Nothng like a bit of ozone blowing through my underpants.....might even hang them on the line 

Thought you'd bought some new ones only recently Verdun - as you've not had them a fortnight yet I'm surprised you're even thinking about washing them

I've found that with some varieties the female silks emerge quite a while after the male, but somehow the pollination manages to coincide

Help needed!

I have only just discovered that you can quote from more than one persons post at the same time.

that is quite handy.

^ Well done... I tried to do that and it just repeated the first persons quote twice

When you paste the second quote it repeats the first as well as pasting the second, but it's simple to select and delete it.

Help needed!

...........The quote button is stupid!  Totally and utterly illogical and it's unlike anything I've ever seen on any forum.   You have to press quote and then immediately press "unquote" .... yes really!    No kidding! 

Then and only then do you go to your reply box and click on the " icon.


But once you know how to do it, it's pretty straightforward and it works, and for a while it didn't.  When I first signed up many moons ago, you only needed to click on 'quote' then go to the " icon, but after a problem on the site was corrected  you then needed to hit 'quote' then' unquote'.   I've assumed that as major work on the website was planned, then the fix that necessitated the quote unquote work-around was temporary.


.... But once you've quoted once you can't split the quote to respond to each point

I can  - it's slightly fiddly, but can be done.  

However it would be great if it was possible to select a portion of the post to quote rather than quote the whole post then delete the bits not needed.

What is this please?

A few queries on overwintering

They only need to be covered with a plastic bag or similar until they've rooted - then remove the cover - let them grow a bit and then pot on.

Shall we pool our piggy banks?

Or shall we stick with our seed swap?
