I'm not so fussed about a thank you but it'd be good to know the person who started a thread has at least popped back to read the comments.

Recycling things to use in the garden

Posted: 26/02/2013 at 22:45
I've spent the last few days cutting up old crates and turning them in to planters (which will be used mostly for carrots this year) not bad if you can get them for free.

There isn't an option to insert smileys on an iPhone or iPad, you can guess some but it would be useful if the smart technical people would change the settings for us to be able to use the site in full.

Sweet Potatoes

Thompson and Morgan (and I imagine lots if other places too) supply sweet potatoes suitable for growing in the UK. They have plenty of information on their website about how to grow them too. Keep us updated I'd be interested to hear how your crop does.

Netting would work providing you get all the nasties off first, enviromesh would also protect your berries from birds and other pests.

no whinge gardening!!!!!

I tend to have no whinge gardening sessions at the allotment when I leave the other half at home.

I was given a cherry and plum tree from there for my birthday last week (which I'm really pleased about), I'd guess they are young trees (hence the price) though and it might take another year or so before they produce a decent crop.

What's the weather like in your area?

Looks very much like a lovely warm sunny day out there, then you step outside and it really doesn't feel like one.

Avatars & Profiles

Posted: 18/02/2013 at 10:48
Avatars just help other people recognise who's posted and give a profile a little more identity, even if not a picture of the person (or even a person at all). The smilies help as it's sometimes difficult to gage the tone of the written word.

I'd suggest a few suitable images for jon cob, but I'm afraid they might not be very polite.

Help with identifying this rapidly growing plant

Posted: 17/02/2013 at 17:23
It looks like a bad one and it isn't even the proper growing season yet, with everyone here stumped I suggest you contact your local environment officer with the information you've supplied here and ask them to come out and take a look.
