I'm with you Missy Krissy "oh sod it" is the answer and the more of us do that the quicker something will be done.

on that note " I'm out"

Hi Nora GW

i want to add that the adverts on the site are a pain In the neck.

They flick up and down, they interfer with one's concentration, and if you accidently touch one that's in your in the damn thing.

I know they are surpose to help with the cost of the website I understand that but I couldn't tell you what they advertise, because I will not look at them.

They do nothing for the distinction of Gardeners World, they make the site look cheap and detract from what it stands for.

Hi Nora GW

i am so relieved to know that other people are having the same freezing problem it has drove me mad more or less since we had the new website.

i haven't been useing GW website which has really upset me because the original GW website was perfect, straight forward and never gave any problems.

i really really hope you can fix the freezing problem and the problems I have had when sending I photo, it takes forever,then can be upside down or sideways, the message ends up on the photo with limited space.

i just got so fed up, I gave up.😰

growing rhubarb

Posted: 17/01/2017 at 10:26

Can you advice me, I have just bought a small potted early rhubarb plant which I intend to grow for a year or two before eating it.

i have bought a black plastic dust bin to grow it in. I intend to drill holes in the bottom for drainage, and stand the bin on some bricks to allow water to run out,

also put a few inches of rubble inside for drainage and stability.

i will then fill with homegrown garden compost mixed with grit to at least half way up Before I plant my rhubarb inside.

to any rhubarb growing people I would appreciate your reply and advice regarding anything you think I might have missed or can add to the plan.


Found some holes

Hi Joyce21 thanks for your suggestion, there are squirrels in the area so maybe your right, the holes are empty but maybe something else has taken the treasure out, but yet I would expect to see loose soil around but there aren't any.

We have set up a night camera so hopefully we will see the culprit.😉

These are mystery holes that have appeared in our lawn over the past couple of weeks. It's just as if someone has speared the lawn with a crowbar, twisted it and pulled it out.

the holes are random rather than in a walking pattern, they are about an inch deep,and most are quite smooth and purposful 

any ideas would be welcom, thanks.

can anyone identify these holes in my lawn, they are quite random about an inch wide, looks like a circle has been made and soil is either missing or been scooped out. They are not footprints because they are not uniform as in strides or something walking About??

Veg bed cover

hi Chris172

thanks very much, your patch looks well organised, I can see how portable your covers/tunnels are.

Although I only grow veg in a 6x6 bed your tunnels have given me encouragement to think about making my own cover.

I will get busy with the help of my hubby and design my own cover.

thanks a lot.😊

Veg bed cover

Posted: 20/07/2016 at 21:15

Hi everybody, as you can see my veg cover is worse for wear, the plastic has split and the Zips are forever getting stuck.

i have tried the usual garden suppliers on line but they don't stock this type anymore. The nearest is a micro net cover with elastic around the bottom, this seems like hard work accessing the bed without having to expose most of the veg each time.

Has anyone got one of these nets only ones and how useable are they? Has anyone made a cover themselves, maybe this is an option.

i have a 6x6 raised bed and two half hoops but no alternative cover, I would appreciate any suggestion.
