Seems like a honeymoon isle, Lily.

Messed with your sunset a little.

Pleased you had a good time, Lily and well done your OH ....btw, the red spot on your sunset is a reflection. It usually happens with these shots, but I'll not bore you with camera settings & filters.

I would say the if it bares Arthur Bowers name it will need to meet their formula & specification...so I would say it represents an excellent buy.

Maybe we should bear in mind that season for selling compost has peaked and therefore, stockists will be seeking to offload stocks.

Not sure about washing-up liquid, soft soap (still widely available) has been the preferred option of gardeners for many, many years.

A very useful and effective & organic  bug spray can be made from rhubarb leaves, making use of the poison 'oxalic acid' contained within the leaves.

Sorry about that, horseygirl.....I'm perhaps not as keen as I used to be, but I still dig about 18 inches deep & break-up the subsoil for mine.

Butlers sink? Save that for the sempervivums.

Anyone remember the Beeb's 'Victorian Kitchen Garden' (still available on DVD) with head gardener Harry Dodson and co-presenter *Peter Thoday? A wonderful series, inclusive of an insight into how the Victorians grew pineapples  on hot-beds.

*Peter Thoday is a horticultural historian who went on to be head horticulturist at The Eden Project.
