Mystery animal?

Click the green tree icon in the reply box below. about here             ^^^ (below this obviously)

A small window will appear with two tabs showing one for (your computer) and the other for (an external site).

Hit your comp tab and then pick select. This will take you to your computer files (new small window) where you can pick your file and press ok/open. The window will close and you will see your file name appear in the box next to the select button.

Now hit the upload button. This will probably cause a error window to open (Radupload ajax callback error with lots of text). Press return or the X (top right) 

Then wait till it appears in the small window. This can take a while so be patient.

When it appears press the save button and wait again. It should appear in the reply box but again this might take time.

Some files can be too big and will need to be cropped before they will load.

Hope this helps.

Are there any other choices?  maybe a granular version he won't find as appealing?

Manure, nettles and comfrey with a bit of carbon (brown card, paper/straw) sounds like a ideal compost mix to me.

nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) or NPK for short. 

I have associated the phrase "PiNK from the bottom up" to Dove but I remember her saying that it wasn't her. It is still a great one to remember.

From the root up, it goes:- (P) root growth. (N) Leaf growth and (K) fruit and flower growth.

I'm  46 and have just bought my first plant for someone else that was not for commercial gain , My other half.

Its a Dieffenbachia and if taken, internally, it could kill.

There was a BOGOF offer so I could not refuse!

The phrase Commercial gain always got me. Does that mean I can sell the plants after and how soon would you like them after the death? To be honest before death would help me out a lot.

Patronising Verdun ??? No No No!

I would swap you a ladder for a mountain down there any day Verdun.

Unfortunately you have the winning edge as you have the climate, down there.

Then again trying to sell crampons and climbing ropes in Cornwall never worked out for me. It never even sound right!!!!

Never been so stressed Verdun. Sorry stressed is not the word.

 Its excitement about doing something new, I have gotten fogged about doing thing that scare me. My belly has gotten bigger and I find myself doing less and less. The excitement in life has gone. The testosterone is getting lower and I miss the risk when climbing a mountain. 

Is this how it goes???????????

Also wangled myself into the Metformin trials with a exception to use Turmeric as well. 

See you at your funeral??? (only kidding)

Think it might have been Victoria Sponge who gave me the seed 2 years ago? Still not 100% on that. If Ive got it wrong on that one as I've had many seeds for my park and pond project, that should flower this year. The seed bombs are down and growing.

That can only be a good thing. 

I just wish the pond could be more productive.
