Forum up the creek

You're there Verd.

I had similar problems yesterday - from about lunchtime posts weren't showing etc. I started a thread to let everyone know about the bee programme last night as the forum was all over the place but trying to reply to other's posts was becoming impossible. Don't know yet if things are better  but perhaps if a good number of us could PM Daniel and request a bit of help with it the problems might get properly addressed.  I feel lots of new members will get put off by it and stop posting altogether. I think I would if I'd just joined. 

just wondered

I started one nut - about the bee prog-  and that worked. The whole thing's gone t**s up tonight!

It sounds like you have a big project on your hands Ross so I wish you luck with it. It can be daunting when there's so much to do - it's sometimes hard to know where to start! The best way to deal with big tasks is to do a bit at a time and take pix as you go along so that you can see the progress. It really helps with motivation! There are lots of people on here who can help you along the way whenever you need it too. 


Bee programme tonight

For anyone who might be interested there's a programme on tonight after G'sWorld discussing the problems with bees. Since the forum doesn't seem to be working very well just now I though I'd try doing this new thread in case it worked!

Just a quick message to everyone -there's a programme about the bee problem on after G'sWorld tonight which should be interesting. Since this doesn't seem to working well tonight I'm going to try doing a new thread in case people don't know it's on. May not work but worth a shot.

Peter those look terrific...and so beautifully neat. There are some very tidy male gardeners on this forum!!

I didn't mean that in the modern sense that 'tidy' means....

Although maybe that's the case too!

Just a useful tip when laying a turf lawn - It's 'green side up' !

That was strange- when I was writing that - none of the other posts this evening were there!

GG- it's 'ranty pants' you could have done with today  by the sound of it.  You're far too good...

Have you got a suitable spot earmarked for your nice new  plants? 

Everyone's working too hard  - or playing too hard (PP -hope you're ok) I'm not taking any chances ...was going to cut grass but will leave it I think and put my feet up. The shopping 'mall' to get school stuff was way more effort than I can deal with!

Is there something wrong with the site again? Some very odd things happening to posts. 

Trying this to see if it appears!

Ideas wanted for a shade loving climber that flower

Clematis will be great Stacey, the only disadvantage is that most are not evergreen, but you could always have ivy for year round cover and plant clematis nearby for spring/summer colour which can use the ivy as a support. As obelixx says, the montanas are a bit rampant so the 'usual' types would be a better bet for your situation. Loads to choose from!
