You'll find bug reporting in forum topics/ site feedback.

Did you find my settings/ forum settings/ members I am ignoring? That's how Zommer sorted it out. Don't know how to get in touch with moderator, but posting on the reporting bugs thread usually gets a response. I don't think signing out, then back in would work, as your personal settings haven't been changed.

It may be that you've somehow set things to ignore yourself! As I remember,you go into your profile and look around for a blocked or ignored list. You may find yourself in there. I think this happens when that black Box comes up over a posters icon and you have the options to message or ignore. If you happen to hit ignore, it makes the box go away, but then you don't see any posts from that person. Which might be yourself!

Oh, and yes we can see your messages, obviously, or I wouldn't have replied!

'weeds' at Chelsea

I suppose all our cultivated garden plants were wild flowers or weeds at some point, then their beauty/ usefulness caught our ancestors' imagination. I remember nurturing what I thought was an unusual hardy geranium, which turned out to be a field buttercup! I have teasels and foxgloves in my garden which plonk themselves around and I just take out or relocate as I fancy. I'm lucky enough to live in Devon, and the campion and umbellifers flowering in the hedges right now are sublime. Wouldn't mind a bit of that in my garden, but generally feels like the lanes are an extension of it, so nature's saved me the trouble. I do find valerian a bit tiresome, but mainly because it sows itself in my Walls and can be destructive. I don't want to segregate my garden from nature.

OK!

I could do, but as I mix my veg and ornamentals in the borders, might be a bit awkward as they're at the front! Am thinking I might try those metal spirals - I grew some runners up them last year.

slightly off topic but bean related - my so called dwarf French beans which have been outside for about 6 weeks look spookily like they're climbers. Tempted to nip out top and try and bonsai them. Does anyone have any thoughts?

Left the roots in after clearing last year's crop, they've survived the winter and putting up new growth.
