It's probably on here somewhere, but is there a discount code for Thompson and Morgan and is it only for subscribers to the mag?

Thanks for the responses - it is phalenopsis. 

I understand that it is better to water from below and the instruction card that came with it says not to remove it from its pot.  Will it not become potbound over time?  The other thing that it says is to cut off the flower spike when it's finished - what happens after that?

What is this glossy leaved evergreen?

I thought as much, I saw something very similar in our local park last week and strangely enough I knew exactly what it was but somehow it looked different to mine!

Senior moment! 

Thanks Guys

 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

Posted: 02/02/2014 at 11:15

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?
