I'm not sure if it's available on the open market - it may only be available to commercial growers in bulk quantities.

.....seeing the glass half full instead of half empty makes a big difference.

Absolutely right Verdun - it's what makes life bearable .... sometimes even enjoyable

My brother is one of those farmers - there are many different maincrop carrot varieties grown commercially, depending on the requirements of the supermarkets with whom the farmer has a contract. 

One of the most commonly grown commercial maincrop carrot varieties is Imperator.

Thanks Marygold..

 

Re the Linseed, I used to add this to chicken feed  as it helps regrow feathers after a moujt.. But do garden birds moult??

Yes, they moult just as other birds do.  If they didn't their feathers would deteriorate and they would suffer from cold and wet and they would become ill and die. 

Interesting info here http://www.garden-birds.co.uk/information/moulting.htm

fig tree

We've got a little fig tree - we're growing it so we can have warm figs with honey and yoghurt for breakfast and training it up and over to shade the terrace ... sounds like you and I should swap houses

Soft fruit

You grow them in the same way as summer fruiting raspberries, so you cut the old canes down and tie in the new ones each year, which keeps them more or less under control.
