Good morning all   G'day Pat

Good to seeyou back Edd  - glad you enjoyed your adventure   You asked about our Canadian orchid-loving friend - sadly Bill posted a message a while back saying that he was very poorly and had been told his time was nearly up, but that he didn't want to go without saying goodbye   We miss him.

On a brighter note Daniel and the team are working on an all singing all dancing revamp of the website which will mean that the forum should be more user-friendly - last I heard we should see signs in the spring (there's lots to do ) and Nora in the GW office has been appointed to look after us - she's contacted some of us and will be posting more in a while.

OH and I travelled to the West Country and met up with Hosta and Lyn and their lovely OHs, were fed and watered wonderfully, strolled around Hosta's estate and returned East Anglia laden with plants

As you say, lots of new members including Wonky Womble who is my (grown up and married) daughter and has inherited the gardening bug. 

Time for more coffee .......

How to get lawn stripes? (not what you think)

Hi Sam

Choose a variety which is known to be resistant to honey fungus and you should be ok.

It's an association/co-operative of 11 different family farms who co-operate for economy of scale. 

This is one of the farms

Not like Berrow Farm

Wer've got similar all over the places where we spread home-made compost earlier in the year - just some sort of fungi breaking down the organic matter  - it'll disappear when the weather gets cooler.

No idea what sort but I'd be interested if anyone else knows?
