I use a large-ish wide-bladed knife just as Pansyface does - it does the job quickly, efficiently and makes no extra washing up. 

Now then, now then....

Fascinating Verdun   Keep us informed.

As I've said before, Bressingham is close to where I used to live and it was frequently the venue for Sunday outings with the children - they loved Alan Bloom's steam engines and he was great with the children.  I enjoyed the gardens and nursery so everyone was happy (well, I didn't ask the then husband if he was happy but he seemed to enjoy it - sometimes we took his mum as well).

As I said, Alan was a great character and very much" hands on" in the nursery etc - but my memories of it are as not really the most orderly of places, so maybe something got overlooked or an error was made somewhere along the line ...

So pretty BL  

A local GC has large 'tree sized' ones like that lining their driveway at this time of year - very effective

I'll be driving home in the dark this evening after visiting a friend - I wonder how many illuminated gardens I'l see now that Advent has started

Puzzled.  Mike, are you saying that there is scientific evidence that acorns 'planted' by jays and squirrels grow into the best trees, and is this because they select the biggest and best acorns?

Does this evidence record all acorns planted by the birds/animals, or only the ones that germinated and grew?

Do humans not 'select'  the acorns that they plant? 

Or have I misunderstood your point?
