I click on file upload to web in smallest format & then click select on your box.. too big... maybe as soo many of us are having problems the upload on your site needs possibly looking at...all I can think of...

    Reply to Jean: sorry to be unclear - the file extension is the type of file e.g. Word document or jpeg image, it appears after the file name e.g. 'myshrub.jpg'

    If the file is a jpeg, and the file size only 9279 byte, then it should certainly upload, no problem. I'll ask our technical team to investigate the problem for you! I'll send you a direct message shortly, which you can access by clicking your login name, top right hand corner of the screen, and choosing 'My messages'.

    Reply to Jen10: It does sound as if the problem here is the file size of your image - the maximum file size for uploads is 10MB. In order to upload the image you'll need to reduce the file size. Are you on a mac or PC? If you're on a PC, there may well be an application called Paint installed, which will allow you to do this.

    There is more info on Paint here.

    If you have any further problems, do please let me know! image

    can anyone help what is mulch? im very new to all this and mulch comes up alot!! thanks

    Hi Kimberbell, Sorry about the delay in replying... Mulch is just a material that you put around the roots of your plants, at least a couple of inches thickness.  It can be anything from bark chippings to compost.  It helps to keep the moisture in the soil, keep the weeds down and can feed the plant when the worms take it down to the roots.  I hope this helps, I'm not an expert.image  If this doesn't help, look up mulch on google and you will find lots of info.

    My tulips have nealy all been eaten down about 3" from the flower. Every morning they are laying on the ground, there are some small holes in the leaves as well, any ideas anyone please?. I have sprayed with a greenfly/white fly/caterpillar spray but I am not sure if its really working!.

    It could be either mice or rabbits.

    It`s probably Keel slugs Lyn, spread some slug pellets to sort them out. They live in the soil and only come out at night so you rarely see them.
