An "aggressive post" Dove?  I wasn't offended and I doubt anyone here will have noticed.

at least a caution or warning if necessary or a post censored but a whole thread....or two? 

Not comfortable with this.

Very, very,,very unhappy about this Buddyboy.  

It has also been deleted from my own history too.  

the forum is changing.

I often post mischievously, occasionally mildly provocative  and openly but nothing rude, offensive or to cause harm  

Hope members will speak up because this is not right 

hope Daniel comments to us all here or I will have to consider my participation here

Hiya Steve.  One about Merit75 and another on vine weevil chemicals.  

we can't have censorship here unless the whole thread  is sinister.

The gardeners in Gardening Australia seem to advocate pelleted chicken manure too Buddyboy.  For me it seemed to encourage foxes digging in the lawn.  I agree though lawns seem to respond well to it

surprised....nay alarmed....that a thread has disappeared from the forum today.  

We are not schoolchildren requiring monitoring.  A thread, maybe 2, has been deleted it seems.  A thread that had differences of opinion but still important and very much a part of what this or any forum should be.

does it now mean we have to be wary of posting anything possibly....possibly...contentious?  Any question, worry or issue will now be "self doubted" .

answers please Daniel? 


outside planting

You can newbe but better potted up and put in gh or fleeced.  You will have much better and bigger plants for planting in spring.

Get astilbes in there.  They will love the moisture.  Many have superb spring copper foliage and then produce feathery white, pink, red or purple flowers. Ferns too ....include the jap painted varieties.  Astrantias will settle there if not overly wet.  Acteas and aconitums will love those conditions.  Carex like Testacea are evergreen and supply excellent colour all year round.  Hackonechloa with yellow mounding and cascading foliage.  Dogwoods.....elegantissima has white and green leaves and Aurea has yellow leaves and both have brilliant red stems over winter.  Lobelias like queen victoria with red stems and red flowers, hadspen purple with brilliant red flcowers and Tanya with dark foliage will escel there.  Hydrangeas too.  Could go on and on but what an opportunity there davewl
