What is this?

Euphorbia lathyris - caper spurge

They often pop up unannounced.  Beware of the milky sap - if it gets on on your skin it can cause extreme photo-sensitivity and cause swelling and rashes in sunlight.

Has any one made a gardening cake before

I used to make special one-off novelty cakes for customers - found that Madeira cake was the best base for them - it's that little bit firmer.

That's eleven jars of raspberry jam made and still two containers full iof raspberries n the freezer so we can have some with a special pud at C*mas

Well rotted manure which has been incorporated into the soil in the previous year is fine for root veg, but fresh manure will cause root veg such as carots and parsnips to fork.

Digging up daffodil bulbs to replant

Plant them - if the growing tip is intact they'll survive although they may not flower as well as they would have.

Try digging up with fork rather than spade and also keep fingers crossed

..............  It looks as tho I might now be able to quote the text I want to using the recommended 'formula' - but it was also putting my own comments about the quote in the quote box.
Any ideas why what I'm doing wrong please?

Once you've got the Quote where you want it, make sure you move your cursor so that it's at the left hand margin of the box where you type - you'll see that the Quote is indented a bit

If you want to edit the quote e.g. delete a bit of it , I find it best to do that after you've typed whatever you're going to say.
