I'd never heard of them, so had a look on Google, rather striking. But Van Meuwen sells them and some people on this forum have been disappointed with them, I don't know about their roses though. I like David Austin roses, smell good and fairly disease resistant. I have a Madame Alfred Carrière climber which I planted in 1992, repeat flowerer, lovely, but almost white. I thought you wanted colour.

For stripping, just the niblets, I half cook the cobs, then strip them, freeze in bags, then cook them a very short time in a little water or butter. They've been OK, definitely not sloppy. I usually freeze them whole though, but it takes up space.

What do you mean "lost them" Alan? I use both those sorts of bags, so long as the air is kept out they should be OK.

My 11 yr old Border Collie has bad breath. The vet says he is fine for his age but his teeth are a bit dirty as he has an overbite and finds it hard to chew. But the vet said cleaning them would be expensive because of the blood tests and the general anaesthetic and the anaesthetic is not without risk. He said it wasn't worth it.

Some varieties of holly have smooth edges anyway. Don't cut the branches for that, cut the bush to keep it the shape you want.

That's what I do, but with butter, like your OH.
