I also think this is a good idea. The number of times I've seen useful advice and then can't find it when I need it!!     A scrapbook would save all the hassle of looking for old postings and be a quick reference.

What is this Leaf please

Hi Ragdoll,

This is how I resized my photo to upload it. My photos come up in "Windows Live Photo Gallery".

  • First make a copy of the photo you want to resize
  • Open the copy and click EDIT, ORGANIZE OR SHARE at top
  • Double click on photo you want to resize
  • Click on PROPERTIES in the wide blue bar
  • Click RESIZE and choose SMALL:800

Then upload the resized photo. I hope this works for you.

No flowers on Clematis.

 Hi Watermelonice,

This is my Niobe after a shower of rain. Hope it helps to identify yours.

Thanks sotongeoff, I wondered why it did that. It was OK before I pressed the submit button

<span style="font-size: 12px; line-height: 18px; background-color: #eeeeee;">I was NOT making snide comments about Monty Don. I was just saying who I preffered as a presenter. I am also not jealous of Monty's garden - I would just like to see more for people with tiny gardens like me. I like Gardener's World and my Sky box is set to record the whole series in case I don't get to see it on Fridays.

I liked Geoff Hamilton and Alan Titchmarsh best - less about rolling acres and more about proper gardening.  

Talkback: Build a brick barbecue

This is ours, built into the wall to terrace the sloping garden. It's much better than the general movable ones - it doesn't have to be put inside during winter or finish up as a pile of disintegrating rust by being left outside. It's always ready to use at the drop of a hat (or should I say at a ray of the sun!).   It has even been cooked on under an umbrella. I wouldn't be without it.


Talkback: Building a leaf heap

I've also used one for the last three years - when I need it for this years leaves, I put the old leaves in the compost bin. I also put the blossom from my ornamental cherry in it.

Digging fork

The "Dobbies" fork is also stainless steel, with an ash handle. Comes clean easily when you have used it - I just wiped it with some paper towel ( and I've got clay soil)

I have recently bought a "Dobbies" garden fork from the supermarket that is having the voucher exchange. Should have been twelve pounds odd but I used the vouchers and got it for about £6!!!! I also got some Sankey propagators for less than £3 each which I had paid over £7 for, earlier in the year. I think the offers end soon (may have even finished by now - sorry) The fork was easy and comfortable  to use.
