doesn't seem that long ago the Chelsea flower show, comes around so quickly, you will be dashing off again to show all the wonderful herbs you grow, wish you luck hope there is another gold for all your efforts.
Could you advise me whether there is a herb which I could use in an infusion perhaps, to help the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis? Also something to minimise the effects of stress as I find the condition is aggravated by it. Thanks, and good luck for Chelsea - your stands are stunning at GWL, I haven't been to Chelsea - too busy getting stressed at work!

I have and old butler sink in my garden (shallow type)which I hope is suitable for growing Thymes. I have lined the bottom with gravel as a start and would love some recommendations as to what varieties to look for. I get a lot of slug damage in the area am I right in thinking they would leave Thymes alone? Thanks
I have always loved nasturtiums, starting with the fact that I could eat them as a young child and moving into their delightful, peppery taste as an accent in salads as an adult. And now, I love nasturtium vinegar!

I sowed some poppy seeds from a packet of cooking poppy seeds from Julian Graves as I wanted to harvest some that I was certain would be edible. To my surprise they have germinated en mass. ( I thought they would probably have been heat treated.) Some other poppies (self seeded) have appeared in another separate bed. What type are edible? I have looked on internet but keep getting answers from US where it appears it is illegal to grow poppies at all ( except for californian or welsh poppies). These sites also say that poppy seeds are toxic except for specially grown " for food " varieties grown under licence. Is this just to stop people growing opium poppies or is it true?. What is the legal position in the UK?
