    • From an external site(eg a photo sharing website). Put the web address (url) of the image into the form and submit it. You can also add a YouTube or Google video like this (movies do not appear until the post is submitted).

  • Can you give me any guidance on how to kill off bracken which is spreading into my garden from the hedge and field next door?.  I regularly pops up in a tarmacadamed path.
