I suppose the majority of people lose interest in their gardens at this time of year, so unless you are a botanically-obsessed garden nerd like me or some other similar kind of hardy perennial, you are unlikely to be turning to a site such as this for light entertainment. Presumably interest will pick up again in spring - some of the same people may even come back.
In the meantime, there would be no harm in trying a re-stimulation of those old threads.
I won't be doing it, though. I've a room to paint; that will be followed by a trip to IKEA and a few days assembling flat packs.
I'll be glad to get back out to the garden after that, whatever the weather!

Another one that has disappeared off the horizon is My Potatoes.

Room to paint = half a day.
IKEA = 2 hours.
Flat packs = few days???????????

Since I have over 1700 posts on here i suppose that makes me an elder lemon, I was planning to go to 2000 and then taking a sabbatical to give others a chance. We'll see. Maybe the internet and these chat forums have had there day and people are moving onto different things, I see even GIY which had such a huge following initially is dying a slow death on the internet I always knew that fad would fade.

But where will the voice of sanity and pearls of wisdom come from if you go? It's like Good Guy says it is seasonal here to some extent. Maybe it will pick up again.

When you are at that check for hair on the palms of your hands.

Hi Folks,
I would like to say hi, just moved here in June and have a garden which is exposed at 1000 feet with limited shelter so see it as a big challenge. When I read plant profiles I notice that the two things that's guaranteed to kill most plants is drought and wind and I have plenty exposure to the latter. Planning to put in shelter belts in the shape of hedges and get either a tunnel or glass house although they will run the risk of being shattered. Will be looking for advice over the next few months as this is a learning curve as have pottered up to now but having taken retirement have more time to do the things i like. BW Breezy

Hi Breezy,

You're very welcome.

You must have a big spread, as it covers two counties. Smile Smile

Hi Breezy
The nice thing about going into a new garden is the lovely surprises that comes up that you've not seen. Especially the Spring flowers

kindredspirit - I have a Co Cork address but live a few miles inside the Kerry border. Now I am sure there are 30 or so people in this parish who are in a simialr position and there are approximately 15 parishes that span this particular border and at a rough estimate that woudl make approx 450 people who are in this situation. Funy thing is when I moved here last June and went to the Kerry Co Co (this is where LPT etc. is paid for this area) they look all surprised and say I should go to Cork city and have my buusiness sorted through them. Fortunately I had been told of this beforehand and had checked with them so knew I needed to deal with Kerry Co. Co. Every time since I have visitedtthem I get the same response ' astrtled look and theOh dear me you have come to the wrong co council'. My neighbours tell me they have had it all their life so its just one ofthe joys ol having this particular address anamoly. Perhaps it will all be different nexy year when we get post codes?

I doubt if it will change immediately as what happened in UK at first. Nobody used them.
Now whats really annoying is when you try and buy something or ask for a catalogue. The first thing is they ask whats your postcode. When you say we haven't got one they think its really strange what no postcode and have been refused several times as they make out they can't send it unless theres a postcode. So when booking something online I write 0000 000, and 9 times out of 10 it gets through
