Yes, i can scroll up and view the typing box in a little half inch strip, but as soon as i type another letter, it rolls back down again.

I belong to four other forums and they are all fine, its just this one.

Probanly nothing to do with the running of the site, but does anyone else have a Samsung tablet?

When i want to put a comment on a thread, the typing box dissapears behind the keyboard, ok for those who type well, but for me, i have so much correction and have to put the keyboard back down to see the typing. Takes me ages to put a comment in.

I have mine flat to the glass, you will need to buy spacers, that will make an airflow space and keep the greenhouse warmer. Its like double glazing on your house windows, the bigger the space between the glass, the more effective it is.

winter fushia

Its always best to cut off those first flowers, the plant will grow bigger root, it cant feed flower and grow roots. I didnt find deep purple overwintered outside, so I would keep it in somewhere cold but frost free. Keep it fairly dry, it will rest for the winter, then shoot out again in the spring.

If your hardy fuchsia is in a pot, I would plant it in the ground as pots freeze quicker that open soil, the put some mulch over the top.
