Help needed!

...........The quote button is stupid!  Totally and utterly illogical and it's unlike anything I've ever seen on any forum.   You have to press quote and then immediately press "unquote" .... yes really!    No kidding! 

Then and only then do you go to your reply box and click on the " icon.


But once you know how to do it, it's pretty straightforward and it works, and for a while it didn't.  When I first signed up many moons ago, you only needed to click on 'quote' then go to the " icon, but after a problem on the site was corrected  you then needed to hit 'quote' then' unquote'.   I've assumed that as major work on the website was planned, then the fix that necessitated the quote unquote work-around was temporary.


.... But once you've quoted once you can't split the quote to respond to each point

I can  - it's slightly fiddly, but can be done.  

However it would be great if it was possible to select a portion of the post to quote rather than quote the whole post then delete the bits not needed.

What is this please?

A few queries on overwintering

They only need to be covered with a plastic bag or similar until they've rooted - then remove the cover - let them grow a bit and then pot on.

Pole for washing line

I've got two lines full of washing flapping away in the breeze

Un-named buddleja seedlings/cuttings may cost little - decent named varieties are around £10.00 and upwards - maybe the reason you don't like them very much is because the ones you've bought previously are of poor quality.

Or maybe you won the lottery or are a city banker ..................

Flamingo tree leaf problems

Is it thirsty?  It's a willow and they need lots and lots of water.

Is the pot big enough?

Or if you don't like my retractable ones, there's this which has a metal socket in the ground to slot your pole into - but I bet it eventually welds itself into the socket and becomes immovable.

... If you really want something small, why not just grow suitable perennials?  Less expensive than buying shrubs and binning them.   Seems a waste to me.

My thoughts exactly.  Buddleja aren't bedding plants.
