Where have all the posts gone?

Thanks for the update, think all this occurred when I moved house and coincided with my logon issues.

Where have all the posts gone?

I've just got access to my old profile after 3 months and also moved house. But upon my return there appears to be years of posts missing. Anyone know how, why or what's going on? :lol:

Re: Cheshirepalms blog - Planning for a new arid bed.

Aloe striatula is the most hardy/easiest to grow Aloe that I'm aware of. Polyphylla is a real looker and can be hardy to -8ish if it's true to species and not a hybrid.
Thanks Kris, I'll keep my eyes peeled for that, although I don't think I've ever seen it for sale.

Re: Cheshirepalms blog - Planning for a new arid bed.

Now the back is almost finished, some of bulbs that were started off in the greenhouse have gone in today, just the arums really to go in, and echiums if they germinate.

Re: Cheshirepalms blog - Planting the new border!

My lack of patience strikes again, should have waited until today when the grass had been cut and the sun was shining to the photos. Here's a couple from today in the sun. icon_sunny. I also had the chance to buy some citrus compost and repot my calamondin and a seed grown clementine that I grew fro...

Re: Cheshirepalms blog - Planting the new border!

Wow, you work fast. In an earlier post you said you wanted the fence up by June, so your over 2 months ahead of schedule! icon_salut The plants should hopefully establish well this year and rock in the years to come. Impatience is a terrible thing :lol:, But on a serious note its great to be ahead ...

Re: Cheshirepalms blog - Planting the new border!

With the above average temperatures over recent days set to continue, I decided today was a good day to plant the new border. Also I dug the one on the opposite side of the garden so all the palms are now part of the borders and not in the lawn, this should make cutting the grass a lot easier! Today...
