The forum is a lovely place to be right now...why even my stupid...yes stupid , I know......jokes are acceptable
There's a kindness, pleasantness and general appreciation here now.
A variety of threads, none above any other, to suit everyone.
I enjoy it....even when busy I like to catch up with the forum.
I find it helpful and educational.....beginning to appreciate what the wildlife people say for example.
its nice to share and compare advice, comments jokes

Matty, think Hollie hock has got it right. That's what I do. And pinch back to pair shoots to,double up the growth. I do this at least twice.
So, wait until you have few leaves and Hollie says ""when the seedling starts to look like a bit of a true plant"

Tina, you sound in the dumps.
I had worms for tea and......oh no that was spaghetti
Look. Not everybody hates you must like yourself a little bit
Feel so very much sun here today that I think I may have got sunburnt but,you had rain.
Ok. Sorry Tina. We all love you on the forum....we think you are simply the best!!!
Gardengirl ??ou have been busy. I like the white agapanthus as much as the blue. Looks like you're in for good show this year.
Sorry Matty about,your loss today....loads of lovely memories though I'm sure.

Plant identification please

Silver surfer, which is your favourite pieris? I like the little Heath varieties but they lack the bright red new leaves, dont they? My soil is not really acid enough for them but would like to add a dwarf variety

Plant identification please

Agreed but I thought Wakehurst solely because of size and later red leaves. .??
Definitely a pieris though. Lol

Brum, berry Smoothy is lovely plant though. Mine is outside my kitchen window. It is more sensitive to strong sun so I now have it in more shady spot. Yep, great minds, eh Brum?
