OK - G&Ts all round  ............................. rhubarb crumble's all gone now - latecomers will have to beg for chocolate crumbs from Philippa 

It's been a lovely day

....  Sorry...........this is nothing to do with gardening....other than the Mint and Chillies..............

It's a long established fact that gardeners also talk about cake, rhubarb crumble, donuts, cheese scones, wine, beer and ...................... chocolate

G&T being poured .............. rhubarb crumble and custard is ready -  form an orderly queue ................

It is deliciously sweet - really very good indeed - and we've not started on the crumble yet - but we might need some for a niblet before bedtime

I'm not desperately keen on coconut Philippa, but I love dark chocolate and marzipan  

The almond ones sound fab -  I don't have a Nut allergy - well, not unless she's in a really bad mood

Go on Duncan, have one of each - grow a proper fruiting quince in a huge pot, and a chaenomoles up against a wall or a fence 

This wonderful nursery to whom I am not related in any way, are really helpful and will answer queries by email, so I suggest you ask them about buying and growing a quince in a pot. 

No need for moss killer.

Philippa  - you've totally redeemed any earlier faux pas with your last sentence - but we'll like you even more when we've tested the chocolates!!!

Hi Pauline

Are you thinking of growing something the street-side of the hedge or the side facing your home?

Which way does the house face and what sort of soil do you have in the garden.  Also, how high is the hedge?
