Good morning all     G'day Pat

Get well soon Pdoc and Yvie and Panda and anyone else feeling poorly or bruised. 

Pdoc, that's 'cos you went to see the doctor ... you must've caught the bug from someone in the waiting room.

It is - enjoy

Plant it a bit deeper than it was in the pot. It doesn't matter if the bottom couple of inches of the leaves get buried.

Cut the flower spike off and plant it in the garden in a spot that gets the spring sunshine.  Give it a bit of fertiliser and leave it alone this year, it'll die down over the summer so don't forget it's there.  Next spring it'll bloom again, not quite as impressive as in it's first year but still a pretty sight

I'm 20 years younger than you CJWP, but I started gardening with my granny's old gardening book so have lots of out of date information clogging my brain up

Philippa   I have it on good authority that Pdoc is having a beautiful huge Perspex dome erected over the whole area to keep the wind and rain out, there will be rainbows and twinkling stars and shimmering waterfalls  and a beautiful glowing moon - you won't have to experience Yorkshire winter weather

And don't worry, you'll get picked up by the Tardis - it knows its way around

There used to be two sorts of cauliflower - the summer cauliflower which is a cauliflower, and the winter cauliflower which was more of a broccoli in it's breeding.

Things have changed and although we still have summer and winter varieties, the winter ones now look more like a cauliflower than they used to ......... if that makes sense
