DiggerDelphie... There is expert advice on another thread...

Do I talk too much.?

I rarely post on here, but often read threads for advice. I completely agree with this...

Mike, don't ever think that. As previously said you are never unkind or rude. Always friendly and helpful. Don't worry how long your posts are, if people don't want to read them then that is thier choice.


Slow growing running bamboo

You might have better luck with willow. although it prefers damp, I've found it unfussy in my garden. last year I cut two-foot long stems from one plant and put them in a bucket of water. They all rooted so I planted them and this year I have a willow hedge. ideal for. Gold for children to run through, or they can be woven into little igloos, tunnels, arches etc. and they won't run and invade your neighbours. You just need to find someone with a willow you can chop at!

Osteospermum problem

Perfect timing! I have two osteo planted last year (ground cover on a slope) which are now spreading beautifully. We did take cuttings in the autumn which are now decent sized plants, but I hadn't thought about cutting back (even though that's actually my favourite job!).

Thanks for the info!

.... and here are Lizzie's plants safely arrived at the Somerset 'plant creche', getting tender love and care until they are adopted by needy gardeners.  First load delivered - well done message board!  (If anyone wants to see more on facebook, go to the facebook page called 'Community Blooms'.)

Brilliant job everyone! 

By the way, I tried searching for Community Blooms on FB, but nothing came up. Any clues?

Sycamore seedlings

Yep, gazillions here too. Mind you, we do at least have the trees so can't blame the neighbours...

Well, I have to say it looks like Chionodoxa luciliae alba to me. (Now renamed Scilla something or other).

Well done Berghill! I googled this and it looks very like the pic above. Lovely!

Blippar for Tablets and Phones

I think trillium is probably right. By scanning the Blippar symbol, extra info appears linked to content on that page. Eg on a wildlife page, Blippar opened a birdsong section. I haven't used it much, but noticed a few letters praising it in the latest magazine.

Leaf blower/vacuum/shredder

Wow, love that monster machine Billy Goat!

I'm happy to carry on raking and lifting (often use one giant plastic hand to help me scoop, into an irritatingly collapsing garden bag) from grass or slabs, but we have a gravelled area which is a bit tricky. Luckily it's usually windy enough to blow the leaves into piles or along the wall. Can the machines work over gravel?
