Who are Golden Glove Productions? I found one theatre group, a company in America that deals with pop concerts and another that sells gloves, among other things. They don't sound very gardeny or BBC.

Comfrey. Can we juice it and drink it?

Edd, you may not be insane, but sometimes I think you're totally batty!

I love roses and their are often questions asked about them here. Please could we have some advice on how to care for different varieties, which are suitable to grow in pots, pruning for ramblers and climbers, when and how much to feed and water, diseases etc.

You could have a sections on people's gardens and design and another section on caring for individual plants.

Morning all, dull and grey but not raining.

The bush fires sound terrifying. I have a very good friend whose daughters live in Perth. I think that's not that far from Waroona where the fires are. My friend has gone off with her husband in their camping car to Italy.

Doubt I'll be gardening today. Still haven't taken down the Christmas decorations.

Ilex Crenata, that I mentioned above isn't prickly, it's leaves are a bit like box.

Good Morning Marion.

Plant stall must be difficult as Easter is so early this year.

Dordogne must be colder than Scotland in winter, except this winter, so far. It can be regularly -7 to -10 some years. My small leaved ones died too.

South Africa, just in case anyone wonders

I told my OH about your OH, DD and he laughed, thought you OH's comments about the dark and the water were funny. Men are funny sometimes, some of them post on here. Perhaps I better get my coat this time

Bedtime. Night all.

The Holly can be kept to 2 foot which is 60cm. 30cm is quite tiny, even my dwarf lavender is taller than that. Perhaps Sam's veg garden should be edged with herbs like thyme or summer bedding that is edible and pretty like French Marigolds, Calendula or Nasturtiums that can be sown from seed each year.
