My latest post - now you see it, now you don't

Posted: 16/06/2014 at 08:11

On 15th June I added a post to a thread started 2 days previously.  When I click on this thread, my post is clearly visible.  But in my list of followed threads the "latest post" should be mine, but instead it is given as the one before mine.  What is going on? 

Also, if I click on the Latest Posts list, it's not there either.

Bit Disappointed By Gardeners' World Live This Year

Didn't Perennial have a Plant Creche there?  They do at lots of shows.  For a small donation to the Gardener's charity, you can leave your trolley there and keep coming back to fill it with plants, saving you the inconvenience of trying to steer it round people, which often slows you down a lot.  For those who don't know, if you are happy to help staff a Perennial Plant Creche for a couple of hours, you will be given a free ticket to that show.  I know they were recently looking for more volunteers for their Hampton Court Plant Creche.  Contact their Volunteer Coordinator, Laura Garnet via Twitter @act4perennial or 07717 727213 for more details. July 8-13.  If you are on Facebook you can have a look at their page:  Perennial GrbsHelper

Honeysuckle Scentsation dropping buds

Posted: 12/06/2014 at 08:43

I've opened up some of the buds and there is a sort of inanimate little larva inside.  Any ideas on how I can stop this happening?

Help! I'm being attacked!

Can anyone recommend some thornproof long sleeved gloves that will save my arms from being shredded when I'm tying up my extremely exuberant climbing roses?

My honeysuckle is smothered with potential flowers, but the buds are looking a bit feeble and dropping off before they open.  Why is this happening, and is there anything I can do to stop it?

Agastache Black Adder

I have 3 of these planted last September when they had lots of lovely flowers.  All I can see this year are some little sticks but no obvious new growth.  Are they usually this late to show signs of new growth?  They are in a border which is shaded early and late in the day.  Have slugs or snails been at them?
