Don't think you've any cause to beat yourself up over not double-digging Mr Toast - I think what you've done so far has been quite remarkable - give yourself a pat on the back and a pint or three
No need to apologise newbe - the person who never made a mistake never made anything
The best hand cream I've ever used was the lanolin-based udder cream I used to apply to the udders of my herd of dairy goats - it kept them, and my hands, silky smooth
But many of the plants we keep as exotic houseplants in the UK are quite common plants in warmer climates - I think you said you're in Singapore?
Yes, I've chewed honeycomb - we used to spread honey including some of the comb onto toast for tea
No they won't come back - you can take the comb out now and get back to composting
No, I've not seen that before. I've just been through one of my houseplant books and can't find it there either
Definitely a sempervivum. I think they'll all flower given the right conditions.
Think I've found a picture in one of my houseplant books which has confirmed Nutcutlet's suggestion - there is a picture of a Codiaeum 'Madame Mayne' which is as near as dammit to Mel's photograph. Sadly I can't find a picture online.
Where I worked until recently we had several silver birches in the grounds and gardens. Every summer some of the leaves would turn yellow and fall - our cars would be covered with them on wet and windy days - however the birches seemed perfectly healthy and have carried on doing it year after year. I wouldn't be worried about it. It may be the result of some fungal spores in the air, but they didn't seem to infect anything else around them.
