Save our bees

A wise 12-year-old once said to me, 'If you don't say anything, they'll think you don't mind.'

Had never heard of Avaaz before, I have now.

Winter jasmine I find very easy to manage. And a welcome splash of colour in quiet times. Chop off or pull up bits you don't want. It arches over and can root where it touches. Not sure if your soil would be too good for it, mine is growing - has been for over 20 years - in a skimpy bit of soil right against the house wall facing approx South ~East. Perhaps in decent soil it would have taken over the bungalow by now!

Tootles & SkyeSteve, have you come across Freecycle / Freegle? They are forums for giving away or asking for 'stuff' that others don't want. This time of year when people are doing DIY projects, you may be lucky and find window frames. 

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.
