Help for flooded gardens

If May won't work, June will do perhaps. When I started my garden, it was in early July 2001; it still worked for that season

Let's keep planting and taking cuttings.

Give my love to the people on the Somerset message board Rosie; the reason I came up with this idea was that I know how utterly desperate I would feel if my garden was destroyed. Please assure them that though our efforts may be clumsy, we will try to provide them with a large selection of plants in the early summer or when their gardens are ready to accept them

Dove, I've been growing celery for the last couple of years and found the flavour of home grown almost eye-wateringly strong, but v. useful in cooking. I just don't have the space for both veg so growing celeriac gives me, I hope, the best of both worlds.

I'm growing celeriac for the first time this year as I love making celeriac remoulade. Seeing the photos in the 'how to do it' article makes me wonder; can one eat the leaves also as if it were celery?

Dove, Peter Grimes is one of my most favourite operas, how lovely to see it on the beach it must have made it very special But my absolute favourite has to be Fidelio; when the prisoners come out singing, it is so heartbreaking and could be political prisoners nowadays in so many countries.
