How about pruning shrubs to a single stem? This could be coupled with advice on the ideal shrubs to do this with.

Pruning clematis

Reply from Donald Hart

Not just when to prune but the practicalities of actually doing it successfully - particularly the larger clematis varieties.

Pruning of roses and clematis.

Reply from Donald Hart

Both the above would be valuable. On an unrelatd issue , it would be good if members knew the areas other gardeners come from, not in any precise detail but to facilitate useful contacts between those who face similar climate conditions - as for example here in central Scotland. Perhaps in general Shoot might do more to encourage contact between members.

What a good idea Donald - there are many ways this coud be done. The facility to Private Message other members would be advantageous, especially as sometimes many topics end up being a conversation between 2 members. Perhaps the county of residence next to members 'names' could also be used. This of course could be optional for members to decide to opt in or out.
Hopefully Nicola and her staff take some of our ideas on board. FYI I am also in Central Scotland

Hi Angie and Donald,

We do show the first part of the members postcode in the summary results when searching for a member or a garden. I will work on getting this same information added to the member profile too.

Member to member messaging is an absolute essential development for Shoot. I couldn't agree more! You'll need to be a little bit patient with us however as we are very, very small and are completely self-funded. Private messaging between members isn't a small project and requires new permissions, issues with spamming to consider and so on.

It is on our radar along with a long list of other developments we hope you'll like. We are always happy to hear of other ideas if and when you have them.

Kind regards
Nicola
