    Thanks Richard for your time and effort. Sounds like a hugely frustrating week you've had. Go grab yourself a Caffreys !!!!

    £325 - a new record?

  4. Blocky71

    What happened?

    Yeah I was hoping that when it did come back online it would be faster. It was getting painfully slow even before the site went offline. Nothing seems to have changed....

    The vft's are looking fab Fab Are you using deep pots?, I can't quite tell from the photos.. After a bad season last year I've repotted into 17cm deep pots, the plants have definitely improved !

    Idiot!

    He's on here as James something and I think his eBay account was northkentcarnivors or similar. Yeah small world, I was at cokes from 2004-2012. Ruxley garden centre used to sell cp's through the summer although garden centre prices are steep. James's plants were well priced and I've got some surplus Sarras and vft's also if you're looking to expand @TeaCake Cheers Chris

    There's a fellow in Bromley if I remember correctly, loaksey I think was/is his username. Not seen him about either lately....
  11. You can skip dormancy in the first couple of years with your seedlings so I don't think it matters really when you sow them except that growth will be slower through the winter months. Everyone has their own techniques and I was just dabbling with some spare seed but I was surprised how well they took off..

    Idiot!

    Ahhhh, I know Orpington a bit and I used to work at cokes just down the road in foots cray... I'm guessing it's the same fella in gravesend, I've collected some plants from him a couple of years back. He used to always have listing on eBay but can't say I've seen him lately. I'm down in chavvy Chatham

    Idiot!

    Oops Dunc, ( when I typed Dunc it autocorrected to Dunce ) I'm relieved I'm not the only wazzock on here ! . @TeaCake Thank you for your commiserations!, I did manage to collect up a fair amount since but looking like us Kenties are in for another dry spell. Where abouts in Kent are you TC ?, there's a couple of us about, my nearest hobbyist is Gravesend. cheers chris
  14. They're all still going well @TeaCake , the vft's are slow to grow from seeds but I reckon I have about 200 baby vft's , the sarras I just plonked in a pot so I'm not going to guess how many there are but they're about 2 inches high now. I cant remember exactly what the containers are but they were either McDonald's or KFC desert containers, ice cream or krushems I believe.....

    If there is a decent lip on the ledge you could use a couple of " G clamps " going from under the ledge lip to inside the box.
