Thanks, so can any company put the John Innes name to their compost, assuming the mixture is correct?


Yes, John Innes is a formula rather than a brand name i.e. you can buy Arthur Bowers, John Innes compost.

Could someone please explain to me how John Innes gets its name?

The composts were developed at the John Innes Institute, named after one John Innes, a nineteenth century property and land dealer in the City of London.

 On the subject of flowers on a black background, this is the stunning effect that can be achieved with a simple bunch of tulips.

I didn't take this particular shot.

Since starting this thread I've picked-up on this 'tweet' he has made.

"Despite water stretching from the back door as far as the eye can see, it does look wonderful. Suddenly living in a borrowed lake."

Anyone have any news about Monty's Herefordshire garden?

I know it is subject to flooding at the best of times, so goodness knows how things are at present.

He 'tweets' quite a lot, so I thought he may have mentioned it.
