You'll see that our profile does not have a link, and never did....

 

Pants on fire Matt?    Pansyface saw the link in your profile and so did I.  So you've deleted it now

Deleting things is not up to us forum members, neither is calling you on your phone - it's up to the Moderators who are employed by the Gardenersworld.com - all we do is let them know when someone cheeky is blagging some free advertising. 

What they do is up to them.

No Matt - I'm a member of the forum - a member of the public - I'm showing other posters the sort I have in my garden which I'm very pleased with.  That's not advertising - that's a personal recommendation which is encouraged on this forum.

You've said 'check out our website' and your Public Profile gives a link - that's plugging your business.  I don't have a business.  I don't sell anything.  I'm a retired person.

@ Matt from Greenhouse Stores - no unpaid for advertising/plugging of commercial business is allowed on this forum. 

If you want to advertise your business contact the team here http://www.gardenersworld.com/contact-us/

Afraid this and your other posts have been flagged up to the Mods.

Pumpkin flowers

Posted: 01/09/2015 at 14:30

Yes, don't leave all the flowers on - remove them to let the plant concentrate on the fruit you've got as it's now getting late in the season.

You can use the flowers for cooking, either like this http://vegetarian-recipes.wonderhowto.com/how-to/cook-fresh-pumpkin-flowers-313487/ or stuffed like courgette flowers.

 

Island beds - are they a bit twee or retro?

Whereabouts are you Tetley ........ approximately?  I'm from down that way and so is Wonky

HELLO FORKERS!

Hello folks - car delivered to garage, I went with it as I'd not used that garage before, and then I got a cab back.  Now I have to wait until they've had a look ...

Families eh?   Except for me and Wonky of course ((hugs)), and of course son and a few others

Indoor Olive Tree

I think you're right Jo.  I'd have it outside in all but the hardest weather - as long as the potting medium is gritty and free-draining, and it's not watered in the winter they're fine outside in a sheltered spot.

They can cope with cold as long as their roots are not wet.

I would bubble-wrap the pot for the winter.
