How to post photos from iPad

Posted: 01/08/2014 at 21:26

Hey, Victoria, did you write that for me?  Thats great, do you always put your photo's in photo stream, I dont know anything about that.

You mention that if you take them straight off the pad that they will come out sideways, you see a lot of that on here.

Mine hasnt arrived yet, it will probably  take me a while to set it up.

Do you have any anti spyware on yours?.

Those 2 you sent me Bekkie, are proper little plants now, come on lovely thank you

I want to make a front border of geraniums along the edge to spill over onto the grass. If anyone has any spare little plantlets, I would love them, please.

Will buy or swap.

I garden for insects so thought I'd put on some pics from today and yesterday.


 lovely Victoria, will you be collecting seeds from 4 and 6 please.

Coppery orange sounds nice. I love them when they are fr esh, shame they go over, I did Chelsea chop mine, the pink one stayed quite short.

Mrs G, if you cut it with about 4 x 4 squares and leave a long 'tail' on each corner, you wrap that round the cane, start them off low and as the plant grows you can lift it higher,  you wil need a pair of pliers to twist it round the cane.

Thats it mrs G, we call it pig or sheep netting, but it makes really good plant supports.

I have made frames out of sheep netting, dont know what you call it in other regions, stiff wire with 4"squares, cut about 2'accross with a cane on each corner, they grow up through there and stay reasonably tidy.

The pink one is much shorter but still in a frame.

I wont be cutting mine down yet, its only just coming out.
