Thank you.

Birdy, go to photobucket website and register for a free account. You will then ned to install the photobucket app onto your iPad. You can then upload your photos from your iPad to your photobucket account wirelessly via wifi using your iPad.

Once they are on your photobucket account there is a way of copying certain information codes that you then paste on here. I do exactly this with my iPhone. There are folk that say the photobucket app doesnt work, but I can assure you it does, you just have to know what your doing. I can give you further info if/when needed.

I started re-edging my lawn. Probably one of the most impactive jobs for such little effort!

Went around the garden placing plant labels to mark each plants location. In Autumn I plan to lift them all when I redesign the garden. I prefer to use these black T lables with a white marker..

B&Q M.Purpose Compost Issues.

Posted: 12/05/2013 at 14:43

Im very pleased with the three 125L bags of B&Q Verve MPC Ive used. I always sive it and whilst there are a few twigs etc overall its been very good.

Ive also purchased a few 60L bags of J Arthur Bowers compost which is on offer @ £3.60 per bag. I use this a couple of years ago and was pleased with it. The following year I went with sone well branded compost and it was awful, full of white mould and stones etc.

Im sticking with J Arthour Bowers and B&Q Verve from now on.

Visiting Malvern Spring Show

I find the GW show at the NEC a huge dissapointment and refuse to go again, I wouldnt mind visiting Malvern but not if its the same as the GW show.

Is it usually better than the GW show at the NEC? 

bamboo

Posted: 09/05/2013 at 15:56

You need to establish which variety of bamboo you have. I have 4 bamboo plants and they are all clump forming varieties that don't spread. If yours is the type that spreads then a plastic pot won't restrain it I'm afraid, it will eventually break through. You could surround the pot with concrete pavers though, dug into the ground.
