Why not go and take some of the orange seed? Sow them now and they germinate in Spring. I have a hedge of them grown from seed like that. We even got an album form too.

I enjoyed reading all the Anna Pavord books, especially The Tulip.

There are not many witers now of Christopher Lloyd.'s type, sadly. And at least he WAS writing from his own experiience.

My son usually buys me a gardening/plant book for Christmas, but this year and last I struggled to find one that was not best described as a 'coffee table' book. Where are the good modern writers?

Which one is it? Many of them are deciduous so the leaves should be falling off about now.
