How to space climbers

But as we get older our memories get worse - so now I forget all the things I should remember....

pd - I think the mods have done their job. I was on the point of leaving too - on more than one occasion - because every time I looked in, there he was with his horrible goading and direct abuse to individuals. It made me so angry and upset. I felt helpless but didn't want to be drawn into his 'game' even though I wanted to tell him exactly what I thought of him - and, trust me,  the air would have been more than blue if I'd got started. I just  reported him every time he personally attacked anyone - including last night after his comment to Busy Lizzie. I think that's the way to do it - report anyone who is abusive and then the mods have to take notice.

We all love you here. Don't let people like him win. They're cowards of the worst kind because they hide behind a keyboard.

David - he's been 'removed' so now we can get on with enjoying  this forum with all our friends here - the way it should be enjoyed 

We just have to be vigilant for anyone suspicious as it's very easy to just turn up under another name.

Need some new fencing chick?

Good luck pariate! 

As you say - we all make mistakes and we're always learning - I'm sure even really knowledgeable people like Bob will agree with that.

Sometimes we plant things thinking they're going to look tremendous (and they should)  but one plant just doesn't deliver in some way so we have to change it. I doubt if any gardener hasn't done that at some point!

Plant sometimes commonly called Bumble Bee plant/Bee plant/shrub?

Pariate - the good thing is that now you know what plant you liked and can ask for it at a GC if you don't see it yourself. I've never heard of it being called Bumble Bee plant and was quite surprised at that as I've never seen it as a plant which was particularly loved by bees, that's why I suggested Cotoneaster! I have a white Escallonia as I don't like the pink ones. I like the botanical names simply because it often gives you the description of the plant and makes it easier if you're looking for something specific online or at a nursery.

I pronounce Heuchera the same way Hostafan. My Dad was a Londoner, but after living up here for a very long time he was able to say 'loch' without any problem!

Larger bodies and thicker body hair Dove? 

In that case - pass the cake and hold the razors - I'm in!  

Verdun - I can feel a joke coming on ....strap yourselves in!

Morning all. Those instruction sheets are fun aren't they Bob! 

Well it looks like we're all storming on and not letting t***s spoil this forum. There's enough of those kinds of people in real life without having them here. I have to go and deal with one of those clowns soon - the bank....

I may have to buy some plants to keep me sane 

My dwarf Iris are looking nice - one pot is a little behind the other two as it was done a couple of weeks later. Must get a pic if the rain stays away long enough.

You might be right there David. The Last Leg on sky+ for me then bed   

Night fidge

I've reported this to the mods - in particular the comment made to Busy-Lizzie.  Hopefully they will look at this on Monday and take action. Verdun's right - this person has some serious issues and doesn't belong here on a gardening forum.

Like nut, I'm pressing ignore now too and suggest we all do the same.

Whoever this 'person' is BL - they clearly need help of some kind.

Or better medication. 

Quite sad really, isn't it?
