Very glad it is not just me!  But it's quite frustrating...

Loosing my followed threads

I'm confused.  I thought that when I contributed to a thread, it would appear in my 'followed threads'.   But no.   Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't.   And sometimes it starts off there, but then disappears (this happened with the 'Seed Swap' thread recently.

Can anyone tell me how to do this right?

One of my flower beds has a 'tropical' theme.... so I like the 'easy' exotic look, like cannas gingers, dahlias..... any other suggestions?

Never re-polished ours and they are good as new, now five years old.  Every now and then (when visitors are coming ) we polish them with a window-cleaner spray and soft cloth.... and they absolutely SPARKLE.

Thanks both.  Hmmm....that doesn't sound too good! 

Variety - I think - is daphne odoro (possibly Jacqueline Postill?)

I have two fabulous daphne bushes in the garden, planted about 10 years ago.  They are the stars of the show at this time of year, absolutely covered in bloom and pumping out delicious fragrance that fills the whole garden.  The problem is that they have now outgrown their space - they are about 7 foot high and four foot across.  I need to reduce them - certainly reduce their height. 

Can anyone advise on how best to go about it, without losing too much of next years flower?

Aw, Pale Rider, I'd have got that one!  I should look in on this thread more often...

Can you recognise:   "This kind of certainty comes but just once in a lifetime"?

I'd definitely say wait til your spring before writing out the death certificate - there is just a chance it will get over its shock and come back again after a rest over winter.

Poor thing!
