Don't think so WO   But people only know what they know - they don't know what it is they don't know - and there's loads of bandwagons out there charging around banging drums - people are quite understandably concerned when they read some stuff that I've seen - I'm not a fan of Monsanto - but I think one has to look for empirical evidence rather than take notice of scaremongering - and throwaway remarks about supermarkets contaminating soil have to be challenged or we could have the gardening equivalent of what happened when The War of the Worlds was first broadcast - the internet has huge potential for such things!

Good morning KEF and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!    Have you got his bank card to take to the GC today?

Check your PMs

Even a micro pond helps!

For a mini pond it's perfectly possible to collect enough rainwater - if you don't have a water butt (and why not?) then just leave a couple of buckets or bowls out - it shouldn't take long to collect enough rainwater during February Fill-dyke. 

Then get a jamjar and string and gather a jar of water from a nearby pond - it'll act as a 'starter' and although there may only be a very few mini-beasts in there they'll soon multiply.

Anyone a winner?

.... I thought: "Supermarket...I wouldn't put it past them if these are modified and could contaminate the soil if planted out". ...

Good morning all   I woke this morning coughing, sneezing and with a totally bunged up head!!!  Where did that come from???

Pdoc - it may well be worth getting a second opinion - good luck - cars are money pits

Hope everyone's going to have a really good day

Yes, it's illegal to dig up wild flowers. 

This may be helpful as it explains the legal bits

Hello folks I've spent an afternoon with paperwork and knitting, now we've had supper and we're both on the sofa with our feet up - I'm the one with my eyes open

Hostafan - I'm glad you're getting that knee properly investigated - good luck
