Right, sorry - Daniel Haynes is the Editor of the online Gardeners World and as such in charge of this Forum and the rest of the website.  

A PM is a Private Message - it's a way of messaging an individual member of the forum privately without it being visible to everyone else.  

What you do is you go to the big where your name is on the top right hand corner of this page and you'll get a dropdown menu with some options - click on My Messages and you'll get a page where you can send a message to any member of the forum including Daniel.

If it doesn't work for you (and sometimes there are blips, or I may not have explained it clearly) then let us know and we'll try to help.

Cake ............... more cake............. I said the men would be here if there was cake...... I was just munching on Doritos and dips, don't think I've got room for cake 

iGrow - you're not too far from us either, and we visit south Lincs quite often to see the inlaws, some good gardens around

Looks like a bit of a copywriting/cut & pasting error - mistakes do happen, they shouldn't but we're all human - you could contact Daniel via a PM and just let him know .... ?

Looks like someone planted some choice plants in that garden of yours Jack 

And when that Love in a Mist flowers, leave the seedheads on - they puff up like some strange sort of puffer fish and look so odd, and the goldfinches will come and balance on them and eat the seeds - you'll wonder how those frail plants can support the weight of the birds - my daughter lives right in the centre of a busy town, and she has flocks of goldfinches on her Love in a Mist.

Maybe too, as it was overshadowed by other plants,  it didn't get enough direct sunlight for the leaves to produce all those sugars that make the glorious colours when the cold snap arrives - poor thing didn't stand a chance this last year - now it's going to get sunlight and space, and hopefully some Fish Blood and Bone ticked into the soil around it - it's going to be so happeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

You wait until next autumn

Okay, sorry that I misinterpreted!  To be honest, because I know so little about gardening, I tend to think that all my questions must make experienced gardeners despair somewhat, but was really worried by the thought that I was guilty of a true gardening faux pas! 

Thank you all for your help on the plant, I'm so, so glad I've found it again, and thank you also for your last few posts reassuring me about my last post. 

 Trots off to post another thread about planting climbers on supports, hoping that this won't be another obviously newbie question*

We like it when we get a few easier questions pariate - it means we stand a good chance of knowing the answers
