HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 07/07/2014 at 07:00

Good morning Stacey   Good to 'see' you - have you tried altering your Forum Settings - there's an option to always go to the last page of a thread - or is that what you're saying doesn't work?  There have been some forum blips - I think great changes are coming at some time in the future, but we have to be patient 

Your garden sounds great!

Some newer members have started a thread for swapping chilli seeds - you might want to check it out

Slight spelling blip there - Virginia creeper  - I wouldn't normally mention a spelling blip but Rich might not get what he's looking for if he used that spelling in Google!

Dig a bit of damp soil over to expose worms etc and then sit quietly in a corner where you can watch what's going on - you'll soon find out whether or not you've got fledgling robins being fed by harassed parents 

I used to spend a lot of time watching that sort of thing from my desk at work ....

Good morning all  a fresh and sunny morning here  

I have a day of family visiting planned, so the garden will have to cope without me for a little while - I think the blackbird family will make the most of my absence - they seem to think it's their garden anyway

Can you tell us more about where it's planted, how long it's been there, how you feed and water it etc. 

Fatsias like quite a shady spot - is yours getting too much sun?

I've not grown them, but from what I've read they'd do better outside now - they need insects to pollinate them.  Find them a sheltered sunny spot and they should be fine.

I think you'll get the effect you want much more quickly with a trellis panel and a climber as Fidget suggests.  

 1.5 metres from your house is too close to plant a tree.  Any trees take up a lot of space and need lots of .clipping to keep under control
