 I had no idea I could do this, thanks Guys!  The bottom one was taken in the pouring rain, sorry about the quality.

See if this works, it goes to another forum.  It's a shame we can't preview our posts on this site.

I've been given an orchid for my birthday - can I water it with tap water or does it require something special?

Compost bin

A while ago, my OH said he's found a compost bin that opens at the front - all the way from top to base - the two halves pull open like doors and then close back together again.  We can't find it anywhere - has anyone else seen this type?

I did wonder about a laurel, it is certainly not a dark green, more like the green in the Gardeners' World offers banner on this page,

No, that didn't work either - what a shame there's no preview option on this site so that I don't have to keep wasting time.  I actually did the whole process using Chrome this time but it hasn't helped.

The plant is now about three feet high, it has long glossy leaves rather like a Rhododendron but very glossy. It appeared about four years ago and is growing very well, it is hardy although we are in the 'soft' area of the UK where we don't get too much in the way of cold weather.  So far it has not flowered, I guess that's really going to be the only way of identifying it.

OK - I've just been out and taken new photos, it's absolutely pouring with rain so excuse the fuzzy bits but you should get the general idea (if it works).

OK, so the file is a .jpg and is 762 kb and it loads into another forum that I use but not this one which is most frustrating!!!  The other forum is nothing to do with plants so that's not going to help!
