Posting messages / Starting a new topic

You have a question to ask or something to say? Remember you must register as a member here before you can do so.

First, choose which "board" you want your message to be in.  Should it go under Herbs, Weeds, General Discussion, Feedback or something else? Click on the board in which you want to post  your question or comment. This will open the page for that particular board, showing a list of the subjects that have been recently posted (if any). At the top and the bottom of the board, you will see some buttons on the right hand side.

Click on the new topic button.  This will open a page with a blank field into which you type your message. At the bottom of the field are two grey buttons - Post and Preview. As you would expect, the Post button puts your new message on the board for all to see, while the Preview button lets you see how it will look without actually posting it.

Give your new post a subject which will let people know what you are writing about. This helps get answers to your questions and also helps others who might want to search through the forum.

For more information, click the help button on the upper left side of every page then choose Posting from the headings at the top.

Registering / How to register

If you register then you become a member of the forum. As a member you will be able to join in by adding your own messages to the forum. At this stage, all I ask is that you provide a valid email address in order to join. Your email will not be provided to anybody else - privacy and confidentiality are important and must be respected.

Register by clicking on the "register" button near the top of the page. The process is quite straightforward. You will have to think of a password that you will remember, so that nobody else can come here pretending to be you.

Still not sure what to do? Click the "help" button (above left, not this one) and select "Registering" from the list of topics at the top of the page that comes up.

When you are registered, you can login to use the forum. It is advisable to logout before  you leave, as an extra precaution, rather than just close the web page. Members can personalise their visits to this forum, use the "Profile" button.

Soil, Compost, Mulch and Worms / Soil Fertility
« on: November 25, 2006, 08:44:02 PM »
A simple summary of how to ensure garden soil is fertile:
  • Keep the organic material in soil topped up with compost and organic mulches
  • Look after soil structure - keep it open and "crumbly"
  • Add nutrients to the soil that it might be lacking, using natural materials
Healthy soil grows healthy food. :)
