  1. Would it be possible to get all new members to introduce themselves first before they are allowed to post on other parts of the forum. I don't know how realistic this would be as I'm not great with all this techno wizardry stuff, i just thought it may help stop some of the strange comments by new members on some of the threads.

    Hello and welcome to the forum
  3. Hello and welcome. Yes it can certainly get that way over time when you decide the plants would be better in a greenhouse then you buy loads more as the greenhouse looks bare with so few plants. Then oops you've too many plants and need a bigger greenhouse. Only joking.
  4. Use a TDS meter before you store it just to check the water is ok before use though
  5. Oh [email protected]@t that’s what i get from looking at the forum on my phone. should have been thanks Bog boy, I apologise for the confusion Guy
  6. I cut the top off my broad leaf capensis as it had got very leggy and within 4 weeks new growth had appeared from both the stem just above the soil level and underneath soil level. They can die back to below ground level in wintertime if it becomes cold enough
  7. Hi Guy Thanks very much for the great photos and write up. It's helped me out massively.
  8. I use the water from our two dehumidifiers which are on 24 hours a day (obviously they only run when the humidity gets above a set limit as we live in a bungalow.) I use it occasionally when we haven't had rain for a while and my stock of rain water is running out. I check the toss every time I do this and it has always been 20ppm
  9. Do you have anymore pictures of how you attached all the pipework and could you describe how you fitted it as i have a Belfast sink at my front door waiting for a bog garden to be built in it. Thanks
  10. Hello and welcome John You picked a good book and to find one in a charity shop is very lucky, i always look for them when im in there but haven't found one yet in many years of searching. It is a good idea trying to keep a small collection alive, much easier to manage and get to know what each plant species prefers before going mad and amassing a huge collection.
  11. Hello and welcome, you have amassed quite a collection for a 21 year old. Hope you enjoy the forum
  12. Hello and welcome
  13. Well God only knows what i typed in to find the post as ive retyped in everything i can think of but come up with nothing, maybe evergreen and Westland were mentioned in the same post is all I can think of and i have mistakenly got them mixed up. Anyhow my bales of evergreen have arrived so thanks for the link Alexis
  14. Thanks Alexis you have no idea how much money you've saved me. Researching for the best peat on here without actually asking the question brings up a minefield. I have read up on many posts with regard to Westland peat and i will not be risking any of my carnivorous plants with their products. We did purchase some of their multi purpose compost two years ago for the garden planters and i decided on opening the bag i shall never use Westland compost again as it was full of what i can only describe as non decompostable organic matter.
