If anyone wants to send some practical help to the youngsters who have this difficult hill to climb, and their parents and siblings, have a look at the CLIC Sargent website, one of the best charities I've ever come across.

If you're anything like me you'll make plans and change your mind half a dozen times between now and springtime

A lot of water plants die right back in the winter so you would get something that looks like a pot of mud. I would rather wait until spring when the plants are growing and you can see what you're getting. It's for this reason that many suppliers don't sell water plants in the winter.

I suspect that having seen the vilification heaped on a thoroughly capable and decent man like Obama, it's a position that has attracted only the most arrogant and egocentric.

Young Kale Plants

Posted: 04/11/2016 at 09:15

You don't eat the hard stems of kale!   You strip the leaves from the mid-rib.  We had curly kale for supper last night with our Irish stew - delicious.

Curly kale needs no protection from the weather, snow or no snow.  It survives anything the British weather can throw at it (that's why it's so popular with the pigeons  - when everything else has died, the kale stands tall on the allotment).

However, Curly kale seeds should have been sown in the spring and planted out to grow on ages ago.
