Re: What altitude are you at?

BTW - there's an app for that. It's imaginatively called "My Altitude" on the iPhone. It uses GPS to find your location on a map rather than actually working out your actual altitude.

Really? Inland you would expect it to be generally higher. I am at 17m in the living room. 20m upstairs. :-)

Re: Old Member Returns

Hey Grub, Now that would be SPAMMING wouldn't it? http://Www.buyaparcel.com :-) Just opened our first showroom in too. We did some very late nights, going home at 4am sometimes. Anyhow, rather than scatter gunning various topics, I am really interested in; 1 - Any new/exciting plants that have been ...

Old Member Returns

I haven't looked around yet to see if some of the old faces a still learning and sharing on the forum. I just thought I'd drop in here first to reintroduce myself. I am Tom and I live in Lowestoft, Suffolk. My garden is terrible in that it is clay all the way! Up until last week, I literally had new...

Re: Plant ID Please

Thanks guys, shame that there's a catch to it, otherwise it would definately be the next purchase.

Apologies for being away so much. I either seem to be watering or at work at the moment.

Re: Struggling Skim

I always thought Sakhalin was a shorter form of Basjoo. I have managed to obtain quite a few Sakhalin and they do look identical to Basjoo. (When they are pups at least).

Re: Struggling Skim

Yes there seems to be a division of opinion here. I wonder if it depends on the source of the Sikki. This year my bananas have done pretty badly.... 1-BIG SIKKI- Fine and pupping. 2-BIG BASJOO- Dead??, may pup 3-BASJOO- Dead on the compost bin 4-SIKKI- Main stem dead but pupping nicely 5-BASJOO- Dea...

Re: EASTBOURNE challenges TORBAY!

Apologies for being away. I have been really busy at work. :D

Re: What is your most hated gardening chore

That's an easy one to answer......Cutting the grass...!!!! I really don't understand the obsession that English people have with "the lawn".. Take a reality check. It is NOT a lawn, it is nothing more than a scrubby patch of grass. Lawns are those carefully manicured things that you find at stately...

Think I might be joining you. Has anyone found another source for Montys yet? Can we not import them somehow ourselves? icon_scratch
