Hi,

If you wanted to create a large (1m X 1m ish) Buxus Topiary ball but started with quite a small plant, would you just let it grow until it got to the height you wanted or do you have to trim it every year like the gardening books recommend

5 glass panes smashed, and the door has blown off smashing the glass in that aswell. I really think I need to move it because its in quite an exposed area but im not sure how easy that would be.

B&Q dead plants

Good advice Jim. That's the problem with B&Q, Homebase etc., they don't seem to really care about the plants, especially watering them!! They often reduce plants that look tired and wilting but all they need is a water. But hey, at least we get some bargains

Which? Compost reviews

Here's a thought. Has anyone ever stopped buying compost from GC and made there own and been 'self sufficient'?? I normally buy what's on offer at B&Q. Not there own brand though. It would be good to be able to make enough compost without buying it

Steve, I can see where your coming from but perhaps you made James feel unwelcome as well by saying that he shouldn't post that here.

BTW James, congratulations Oxbridge anyone??

Thanks Brumbull. Ive got a laptop ATM but its getting slow and sometimes the screen goes funny when you tilt it in  certain position. I only use it for browsing the web, online shopping, watching Youtube and using GW(!!) etc so looks like iPad is on the shopping list

Thanks for the replies guys. So do you prefer the iPad over the laptop? Or is there certain things the iPad can't do?
