Good Evening FORKERS

Posted: 11/10/2013 at 23:50

Because it was suggested few weeks back and many seemed to want it.  When posters continued to ask for it  I asked for a sort of vote on it in an effort to resolve it ...wasn't aware of any "no's".   I had no agenda Tina.  Is it a problem?  Had Brumbull returned earlier I would not have suggested it, as my posts stated.  

Tina, I joined the forum to air and share horticultural matters.  Surprisingly......enjoyably, because it's not like this on other forums.....the subjects got to include cake, jokes, aches n pains and an understanding of, and empathy with the other guys n gals here.  

No thread is dissolved...they still remain.  I will participate still if it means continued unity

Well, I recently thought I was being clever singing (a spike milligan ditty) over someone doing research.  I am now deluged with all sorts of products.  I know the research /survey company and filed a complaint.  

Emailed junk is unsubscribed if I can or blocked.  About time unsolicited spam is properly comfrolled

 

HELLO FORKERS!

Am I missing something here?  I guess I'm a bit naive  I know nothing of WUM either....although i know what it means. 

I do enjoy the forum....enjoy most everybody who comments.  Value the obvious experts on it, respect the wildlife knowledgeables, and laugh at the wit too.  It's part of my brekkie routine.

I hope we all remain friends folks....despite my corny jokes amd love of cake

Eucalyptus Tree - should it stay or go?

Posted: 11/10/2013 at 22:28

Gambo....peace of mind assured now. A eucalyptus planted next spring will grow 6' anyway so you won't lose anything but your worry.  It's not another tree biting the dust.    For the record I dug up a coppiced eucalyptus some time ago that had a surprisingly large root system.  I guess it was prob 10 years old.

Well, I hope you make a packet AJK.    I have a feeling you will do very well

Thought about penstemons?    Cuttings root easily from all over the plant and everybody loves penstemons.  I used to sell plants and penstemons were very popular and profitable  Along with osteospermums

 

 

Eucalyptus Tree - should it stay or go?

Look, eucalyptus grows so fast,  a replacement planted further away from the house would be a sensible decision.  I cut eucalyptus every year down to ground level ...then you get those juvenile, blue leaves.  Of course I am talking about Gunnii which I think is the best for stooling.  

Not best practice to plant any tree too near a building.  Forget for a year or few and, before you know it, you have a problem.  

Gambo said a girth of 3 or 4" so it's getting bit chunky.

Hey, my old mate Brumbull is back.  It's good to have you again 

Just combined the two FORKERS......the womenfolk here couldn't multi task the two!  But still FORKERS....of course.

Think you will find its a happy forum Brum.  And some new members

Looks like you have not been well....I will have to read the other threads I think 

Now look Brum......we are looking to you to agitate a bit ......I'll get my coat
