Your new-look forum

What's the other site called Lyn? Really going to miss people on here. This is so sad. 


I thought the idea was to improve things? This is pants. 

Awful new format for forum

Logging out - this is making my eyes hurt.


Gutted. I loved the forum as it was.


Please Please Please - change it back. 

Forum - New design

Oh dear.  This new format isn't doing it for me.  Where are the hot threads now? How do you go back to the page before? 


The colour contrast is too harsh. Feel like I'm squinting. It's like looking into a light bulb. 


There's no continuity...before it felt like lots of chats at the touch of a button. Now it feels like a big empty room. 


Please can the hosts have a re-think? I'm all for change if it improves something, but this isnt an improvement. Sorry Norah et al; I imagine a lot of hard work has been put into this but it's not a patch on the other version.  Please change it back....

Guerilla Gardening

Well done Hefty. That's so lovely.

I started a gorilla garden three years ago on a strip by our house. I've put in rhubarb, gooseberries and raspberries as well as plants from my garden that I couldn't find a home for. I weed it every couple of weeks. Very satisfying. 

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Lots of greenhouse doings! Potted up cornflowers and cucumelons, cosmos and dahlias. Planted out lupins and verbascums.  Planted out a solitary runner bean to satisfy my irrational craving to get them going! Also put netting over new runner bean frame and made bird scarers out of strips of foil. Other half says it looks like something out of back to the future!

Anyone brave enough to plant out runner beans yet?

Thanks all. I will sit tight.

hello - has anyone planted out runner bean plants yet?  Too much risk of another frost?

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?

Hi Chicky

great that yours has lots of flower buds. Are they standing upright? 

Mine is still in the cold frame. Not brave enough to plant it out yet. Might do so next weekend. 

Interesting loooking plant. Curious to see what it'll be like in full flower.

Finding lots of blue and White pottery when I dig....

Ah thanks. Whoever it belonged to was definabley into those colours as that's all we find.....oh, other than the bricks, rubble and plastic bags of cable that we have found!

The Viking Way walk runs by our house so we get a fair few detectorists about.

hello

been digging over a new bed and keep finding bits of blue and white pottery. 

Is this quite common? My house is quite new and built on a former agricultural field. it seems to be all over the place.
