When is it best to Weed

If you're going its best to do it when it's dry, that way any weeds lifted will wilt and die. Handweeding is easier on damp soil.

Agree with Dove, I find bush varieties do better outside for me than the cordon type. You could try an experiment with Gardeners Delight which can be grown either way and see which is better for .

I hope the GW team are listening to the members on the forum. This is a really good site but it's in danger of losing its contributors if it doesn't act to repair the damage.

It's so nice to pop in here and check on people's progress, achievements and sometimes the disasters which befall us all. 

Why is it that so many times 'change' is seen as progress, when what is needed is evolution not revolution.

On a gardening note I've put out my brassicas, a mix of Calabrese, Savoy's, Summer cabb and Sprouts. All tucked away in a butterfly proof enclosure. Also planted out my Celeriac as forecast is for warm nights now and as I'm off to Wales for a week on Sat, they will fair better in the ground than left in pots.

Fingers crossed that these issues are resolved.

scroggin - we've tested this, and posting pictures from mobiles appears to be working as it should be. Have you waited a few moments for the picture to appear? The uploader is a little slow at the moment.

 Nora, the problem is if I try to add a picture to a new thread, nothing happens. It works fine on an existing thread!
