I won't be using the forum for a while

Posted: 07/05/2016 at 23:37

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...

New Forum

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.

Soil over pond liner in a wildife pond

Posted: 05/03/2016 at 10:18

Is there really any need to clean the liner? Isn't a dirty liner part of the necessary balance of having a wildlife pond?

GW magazine subscription

I was of the same opinion a few years ago, after a while everything gets repeated and so I cancelled. But at £2 per issue I thought id subscribe again just for one year.

Well I ended up taking the offer of subscribing to GW magazine for £25. Once the annual direct debit has been set up I shall contact Immediate Media and cancel any future direct debits.
