  1. Do not attach them directly, use wire to attach them ti the fram and the window vent, this gives you more room to manoever. c
  2. Is there a reference to the cross transplanting of purps in the two soils please?many thanks chris Edit to add that I have found it, though some of hte figures look somewhat odd. Chris
  3. Some colonies of mistletoe around chester, and I have the euphorbia mistletoe int the greenhouse. Chris
  4. Hi Ron, I've found then easy to grow among sarracenias, which afford some shade and humidity. Same compost and frost free. Seed is an option, I get quite a lot of volunteers. Chris
  5. Thanks -eventUally manged to turn of that option (it was reluctant to leave lol) and now it is working again Best regards Chris
  6. Hi Richard, Thanks for the reply. I have Forums, New Since my last visit, Items I started ticked - I have tried other time options like last 6 months - no joy. This is happening on a pc and ipad. chris
  7. I'm still suffering from this problem, Richard - can you let me know what the solution was please. thanks chris
  8. Could be peperomia P. ferreyrae or similar Chris
  9. It is water pennywort - a serious weed in the wrong area (like my outdoor bog). chris
  10. Hi Stephen, I agree that it will not acidify the water much, but the tannin will combine with some of the calcium and precipitate out. Adrian used sulphuric acid, I have used phosporic acid in the past - neither should be used by anyone not trained to deal with these acids as they are highly corrosive. chris
  11. One thing that may help is to fill the water butts with tap water, allow it to stand at least overnight (gets rid of the excess chlorine), and to hang a bag (stocking or pantihose is ideal) of peat in the butt overnight - this will help to absorb some of the hardness and an acidify the water somewhat - when done use the peat on the garden. chris
  12. Hi Fred, Lovely flower - many of mine ar starting as well - and the Norther/souther marsh in the area are doing as well. My variegated common spotted has many flower spikes ready but they are just openeing. best regards chris
  13. Not sure about this, but for those who post lots of precious photos it may well be a big change. What do you think? Is there anything the forum can do about it? or is it a non-issue? "UK.Gov passes Instagram Act: All your pics belong to everyone now" " The Act contains changes to UK copyright law which permit the commercial exploitation of images where information identifying the owner is missing, so-called "orphan works", by placing the work into what's known as "extended collective licensing" schemes. Since most digital images on the internet today are orphans - the metadata is missing or has been stripped by a large organisation - millions of photographs and illustrations are swept into such schemes. For the first time anywhere in the world, the Act will permit the widespread commercial exploitation of unidentified work - the user only needs to perform a "diligent search". But since this is likely to come up with a blank, they can proceed with impunity. The Act states that a user of a work can act as if they are the owner of the work (which should be you) if they're given permission to do so by the Secretary of State. The Act also fails to prohibit sub-licensing, meaning that once somebody has your work, they can wholesale it. This gives the green light to a new content-scraping industry, an industry that doesn't have to pay the originator a penny. Such is the consequence of "rebalancing copyright", in reality." http://www.theregist...r_act_landgrab/ chris
