I wanted to be a horse too Panda but then, neigh, I thought I'm happy as a 'uman.  !!!

Lovely morning...peaceful, sunny, warm 

Dove, why did your ma sell your arm?  That wasn't nice

Jools, you should dig it up and replace it in the pot it came in and return it.  Just say it was mis sold to you as a hardy plant, or it's simply not suitable.  I've never had a problem returning anything and ...if your receipt is available....it will be a simple thing to do.

I agree with commemts made that there are lots of tropical looking plants that are far hardier and more pleasing.

How do I deter/ catch thieves from my allotment

I remember when some plants were pInched from my front wall and I lay in wait for a day or two...evening or two...with a catapult and hazelnuts as ammo.  The thing is to be invisible after you use it....

I would certainly use a catapult and not worry about the niceties of the law

Hey Mike.  Hope your health will be better soon. 

Although I'm "up" on the technical stuff gardening, etc., I think this thread and Mike's PH thread make for a more complete forum for beginners and the rest of us.

Hiya jools

Canadiensis is a very vicious foliaged plant.....not really good for imdoors in that respect.   Too vicious outside too I think

It is hardy down here but not in most places.  

Can you return it?   If you have your receipt there should be no problem at all. 

Canadiensis is not a favourite of mine....like Phillippa I prefer Humilis or almost anything else come to that.  

You can fleece it but the foliage will rip it to shreds.......and you if you are not careful.

Agree with Dave.  Dig your recipient hole first.  Hopefully you can then lift and replant quickly.  

Get if off your chest.

Ah, exams KEF.  I actually enjoyed them.  O and A levels. Had loads of pressure of course prior to them, mental blocks at first sight of the papers but then relaxed and got on with them.  Coursework I think is not such a good indicator of ability.  

Re WUMS.  I think there is just the one right now but, as I understand it, every forum, social group, anywhere where people gather in some way, has a WUM.  Part of life.

I think Nut is spot on.

....if a post is clearly offensive....and its from someone who has posted like this before....it is better to use the ignore button instead of replying to it. ,

Learned something about the origin of the name potash Alan.  I will use this in my conversations to impress

Liked Tony Benn.   Too far left though for me but a sincere man I think.  Had his principles and spoke up loud and proud.  Nobody quite like him today in politics.

Just  made a beef casserole to cook slowly later.  Made a banoffee pie too......ok, I bought it.  For others to enjoy cos its bit too delicious......er, rich....for me 

Have sent you pm Matty

Mist is lifting somewhat but I don't think a sunny afternoon is beckoning.
