Cant even edit my above post to correct my spelling mistakes. This new look forum is a bit of a joke so far.

^^^^ I can't even insert an image from Photobucket!!! The camera icon in the top right only allows me to insert photos from my computer. I don't keep my photos o m computer, they are stored on Photobucket website.

Where has the facility to insert image from a storage site like Photobucket gone?

I won't be using the forum for a while

Where is the 'Edit Post' function?

Where is the 'Insert Image' function? The camera icon only allows uploads from my computer and not insert image from a photo storage website such as Photobucket.

The overall look of this new forum is very poor indeed. It hardly encourages me to return to the forum as frequently as I used to.

In addition to the above, where has the Edit function one?

To continue from my above post, when I open this forum I can only see the first two topics - Plants and Problem Solving. Prior to the new changes I could see all the topics on my screen...

I certainly don't like the new look forum.

When viewing the home page showing al the different sections I  now have to scroll right down to the bottom of the page to click on The Potting Shed, whereas before the changes it was visible on the screen without having to scroll.

The same goes for when opening one of the sections, such as the Potting Shed, Where many of the topics were visible at a glance I now have to scroll down the page to see them.

Whilst scrolling down isn't exactly difficult, I just don't like the look and feel of the new forum, the visible changes appear a backwards step instead of an improvement. The background colour is far too bright for a start.

One of the main appeals of a forum or website is its initial appearance and ease of navigation and I feel this new look forum doesn't meet those expectations.

Daunting large garden and where to start

Posted: 31/03/2016 at 22:45

I would plant natural native hedges and trees to screen from the wind, then plant a fruit orchard, build a very large wildlife pond, sow a wildflower meadow, and have a nice meandering path weaving through.


I would also love a piece of land like that

I dead head the flowers, then in autumn I cut the plant back by about 50% so that the branches don't blow about and snap in the winter winds. Then in March I cut it back by about another 50%. In fact I did just that today.
