And then there are biennials which tend to flower in the second year and then die off, hopefully having self seeded first. I believe that some foxgloves are an example of this.

Fertilising the Veg Garden

philippa; in my area we all have septic tanks; we get them emptied once a year or so. Apparently the company that empties them then puts the waste on the fields. I have been told that this is permitted; not certain if that is true. We also sometimes have huge piles of grey 'dust' at the edges of the fields; this apparently is processed sewerage from London.

As long as the veg are well washed, I don't see that there would be a problem. Though personally I think my neighbours might object.

I'm singing with the choir in Church that Sunday; we are a tiny choir, so it isn't fair to let them down. I get out of church at 11.15 ish. Is that too late?
