Sweet Pea, you could ask the Agency if the landlord wants to let the place for a long time or just for a year or 2. Obviously, even if he says a long time, something may change in his situation, but it is best to know his intentions. I hope all goes well for you, like FG I have been on both sides of the fence; was a tenant until I was nearly 53.

David Spikes, I agree about Box; to me it smells of Tom Cats, but no one else seems to be able to smell it

I heard this on Radio 3 today; a prim 1950's mother, when asked by her small daughter 'What is normal?' 'It's a setting on the washing machine'

Plant with pretty pink flowers

I have a white version, which flowers now when other flowers are about to give up the ghost. It is planted in poor soil next to a little conifer and has only spread about 6" in 3 years. But I'm keeping an eye on it

That's a lovely idea KEF.

Did I review 1500 plants in my sleep?

The answer is Dandelion!...and why can't weeds have reviews too?

What a great idea. I agree about a GC donating compost/growing medium. Newspaper pots are also brilliant. Sadly my sunflowers are over and composted. Is there anything else we can do to help?

Good News for Mike

So, here goes; my first plant review.

I am a tremendous admirer of this plant, it's survival instincts are certainly better than human kind's. It's perky little flowers speak to me in a particularly poignant fashion. It's lush greenery is a great addition to a salad and it's roots were used, I believe, as a coffee substitute in the 2nd World War.

So what is it?
