"Hello Thea,  I just know that raspberrys hate soggy or chalky soil, so I'm using a good compost with added perlite (for help with drainage).  They like a fair amount of sunshine too, so I'm keeping my finger, legs & eyes…"

"Hello again, it seems an age since I was last here, which it probably is.  The weather here isn't much better than it was last year, so I decided not to do potatoes this year, last year they all were affected by blight.  Instead…"

"Mine live in an area that gets very little sun even in the summer, they seem to thrive in the damp shade.  Every year I have to cut them back as they spread easily."

"We had a heatwave in spring and then the wettest summer for years...gardens & fields flooded and I mean serious flooding.  My potatos & tomatoes got blight and had to be destroyed.  My runner beans did OK, but the crop was small…"

"Quite!  The only veg I've been able to crop have been my broad beans, and I planted those last November.  Other stuff is drowning or rotting in the beds.  Very frustrating!"

Hi Christine nice to hear from you. I hope we can all benefit from swapping ideas and advice about our common interest,. gardening. I found this site to appear to have such a lot of lovely sounding people on it, not like some I have come across. I have looked at other UK based sites but nothing is as good, with as many members and/ or they are connected heavily with advertising or a manufacturer with a vested interest. I hope we can develop the UK side even more. Not sure how to go about it and asked for comment from the website creators but got no answer. I love to have people from other parts of the world as members of the UK site , as we are members on theirs, but you have to go through all of them to find out which are actually from the UK. I am trying to think of a way to simplify that and somehow list all who have a UK address separately, still on this site of course as I would not want to break away from it, the members are so beautiful and friendly in what they say and show.
