Really Daft Question

Posted: 19/05/2016 at 16:43

I prefer square pots for a better root system, roots will go round and round in the bottom of round pots, they don't do that in square one.


also, you can fit square ones in a tray much easier.

Plant ID?

Definitely not a mese wotsit.. Not sure what though, don't think it's a poppy. The one on the right is.

What is happening to the foliage on these 2 fuscias

Posted: 19/05/2016 at 16:31

shouldnt be in ericaceous compost, but you'll know it it's rust, look on the underside and they will have bright orange dust on them. 


Looks like they've been a bit cold to me. You can see how only the newer bright green leaves are affected,the dark tough ones are ok, cut the bad ones of and repot in multi purpose, I think they will be ok. Just check undersides for rust first, 


even if it is, all is not lost, repot, strip all the leaves off chop back and they should shoot out fine, I have rust some years, still got the same old fuchsias.

There are hundreds, maybe thousands, of us all using the forum in a different way and all using different sorts of equipment to do so.  Give the techies a break - or you could always try turning it off and on again

 It's funny you should say that because that is exactly what I did, and when I did reboot the iPad, things that weren't working before, did work then.


i have fiddled around and got everything working now, all I am waiting for is the pinch so that I can open up the type and see it better in the posting box.


yup. Edit still working.😀 And I can use the iPad emojis.

 Exactly, blakeys on your shoes, or dad sticking an extra sole on them.hand me down clothes that you had to wear whether they fitted you or not. Bread and sugar for tea, mind you, did you ever see a fat kid in those days. 


My mum used to say, ' don't talk to me about good ole days, cos I can't see anything good about those times.' 

EU. In or Out?

The new leaflet, very subtle....heavenly blue on the stay in side.....devil red on the out side.


do they think we are stupid and not see what they are doing there.


I would hate to think that someone might copy and paste something I may have told them in a PM on the open forum.

I did that with mine this year, you can get some flowers of sulphur for the edges, it's very cheap on Amazon, you only need a small packet of it. Leave about four chits on each piece.

Crumbs, I'm afraid to write anything on here now.  


We had a 'front room' Lyn.   Only to be used on high days and holidays.   At Christmas a fire was lit to expel the smell of damp and make it seem more homely.   It didn't work.   If my moth heard the door handle rattle to that room, she would shout "whose that going into the front ?"  come out of there.   The rest of the year we were all cramped into one room while the 'front room'  stood still in time.

 Exactly the same in our house RB😀
