HI.


IT IS VERY GOOD TO SEE YOU BACK, LONG MAY IT, AND YOU CONTINUE.

HELLO FORKERS! June Edition

Posted: 04/06/2016 at 10:42

Hello all.


I was voluntarily not posting this weekend, but I have felt the need to post this.


Firstly best wishes to Pansyface, and her OH.


I hope this does not come over as to pathetic, or unseemly, because honestly I am not.


I do not have a lot of interaction with the real world, for reasons that I have probably bored you with enough. Therefore I am very dependent on my online existence via this site.


It has become a genuine life line to me, particularly when my OH is away, working long hours.


This w/e has really brought home, how much I value this site, and this post is a heart felt plea, that somehow we sort this all out, and return to the fun forum of old.


I am not as pathetic, as this may sound, I just value your company.


Love and hugs.

Morning.


I made my views well known last night.


I THINK THE TEAM AT GARDENERS WORLD NEED TO ACT NOW, AS THERE IS A VERY SERIOUS POSSIBILITY THAT, MANY OF THE LONG TIME, EXPERIENCED MEMBERS WILL DECIDE TO LEAVE, RENDERING THE SITE OF FAR LESS BENEFIT TO THOSE THAT REMAIN.


IF WHAT PANSYFACE DID WAS SO TERRIBLE, THEN PLEASE INFORM US WHAT IT WAS, TO HELP DIFFUSE THE GENUINE ANGER THAT IS FELT.


THIS SITE PERFORMS A GENUINE SERVICE BOTH HELPING WITH GARDENING ISSUES, AND, AS A SOCIAL SUPPORT NETWORK.


AS A COMMERCIAL CONCERN, I AM SURE YOUR ADVERTISERS WOULD WANT , AS MANY MEMBERS AS POSSIBLE.

Progress update

This is an outrage.


Problems with the new site are one thing, but banning someone for no good reason, is altogether another.


There have been many examples of very bad behaviour on here [ some would say that I have been responsible for some of them ] where nothing has happened.


I am disgusted at this behaviour, and need to think whether being part of this forum is a good idea any more.


Best wishes Pansyface.

Has anyone grown Meconopsis punicea?


It is a rare, red, and very beautiful species.


Seed is scarce, and I have never been able to source fresh seed, which is supposed to be essential for growth.

Odd colour for Lingholm, usually start dark, and get lighter.


Re: rock dust. If it is stopping slugs, it must be because the particles have sharp edges. If this is true, then surely it cannot be improving the mineral content of the soil, for which it needs to dissolve.

It be evergreen, slender and about 2m tall...

Fastigiate Yew?

The RHs have done trials on rock dust, and suggest that it does not have any beneficial effect,


Regarding Meconopsis seeds; I always sow mine in Autumn, as they seem to need a period of cold to germinate.
