HELLO FORKERS!

Plenty left Panda - help yourself -  it's a Lemon Drizzle traybake, so proportionately more topping to cake - a big success

Supper anyone?  Spicey lamb cutlets, couscous with sundried tomatoes, chickpeas and Moroccan preserved lemons, and a big bowl of Baba Ghanoush ...

I'd have expected them to be green and white striped

Thanks for your help I will be watching for the slugs I am constantly at war with them!!

 

When my delphiniums start peeking through the soil in spring I surround them with a substantial circle of coarse sand - while it doesn't keep all the slugs off it definitely helps

How long does Roundup last in the soil?

It all depends whose research you read - TestBiotech claim to be independent, but have strong connections with Greenpeace who, whilst I have a great deal of respect for much of what they do, can hardly claim to be a disinterested party.

I'd be interested to read of any research done by the John Innes Centre into harmful residues of glyphosate in food, if anyone knows of any?

How else would we recognise him?   I've always pictured him just like that

At a guess it's the higher light intensity that produces the darker colour.

He hasn't had one again.  Whatever it was it came on really suddenly and totally incapacitated him.  We were staying at a friend's home in Cambridge - a really awful night.

The medics swore it couldn't have been the jab that made OH so poorly, but he's ever been ill like that before or since - it was such a shame as it was the Opening of his show at Kettle's Yard and he couldn't attend.

I don't know the variety in question, but from what I can find out it seems to be just a colour variant of the Hyacinth orientalis usually grown for spring bedding or pots and as such it should be perfectly hardy in the UK.
