GWRS, Many thanks for the information,  I think our local village show organisers have a copy, so will borrow for next year.

Thanks Dovefromabove, I had wondered if coloured meant just potatoes like all red etc, so will have a go.  Rabbits are a sore subject at the moment, one got into my veg plot and ate a whole row of kale and parsley!  My cat caught it eventually and brought it in through the cat flap, so I was able to take it back to its own habitat. Phew.

I want to enter some Cara potatoes in our local show  which is judged by RHS judges. The schedule has classes for round white and round coloured, and I am stumped as to what class to choose, bearing in mind that Cara, although a white potato has pink eyes.  Please Help!

Many thanks Alan Clark2 and DimWit (surely not!).  I have once again Googled my plant and am sure it isn't Carex Variegata.  As for Gardener's Garters, it is very like the images I have looked at on the net, but it is this trailing habit that foxes me, However, for the time being it will be Gardener's Garters.  Thanks again, much appreciated.

  Can someone please tell me the name of this plant?  I grow it as a houseplant and want to know if it can be grown in the garden.  Hope you can see from the pic


that it grows in sections and when it is in full flood it trails and looks very graceful.  It is also very easy to take cuttings.  Any ideas?  Had difficulty in getting the photos on, but hope you can see ok.  Thanks.

Many thanks for all replies.  The book in question is Joy Larkom's "Grow your Own Vegetables" and I can now see what she means.  There is a list of definitions in the front, but all is lists is a - annual etc.  So, now I know, should have known this, hey ho.

I keep coming across this abbreviation in gardening books and can't find out what it means.  Even Google didn't help.  Can someone please put me out of my misery!

That's Monty done till March!

I have read somewhere that Monty Don will be taking over Chelsea coverage from Alan Tichmarsh  next year, and that Alan has declined to take a smaller part in the coverage.  Is this true, does any one know.  I would miss Alan's knowledge and presenting skills.

P.S.  I am in the Nigel fan club!  Could offer a couple of knobbly toads to the pet show.

Thank you so much for your advice, especially the reminder that each divided piece must have a stem. I wouldn't have done that!    I will leave them alone until spring and then tackle the division!
