I did the same and that was my conclusion too Hosta - lovely ladies, glad they've got a nice place to sit (couldn't really call it a garden) fascinating story apparently - are we watching AT morph into Cilla - will he start doing Surprise Surprise!

He'd be perfect ... he loves making people cry .............. and then he joins in ....

It was nice when we had Christmas smilies at Christmas - last year the tech team were too busy to organise that for us   If that were made easier it would be great - a silly little thing I know, but it all adds to the good feeling on here

Good morning all

Hosta and Hub ((lotsofhugs))  miserable monsters!!!  No wonder they need someone to do their garden for them, they're obviously not gardeners, gardeners wouldn't treat someone like that   Tell Hub to ignore them - lots of females on here, we'll all be his sister for him and you can both come to all our parties - we're nice    but we will all expect fraternal help with our gardens - is that a deal???  

What apple are these?

Posted: 05/08/2015 at 06:29

But neither cider apples or crab apples will do you any harm if you taste one - they're just very sour and hard.  Neither will poison you.

I'd wait until the apples are ripe (when the stems snap if you lift and twist the apple slightly) and then taste them, and try cooking with them too.  Lots of apples can be used for both purposes - I find Granny Smiths and Cox's Orange Pippin both make good pie fillings as well as being 'eaters'. 

Is this tomato blight?

I'm with Lyn - improve the compatibility of the site as that is definitely a weak point as is the search facility.

Please, please don't introduce a 'like' button!  Those are divisive at best on a friendly site like this.

I agree, they either become divisive or alternatively totally meaningless 'cos everyone goes around 'liking' everyone else's posts so they don't feel sad. 

Once upon a time there was a regular contributor (Daniel will remember him) who was competitive about how many Views and how many Replies different threads got, always bragging about the number his threads had.  We really don't want to go back there - it was horrid

We've got emoticons/smilies - if someone says something you like post one of those.   No need to count how many someone's got. 

What is this pond weed? Is it a friendly plant .. or not?

Nut, is it Willow Moss?

Buddleja for just a year.

Posted: 04/08/2015 at 18:23

Last year I planted Buddleja 'Miss Ruby' in front of our west-facing sitting room window.  It's an absolute beauty - covered in long-lasting magenta flower spikes and attracting lots of butterflies. It doesn't grow too big so is ideal for smaller gardens and doesn't set seed.

An absolute picture
