 Verdun and I have disagreed before - we may even disagree again   but we've always shaken hands and remained friends ((hugs))   Life's too short to hold a grudge when there's such good friendship to be had

And the suckers will be your plants for the following years - if you take them all out you'll have little fruit in the future

Anybody feeling chatty?

Like the Desert Island Discs programme - but with plants

Which eight plants would you choose for your Paradise Island - all things being equal - take it as read that you have perfect growing conditions - and they don't have to be practical edible plants either, unless you want them to be.

And as with the radio programme, you can choose one book to take with you too...
