HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF YOU WERE JUST ABOUT TO TUCK INTO YOUR NICE MEATY MEAL AND SOMEBODY CAME ALONG AND GRABBED IT? 


I HOPE YOU ARE A VEGETARIAN, AT LEAST, AND FEEL THAT THE REST OF CREATION SHOULD BE TOO -  OTHERWISE I CAN'T UNDERSTAND YOUR ARGUMENT.

 Why do you often make disparaging remarks when someone (especialy a newby) asks a question? If it's meant to be humerous, you could at least add a smiling smiley to soften the blow! Sorry, but I've noticed this quite a lot lately.

Himalayan birch and ginkgo biloba advice

Posted: 20/08/2016 at 09:31

Whatever you do, make sure you get a male Ginko, the seeds of the female ones smell something like a mix of vomit and putrid cheese!

Feel a bit of a twit  I said "Allegro" instead of "Valegro" on page 2. Must be because of having a piano playing OH.

 You're not alone there, Liz. I always thought he was called Allegro as well!

What is this plant??

Topinambur? Definitely not bougainvillea.

Lubera

I have just order various perennials from them here. As long as the plants you buy come in 3 liter pots they are very healthy, the ones in small pots are very small and need to be potted on. I've just looked on Lubera UK and see that their Euonymous come in 13cm pots, so they will be quite small plants.

It's considered a weed, and she's probably afraid it will seed and spread to her garden. But she could have asked first!

Tomato curl

Someone else had the same problem just recently, Bexbrown, have a look at the answers here:

Mine did the same last week, but they've uncurled now. Probably irregular watering and temperature fluctuation.

No good emailing them to me, I only post the ones it'll let me . I'm sure there is a way to resize on a MacBook, but I can't be bothered.  Can anyone explain why the same camera on the same settings produces such differing file sizes?


It's wet outside, time for coffee and a soak in the bath I think.


See original post


Resizing on Macbook? Simples! Right click on pic in Finder, open in Preview, click on Tools, click on Adjust Size and adjust to required pixels (400 width is a good size), click OK, click File, rename pic and save. New sized pic should then be in your Finder. Then drag and drop into Forum.


Hope that helps!
