Todays trip is a UK regged car so nothing to worry about there and Germany it's a Nissan Navara + 16ft Trailer to and from! So no need for them also!

BTW: I stumbled across an Disco on Spanish plates up for about 10k euros i'll pm you the details if you're interested.
yeah that would be good, thanks.

I quite like Navara's too!

PM On it's way!

Unfortunately because of our location (London) space is extremely limited so we now have to hire a truck/trailer as storing them would be a nightmare..

Not bad tho, brand new Narava Trial with towbar for £120 for 3 days unlimited mileage!!

I'll shut up about it from now on, but the only way to disprove me and a lot of others thinking this is in fact our much loved Grooster is photographic evidence of some sort!

Not to mention Advent has been on this thread many times since my question and has defended herself against Debsy but completely ignored my post which could have possibly proved she is legit!

Something fishy going on and it's not from the rock and chips I had last night!

Please .......................

Whatever anyone thinks, no rules have been broken, and its unfair to keep making such comments with no proof. If you have proof then let me have it. If not then lets drop it She doesn't have to prove anything, for as far as I am concerned at the moment she has as much right to be here as anyone else.

Gracias

Shut up and do some work..

On that subject my mum wanted me to google about how to take a clipping/sample off a Rhododendron tree?

She loves em and has a gigantic potted one (no space to plant) that we saved from my late grandmothers home which seems to be dying now.

Thus wanting to take a few clippings/samples to try and grow something off it just in case my attempt at repotting it fails!

Help!

EDIT: BTW when I repotted it, it was not pot-bound or whatever you lot call it!

now is the best time to do it, take a cutting from any semi hard wood, the harder the cutting the harder it will be to re-root, but if the cutting is too soft wood it is more likely to rot.

The best way to do it is to put a few cuttings into a ot, put some canes over it and pull some plastic over the top, don't put it in direct sunlight, and the condensation from the plastic will water it just enough, so long as you atch the soil doesn't dry out. They should root within 6 weeks.


Alternatively look at the pot to see if the parent plant has put any suckers out, if its stressed then it should have, simply cut these from the parent plant and plant them on.


Oh and I have decided to take a mufty day
