses escaped and were rounded up later.  Now they're rebuilding but as they said, to be involved in that certainly makes you evaluate your priorities.  


I hope you and yours are keeping safe.

I've done it ... as someone who has studied design I can't see how it's going to help, but I hope it does 


Shouldn't have to mention it really, but a please and a thankyou usually helps elicit more replies.  


Attention to detail is important for designers

Click on the camera icon above right of the box where you type your post, and follow the instructions.  If nothing appears try reducing the size of the photo usually works. 


If you still can't get a photo to appear don't give up, let us know and we'll try to help

Good morning all 


Glad to hear all is going according to plan Chicky ((hugs)).


Hope you've all been able to hang onto your hats ... I've a feeling our bean canes may be deconstructed without us lifting a finger   but at least it's dry 


OH is getting his bike out and heading to the shops for a few necessities ... think the wind will blow him home quickly ... W'rose is due west of us.


I've spoken to Wonky who thanks you all for your kind wishes.  She slept well once she got to sleep and is, at the moment, still in her purple dressing gown.  She has had two coffees and has progressed to a mug of Darjeeling tea.  She's bored but being good and not doing anything.
