Posted: 22/07/2014 at 23:33's good to know that there is something out there that deals with it...thank you... although I have paid for security suite..which ought to.... but even so, this can always be used as an additional backup I think, as it doesn't conflict....working as it does in a different way...   I have read that the latest version 2.2, seems to be causing some people problems... and they prefer the earlier one....

..impulse buying again today..couldn't resist the much mentioned Calamagrostis acutiflora 'Karl Foerster'... got in in a 10 Litre pot for £12... so already a good size and it's absolutely gorgeous... I can't resist plants when they are just coming into flower like this, looking so young and fresh... bought an attractive container for it, for time being...

My tropical garden

..Japan suffers tsunami's and Brazil has more lightening strikes than anywhere else in the world... not for me.... we have a great maritime climate here and usually proper seasons... I like that... wouldn't want to live, or garden anywhere else... for seed sowing...well, we just dig a little hole and pop them in..

..I think for gardeners in Australia, somewhere like Melbourne or Tasmania might be better... more traditional European style I'm told...

..I've played around with the first two...using Picasa and vignette shadings.. it was a bit of fun - hope they don't hurt anyone's eyes...

...the 3rd photo is as it should be...  if anyone knows the silver foliage shrubs I'd like to know...I've forgotten what they are from when I saw them...

..thanks for letting us know Fishy...I've heard that's a b***er to get rid of... or at least it's complicated but can be done if you know what you're doing...

incidentally... I got rid of Java on both my pc's a while ago as I found it was not needed - I got fed up with keep popping up telling me to update latest version... I don't think you need Java unless you're into gaming or somesuch... otherwise you can safely get rid... made no difference to my computing at all...

Japanese blood grass

..I don't think you can grow that from seed... I notice that's for 3 x 9cm plant pots for £16.99 which is really dear.... I bought a large container grown specimen for about £3 from my local nursery the other week and divided it into 7 straight away...
