Daffodils advice

Posted: 05/02/2016 at 09:29

Hello SuperShrimper

As Nut says, that's what they do in the first year - then the bulbs will multiply and you'll get more flowers next spring, especially if you take the seedheads off when the flowers die off.

Nut, you won't have to bother about the circumflex any more - I'm going to miss it tho

THESE NEW PART TWO THREADS NORA

Posted: 05/02/2016 at 09:09

That's a very good point David - if someone wants to keep an eye on a thread they started, when it gets to around 1000 posts they can start a new one and ask Nora to lock the old one

As I said, for me any Chat-type threads I start are something that I feel I offer to the members to do what they like with (within the rules of the board of course ).  If a thread dies out after a few posts that's fine, and if it runs and runs like the proverbial Mousetrap, that's because of the forum members, not because of me

However, with David K's Sweet Pea threads it's important that they can be identified as his, because we're searching specifically  for his advice

THESE NEW PART TWO THREADS NORA

Posted: 05/02/2016 at 07:16

They show Nora's name 'cos she's the one that physically 'did it' - she didn't type her name in, that's just what the software recorded.  She has done her best to attribute the person who started the thread.  It's possible that's all that can be done without totally re-writing the software.

Just for the record, I don't feel proprietorial about threads I've started ... it may just be me, but once a thread has reached one thousand posts I feel it's taken on a life of its own ... don't really give a stuff whether it has my name on it or not   .... there's not a prize ............................ is there? 

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning peeps

So glad that Mighty Atom is being Mighty Dove. I have a group of Magnet which is outshining the others at the moment.

Rotten feeling Pdoc ...hope you are a bit better today

No gardening this weekend, too busy with Chicklets (), but next weekend will be the start of my 2016 season.....must buy some seed compost, and the great tidy up will begin.  Will use the "how to eat an elephant" method
