Seconded/thirded or whatever - not VB.  Probably weeds!

Installation of a greenhouse

I understand their pain - trying to interpret the instructions to erect a GH requires intelligence beyond most people!  But Steve, it would help if we knew where you are, geographically.  I know someone in mid-Devon . . .

Hah!  See that Daniel has sloped off top crack the bottle of Chardonnay, as recommended   But I think most people agree that a lot of hard work has been put in to address the criticisms that had been levelled at the new forum.

I hope that there will be more tweaks and adjustments to help all.  (btw I see two shades of grey rather than green - so only 48 to go, eh?)

ID Please

Heuchera, I think, though I don't know which specific cultivar.  Lucky you - I love them.

Do you ever sleep, Daniel?  Or do you take your work home with you?  We DO appreciate your continued input - but I also worry that you are always there:  Open the Chardonnay, for goodness sake, and chill out for a bit (Please).

Jimmy Jewel rings a bell.   Warris doesn't, though.

Hello Daniel - and thanks for the continued support and changes that have already made a real difference.

Just wondering about your crystal ball, however.  "detailed feedback you've given tomorrow"???  Hmmmm.  Oh to understand the complexities of the English Language and syntax, eh? 

(sorry - couldn't resist!)

Good one Malcolm.  But just wondering - who are/were "Jewel and Warriss"?  Not names I recognise, I'm afraid.
