But wait there's more...

Hot on the heels of the internal messaging we have even more folia goodness to share with you.

Wish List
So you stumble across a nice looking plant, like say Herb's Brahmi and you think to yourself "Hey, that would look good in my kitchen garden too! I'll just click on the Add to my wish list link and choose my kitchen garden and bam! There it is." 
So apart from the theatrics, we've hopefully made it pretty easy for you. Obviously with everything else on the site, it's our first draft so any feedback and suggestions is most welcome.

And now for some good news.... groups

Groups are here! This is going to be the start of something big and we'll be adding to it over the coming weeks so have a look and tell us what you think.

Also after the roll out of buddies we've also enhanced the latest activity page - so you can now follow the going ons of your gardening buddies.

As for the server issues over the last week. Our hosting provider has informed us that they have fixed the issues and the server should be coming up to speed again. We're sorry about the disruption.

Site Hiccups

It looks like our hosting provider is fixing a latency issue with web and emails, which is drastically affecting the speed of the site as well as the odd error message when posting.

We have a beta queue!

We have some people now waiting very patiently on our invite list (oooh look at us! we have a waiting list now!) so we thought we should give you a bit of a rundown of this weeks plan:

This week we are aiming to go live with a version of the site that includes some interesting goodies that we wanted the next round of testers to come in with fresh eyes for. So we are holding back the invites until we get the new version up and stable - this should (hopefully) be around Thursday-ish.

We send out an invite email when we turn the beta accounts on, so you should know when you can login and begin testing...if you don't get an invite by the end of the week, drop us a note and we'll sort it out for you :)

We have a nice little update for today.... Searching! We're rolling this gem out little by little and seeing how it will work on the site. So you should now find a search box on the plants and people pages as well as the forum.

So let us know what you think!
