Jacy, the slugs have not gone.  They are there waiting and watching for you to put out their next meal.

 Remove any flowers and repot in early spring.  You will find it growing fast then so repot a few times until it fills a 3 litre pot then plant it out.  A few pellets and/or night time surveillance and you will have good flowering plants in early summer 

Technical improvements to the forum

With all its technical faults this remains a great forum

Tootles, just numbing.  

These terrorists for the most part simply have a taste for blood; there will be "followers" inspired by their deeds who will glory in doing the same things. 

The world has changed.  

Despite our distrust of our government let us let us accept we need to let them invade our space.  Forget our " rights" .  Monitoring what every one of us does is now essential

take care people

Horrendous news from Paris.  Devasting and hugely upsetting.  Families yet again losing loved ones.  A nice evening turned upside down

It will happen here too and on a scale hitherto not known......not in a few years but tomorrow, next week, next month

The terrorists have opened up minds and imaginations to do the most terrible things on increasingly larger scale.  We have seen nothing yet.

within the migrant ranks hundreds of terrorists have sneaked in to wreak havoc in our once peaceful land.  It seems the only organised people are the terrorists themselves. They know exactly what they are doing and what they intend to do

Until our politicians learn another way more hatred, atrocities and attacks will happen

sorry folks.  It's with a heavy heart I write these things

No, the red leaved grass is not a panicum.....I was referring to your heavy metal grass.
