Belfast sinks and their true value?

Is a butler sink the same? This photo taken a couple of years ago - now is completely covered in echeverias, euphorbia myrsinites (at the back) and various forms of houseleek.  I don't water it and have gravel surrounding all the plants.

It stands on four coffee jar lids to keep it off the ground and I absolutely love it.  Didn't buy it, inherited it along with a smaller apothecary sink from my Auntie Lily.  I take the echeverias into the unheated greenhouse in the winter, but the rest stay put.

A Belfast sink has a weir-type overflow.  A Butler sink (sometimes called a London Butler sink) does not have an overflow.

Can I grow more raspberry canes from the seeds from my raspberries?

Cut them all down to ground level in February Boater - couldn't be simpler

This week overnight minimum temps here in central Norfolk have been over 15C and daytime maximums have been around 25C   It's fantastic - the tomato plants that have escaped the blight (fortunately the majority of them) are ripening like mad

However, I've never had to do so much watering in mid September - swings and roundabouts

I've always liked Gardener's Delight and grew some more this year.  However I was given some Sungold plants, and I must say the flavour of these little golden balls surpasses even GD - I'm eating them like sweets every time I go into the garden
