Bike stolen from back garden. Need gate lock solutions.

Ask the police about smart water and tagging. They do it for free.

Sorry it happened to you. 


We are now head line advertisement for the police after we lost ours (stolen) on neighbourhood watch and face book!!! i don't even have a account but the police think it is a result worth shouting about and we got the bikes back. Unfortunately my neighbours had theirs stolen weeks before and did not have the (free) tag .


The cops know who the thieves are its just proving its not theirs. If they can be bothered any more after the news reports i saw this week that says investigate your own as they have no money to do so any more!!!!!!!! ( it was the Mail) Sorry.

cuttings question

Yes, nut. Agreed 

leave inside with good light and forget about them for 2 weeks. let them dry out a bit so the roots search for moisture. Then put your fingers/ hand over the top of the pot, plant between your fingers and turn upside down and raise the pot and look for the root system. You will know straight away if it is pot bound as the roots will curl around the pot, inside. It is then time for a bigger pot. but not a huge one. only a inch or 2 all round and let it grow on. 

You have to be cruel and let it search for new ground, to establish new roots. Only water if the leaf stops growing or wilts. Its harsh but they need it.



I rely on you nut, your are more the expert but i think together with others on this site we will be ok.

What happened to hosta fan?

Do you mean mycelium pansyface? The the largest organism in the world? It covers 95% of the world and we would not live without it. Just a thought on who runs this planet.
