This is silly. We recently had someone on these boards who was deliberately trying to cause upset and division, his efforts didn't manage to bring around so many threads.

I have no problem with people using certain words or wanting to say good morning to each other. When their intentions are good, and just wanting to be nice to other posters, there isn't an issue. Regardless of how untidy it might look.

Let's put it to bed, not be so self conscious and not worry about people being perfectly polite to other users. Life's too short.

Last Year 2012

What to grow on a one acre site?

It's not really a gardening question in all honesty. If it was easy to grow a cash crop and sell it on we'd all be doing it.

Have you thought about renting the land out for horses perhaps?

They're not the only ones, Wilkinsons, Aldi, Lidl and a whole host of thrift stores have realised gardeners still spend money. It's just, like the rest of the country, we're having to be a little more careful where we spend it.

I'd go for lots of different salad crops too as they wouldn't take up too much space and you could probably have a near enough all year supply.

Talkback: Growing autumn-fruiting raspberries

Posted: 18/03/2013 at 17:14
If you have summer fruiting raspberries, they fruit on last years stems, if these have been cut back this year you may not get any raspberries from those plants again. Autumn fruiting are fine to cut back every spring as they fruit on new wood (this years growth).
