HELLO FORKERS! September Edition

That might be because of the beans Clari 

Does anybody know what this is please?

One of the buttercups, can't tell which one - Meadow buttercup and Creeping buttercup are two of the most likely possibilities ... 


http://www.woodlands.co.uk/blog/woodland-flowers/yellow-flowers/buttercups-creeping-bulbous-and-meadow/ 


Buttercups have always grown in British pastures, they do have a degree of toxicity and if eaten to excess can cause mild colic and diarrhoea in horses.  However in my experience if there is plenty of grass available few horses will eat enough buttercup to do them any harm as it tastes acrid.


If the pasture is well managed that should keep the buttercup under control and prevent it from causing a problem.  Weeds can cause a problem where wet ground has previously been poached by horses/cattle destroying the grass, the buttercups and other weeds then take hold in the bare soil.  


Hope that helps 

ID for interesting flowering plant, please.

I think the alcohol in the Pimms is far more likely to have a deleterious effect on our livers than the borage flowers used to prettify it

Fungal Growth

Ogster - you're a familiar name and you've posted several times on the forum - I think you've always had a reply and have been treated pleasantly - so, if no one has replied to your latest post perhaps you should reflect on the possible reasons which may be


1.  that no one who has seen your query has any helpful information for you, or


2. that for some reason your post has slipped down the page and escaped the notice of people who might have otherwise replied


I don't think that either reason justifies sarcasm or rudeness from you.  


All that's needed is a pleasant enquiry as to whether anyone can help and that will bump your post to the top of the first page.  


In my case the second reason applies - although I've been on the board several times in the past 48 hours I've simply not seen your query.  However having seen your photos I would not worry - most fungal growths in the garden are simply part of the normal course of events - the fungi are breaking down organic matter in the soil and making it available to your plants.  If you don't like the look of it just gently hoe the surface of the soil to break it up.  


And remember, we're nice people, we like to help so if we don't it might be that there's been a blip .... or it might mean that we don't like uncalled for sarcasm.
