Busy, best just to forget Brumbull whatever he may do.  No, I didn't start morning and evening Brumbull has been tinkering    Just accept one guy  matter what name he responsible.  Nobody is hijacking Brumbull.....there is no mystery Busy.  Don't waste your energy trying to figure him out.  It feeds his ego to see his name mentioned here.

Windy here, dry and fairly warm. carrots too but a tad early.  I eat  loads of carrots in the summer...sweet, raw and better than sweets.  Prob so my first batch next month 

Positive thoughts and silly things for the tough times

Have you not updated here?  

Brumbull was the wind up merchant here who caused so much trouble.  The forum controllers have stopped him posting but he is still trying to cause a little mischief.  His posts have been removed after a series of rants from him.

Hic, hic. Tracey.   It will all be sorted.  Hope you enjoyed your night out.

 Funny, I have just ignored the false Verdun and it was so weird apparently ignoring myself.  Just check the number of posts and info about me first before ignoring "me" though.

(he actually seemed a nice guy when he first posted and started some imaginative posts so it's a pity it's all gone pear shaped)

Help for flooded gardens

So far, it's still the pasty support down here.  At the foodbank on Tuesday I will ask about ways we can possibly help.  I feel chuffed that so many here are concerned like this

I've reported him too and had a chat with local member .....hopefully he will find out some info and take it from there.  

In a strange way I feel sorry for this guy...but now he just wants to upset people

Help with shaded area

Hiya Poppy

I would plant hydrangea there.  Test your soil first to see if it's acid or alkaline.  A blue hydrangea if it's acid soil and a red variety if it's alkaline.  

The soil test....PH very important.  Let us know what it is and then we can suggest plamts.

However, perennials like astrantia, astilbe, rudbekia, Heuchera, hellebore, erc etc.  will grow well there giving colour from winter to summer.

Taller shrubs like mahonia, viburnum, even varieties of holly will do well there.  Smaller shrubs like potentilla, daphne, euonymous etc too are worth considering

Fairy, that cake........wot can I say?  Is it ALL for me?  Not all of it surely?   Ha ha

Good to hear from   Punkdoc. 

Had a visit....and small from someone I helped. (listened to mostly) over the Xmas. Huge black cloud over him but now he's good and optimistic.  Great believer in talking....listening....cos everybody gets down or worse..  It's just normal.

Well, my hostas didn't come today after all....Monday though I'm sure    But a good day

Ah!  That's nice David.  Lots of sentiment for Geoff.  Gardeners world has never been the same.  He was so inspirational

Your honesty, integrity, frankness and openess is hugely appealing and endearing on the forum.  Clearly everyone is fond of you even though few of is really know one another.

The guy causing the issues also caused the problems a couple of years back....he has  got under the skin of most of us.  He's history.

I enjoy the forum for the fun,escapism, gardening knowledge, friendship and comments.  there is a nice group here I are part of it Punkdoc

You openly talk of your depression....most of us can identify with that too....and to my mind it shows strength.
