I've been riding a bike since I was really young and my mum taught me the correct road procedures from a very early age. One time though, I was crossing a dualcarriageway that had traffic lights on it, so I waited for the green man and then waited for the traffic to stop, it was 2 lanes and there was a lorry in the first one so I couldn't see the second, so I carefully started to cross and then next thing I knew I got hit by a car, that failed to stop and drove off. Luckily, he just scraped my front wheel and i hadn't fallen off hard, but still have a scar on my leg now.

As of my 16th birthday (last year), I got a moped and so many people treat you like rubbish. I've also had so many people pull out on me. The worst time was a couple of months ago and I was doing 30, then suddenly this old lady pulled out and I had to veer off of the road and she swerved and hit a van. We were both really shaken up, and she was crying, so I consoled her. Which I shouldnt really have done, but I didn't want her upset.

i guess what I'm trying to say is Clari, I'm really sorry for what happened and thank my lucky stars nothing like that has happened to me. I'll be passed my test soon and so won't need a bike anymore. Wish you all the best x


On a different note, there was a disabled person in Waitrose I saw struggling, so I asked him if he needed help and I needed up going round half the shop with him, picking things from high up and passing them to him. It made his day and he was ever so grateful. He asked me what my favourite food is and I said strawberries, so he went and bought me some. I couldnt believe it, and told him I couldn't accept them, I didn't do it for the thankyou and he told me that nobodies ever done that for him before and it was nice not to be left to struggle

I'm probably one of those annoying neighbours Ashleigh  I often listen to Rihanna, Paloma Faith or Jessie J (or similar), although I am aware of our neighbours. My nan lives next door to a same age woman (grand 'ol age of 81!) and at my house we have a disabled child who can get distressed with loud noises, so I keep it down, and when he's a school I turn it up a bit

Is it possible that they killed a part and that induced coral spot? Just a thought.

That sounds really wierd. Nut, is it possible that they were eating a pest off the plant or something? 

age of sycamore tree

Well I've just read that they take between 20 and 50 years to reach full maturity And that is between 20-35 metres. They also live upto 400 years, so I'd say between 20 and 400 years. Not really a help I know, but it's something

Whoops, sorry Tracey!

I saw these on Beechgrove Gardens, that lady grew them and tasted them. I'm really wanting to try them, but I don't like melons or cucumbers, and you guys aren't singing their praises, so maybe I won't

Haha that's alright, I just hope I'm correct 

Help ID these plants, please

Yes, Zantedeschia, although it might not be. I believe they are poisonous, and can cause itching or burning. It may be an idea to remove it, they're actually quite expensive plants!

Quite possibly. Many leaves when touching something wet rot. I wouldn't put them in the GH, as they're fully hardy and quite forgiving. Trying watering directly into the soil, or if it rains, wiping the sides of the pot maybe? I hope thatd do the trick
