I like the fact that I can now post pics and add emoticons from an Android phone.

Not so keen on the page layout, seems a lot of wasted space so can't see many topics at one glance.

When We Were Young

Walking to school and not seeing a single car with parents dropping their kids off, and before you ask I wasn't born in the age of the horse and cart, though some mornings it feels like it.

Bad Day

Hi Sophie, I think everyone feels a bit like this during April and May. I was chatting with my brother about it and he summed it up by saying you need those 2 months to be twice as long to fit everything in! Once plants start to harden off and get planted it does ease off, I think of it as ' Happy Madness' at this time of year.

What is your weather like?

Beautiful sunny skies, cold overnight bit looks like being a cracking day.

It does happen, sadly more than people think. On our plot, about 2 yrs ago, everyone who had a shed had their power tools stolen, ie lawn mowers, strimmer etc. We know who did it because someone saw the culprit unloading his van with all the items, he lived just round the corner from the allotments. Unfortunately the police couldn't prove anything so nothing happened.

a1154 I wouldn't plant daffodils in wild areas only urban sites as there is a concern that daffodil cultivars are hybridising with the native daffodil.

Blueberry Plant still sleeping (or dead)?

It really needed to be ericaceous soil or compost, blueberries don't tolerate a lot of general purpose composts so you could retry potting it into ericaceous medium but it doesn't look too promising.

What soil was the blueberry potted in, if the PH was too high then this may be the problem.
