New papers and links have been added to the pdf lists on the Scientific Literature pag
e, within Finding out More in the Garden Science section. The links, which were set up by Marc Carlton, should make researching the scientific background to gardening much easier.
Garden Habitats has its first and probably most important section with five pages on garden ponds, their establishment and management.
Garden Wildlife is starting population with the first animal group - mammals - covered with an introduction and 5 pages. Many thaks to David Wembridge from PTES
. We will be putting up pages on the other vertebrates soon, and then a long series about the invertebrates, particularly insects. Other pages on Practical Advice will follow soon.
The Search facility is now back and working well on all pages. Sorry about the delay!
The next part of "Practical Advice" is now live. This is the Garden management
section and it currently contains an introduction and pages on compost, pests and diseases, and managing without using peat.
We are having a temporary problem with the way the Google site search works with our pages, and we regret this facility is switched off until we have found a way to solve it - which we will shortly.
The flier and programme for the next Forum conference is now available here
and the booking form will very soon be available.
New Pages to 18th April:
At relaunch the new site contains nearly all the material on-line on the original site, and some has been updated during the transfer. The few remaining of the original pages will be posted in the next week or so.
The biggest differences on this new site are the improved and more conventional navigation system, and the system-responsive nature of the site, with each page designed to fit on lap-top screens and older smaller mobile phones in landscape mode.
Our newsletter archive is now on-line, and you will find new pages for our Trustees' blog and for news. These aren't very full yet, and it is up to you to contribute!
You will also find requests for you to send in photos (and videos) that could be added to our gallery, and help illustrate the many articles which are in preparation for the garden wildlife section.
To help with this we have upgraded our Contact page, and you should find it easy to send in photos or text pieces.
PLEASE let us know if you find errors in the texts, pictures or structure of this site so we can correct them.
