Joe's iPad App

Hi just wondered if anyone knew which app Joe uses on GW to design the gardens? He obviously uses an iPad and have look up the drawing programmes available to buy, but can seem to find the one he uses.

Would be interested in getting the same one as it looks pretty good and easy to use.

Thanks for the reply, thought that might be the case. 

Just have to wait til the spring then.

Growing plants in winter?

Just a thought. Was wondering this time of year if it's worth or possible to grow some plants in doors on the window ledge in a propagater? Or would they just be week and leggy. I normally do this in the Spring but get a bit bored this time of year so thought I might give it a try. Many thanks

Finally after a few emails back and forth I can now log on and download the digital edition. First I didn't exist, then I resent all my details to them which they reset. So put my old subscriber information in and it now works.

Is it possible to archive these from the iPod or can I log on my computer and download them as PDFs. Reason for asking is I could then recycle the print version when finish reading them

Ha good one. I normally take a couple of hours hacking away at the tree stump then sit down and have a beer.
Good satisfaction though when you finally achieve it. And lots more room to put more plants.

One of my favourite subjects. Just a shame they don't show you on Gardeners World these kind of everyday issues.
Been working in a garden for the past couple of years on and off and am eventually removing about 30 no exaggeration Conifer trees some about 18" to up to 4 foot in diameter. Once you have chainsawed them to the ground you need to dig underneath and around them use strong loppers to chop of the roots as you go or what the call a Mattock which is a cross between a axe and a pick axe. Lots of swearing and good exercise. You will find that once you have chopped some roots you will be able to start moving it. That then means then you are on the home run and nearly pulled it out. Wish I could put a couple of pictures on here to show you.
All the best of luck

Hi just wondered if I am the only one having problems with trying to get the iPad version of GW. Registered with them over a month ago. Downloaded the app tried to log in and says doesn't understand my email or password. Tried to get onto there website to see if my password was wrong by using the reminder and says 'sorry need password to do this' which is what I am trying to find out. Went back on site and tried to first edit my details which it wouldn't let me do, so tried to create a new account and says 'I am already registered with these details'. I have been using computers since 1986 and find this site frustrating to use. I emailed them and told them through their link which is buried within their questions and answers and they replied saying my email wasn't registered. This is a complete joke. Be quicker to rip out the old pages from the past mags and scan them in as PDFs. Can't they just sort this out for me Cheers Ziggy

Many thanks for all your replies. 

Not sure what Euphorbia would be ok, don;t know if Eurphorbia Melifera would grow there which I have grown before as I think this needs a lot of sun, just tryng to think of another version which would suit it and would be big enough to mask the back fence. I know Pyracantha is a horrible plant, but the reason I thought of it is to stop anyone trying to get over the back fence.

I can see myself sawing the big lylandii down in order to get more moisture and a bit more sun

Just wondered if anyone could help me with a solution for an evergreen shrub to mask the back of a garden fence which is over shadowed by a huge tree. Basically the back of the garden faces West looking towards the house and at the moment when you look from the house to the garden all you see is the back of the fence and I would like to mask it. The ground is clay and very dry as it is overshadowed, but does get light and sun in the evening so is not in shade. But as bone dry. Being trying to work out a solution for this as I would like to build decking there and then put other shrubs around. would a Aucuba Japonica or a pyracantha or some kind of hedging plant survive there if I mixed in loads of muck to give it a start. Your thoughts would be appreciated.
