Daniel we have PM problems on the forum

Posted: 27/10/2013 at 20:40

Not sure how much of the forum Daniel reads  KEF. When there was that major meltdown recently he was on it quite a bit to update everyone but from what I can see he's only aware of issues if someone lets him know. Not totally sure about it all though. I PMd him that time as the whole thing was going down and I think I was just lucky because I couldn't get anything to work shortly after that either!

I just thought I'd do  it this time in case it all went awol again!

No kettle would be disastrous and I don't have a gas hob either to do a pan of water 

and what would be the chances of finding two dry sticks to rub together... 

Any mint ones archie? They're my favourite.

I'm impressed Bob! It will be a bonny sight to cheer you up on dull days!  

Not got all of mine in yet but the weather has held me back a little. Getting the beds built for them was the priority but got lots into pots. Hope to get some more in the beds soon.

Aren't some companies hopeless though? Quick enough to take your hard earned cash though

Don't think it's hardy here GM- mostly grown as an annual but I'm not 100% sure

Think a lot of the supermarkets do that sort of thing don't they? 

Got any tarts tonight archie?

Louby Lou - I believe they have catkins in early spring  like all willows, so they lose their leaves for the winter- as far as I know!

Gary- I think they can be pruned at this time of year as it  encourages the new coloured growth next year, but I'm sure someone more knowledgeable than me will advise if that's correct  or not

Just had a look nut and it's there! Wasn't showing  as having a reply but when I searched it was in there. Everything jumbled up though

Bob - did you eventually get all your bulbs?

Ballerina's one I thought of getting Bob. I will have quite a bit of dark purple and white in the bed they'd go in and wanted a few orange ones to have a bit of contrast and pzazz! 

If it's hot pink I might consider it chick!

Bird of Paradise not flowering

When viewing a house a few years ago the vendor had one in his conservatory which he was very proud of as he'd grown it from seed. If I remember correctly it wouldn't have had a lot of sun as it faced north west and was shaded from midday sun because of the owner's house and neighbouring one as well. He only had one so it sounds like the GC advice was a bit of a con. Perhaps the conditions are a bit too hot for it? Sometimes overwatering can be an issue with many plants - could that be a possibility?  Gilly's suggestion of tomato food sounds a sensible one as it promotes flowers.
