Mmmm. It's better than before but still got extra gobbldegook that I didn't order. That <pclass="members ... .etc wasn't anything to do with me and won't go away even if I re-edit the post.

So that's two things now!

Keep Daniel and co on their toes, eh (-;

Having another try at the weird stuff in Public Profile. I've tried to bold/italic the oddities.

Most of the kep profile settings can be found in the My Settings. This is where you can edit your personal information, your location Neighbourhood, your email subscriptions and lots more. Take some time to make sure this is up to date and complete so we can provide you with the best service.

In My Events, you can find the list of things you have saved from the Neighbourhood section. You can also invite your friends to events.

 In My Messages, you can access the private messaging system for MadeForMums members. You can also invite your friends to events.

In My Posts, and My Reviews you can see your publishing history around the Forums, Neighbourhood Discussions and user Reviews.

<p class="members-public-profile-text">Hoping that editing it in here and not in OneNote will make it work now.

Just pooching about and went into 'Public Profile' I think the text needs editing a bit!

Tried to copy and paste bits but gots loads of gobbldegook and now I'm off out so can't sort it. Will try later.

Searching the site?

Also, Dipadee, try the Search box at the very top of the page which Daniel explains on the fifth message above this one.

best way to clear grass and brambles under trees?

Posted: 26/04/2012 at 11:52

It does help, though, to remove much of the brambles' top growth before attacking the roots. Even the little bits fight back )-:   I am working through my big bramble patch just now and, though a reluctant poisoner, am applying glyphosate to any new growth.

Just did a search for my rhubarb query. Very easy to use. Thanks for the info. on how to do that, Daniel. As Green Magpie said, it will save the same questions being repeated (as long as people think to use it.) Perhaps your post above could be in the Help section.

Green Magpie (like the name, btw) I didn't spot the search box at the top of the page, so it's not just you!

I have two rhubarb problems.

One is a variety - forget what now but only just appearing this last few weeks - that produces lovely thick dark red stems which only ever grow to about 10cm long (if I'm lucky). I had to move it last year so took care to plant it at the correct depth.

The other is an earlier variety that seems to have two growing points. One is producing decent thickness and length stems, the other is producing quite spindly ones.  This plant was an offcut of the thriving, nay rampant, rhubarb that grew in our school garden and it has been in place 5 or 6 years. 

They are both in a fairly sunny spot in soil that is slightly alkaline.

Sorry to ramble on. Grateful to those who read!

If he/she meant too large, wrong soil type, wrong aspect it would have been helpful to say so, then you could make an informed decision. If it's a matter of taste then you go for it f_g!
