What's the weather like in your area?

Rain, not too windy at the mo. Large branch came down in the night from conifer next door. Narrowly missed chicken run.

David K, on the other thread you said you had sussed it and I said it worked for me too - which it did. I went into Forum settings and set the default email notification to 'off' since when I have had no emails. I understand that some people are having problems with certain features depending on which browser they are using. I'm using IE 9.

I'd definitely recommend Jasmine for the fabulous scent. Mine's in a raised bed scrambling over a pergoly-thing. Quite vigorous once it's happy so needs smoe chopping back.

I think chicken piccies are called for Spotlandman.

Hope that solves your mire situation, sotongeoff. My plastic tent-top works really well and is fixed down with a guy rope arrangement which has held out in some pretty hefty winds. Even on rainy days the girls make dust baths in the run!

Is this early for red mites or about usual? I have a plastic doodlehouse and a wooden run, presumably mites will lurk in the wood for preference.

Compost, they reckon !!!

Thanks for the suggestion, sotongeoff. Will make a point of going next time I have an expedition to Salisbury.

Happy Bear :- D

My mum used to grow them on London clay. They seemed very happy.

Hi welshkatt (you're not a manx, are you? I know two welsh manx cats!)

Have you tried using the search facility on this site? If not, give it a go. Click on the Plants tab, put in your requirements and find pics and info about plants that will suit your situation.

Of course, it's always nice to 'talk' to people as well.
