That worries me - the fact that it's possible to buy things by accident

And not all high street clothing is made in terrible workshops - if you're a responsible person you have to do your research and if a retailer doesn't adhere to reasonable standards you have to hold them to account

I've bumped your earlier thread up for you

And yes, the newts and frogs will find your pond ... when we were in an inner city terrace in the middle of Student Land, frogs found the tiny pond we made, within a few weeks

Obelixx - the real Possum will re-emerge - take no notice of her behaviour, continue to treat her as the lovely person she really is and it will happen ..... eventually

Oh certainly I agree  Chris, don't let them dry out ... I just watch out for the leaves to just begin to get soft and then the pots get a good soaking. 

Out of 20+ pots of outdoor toms last year I had two fruits with BER early on ... and I'm still using frozen tomato sauce for pasta etc from last year's harvest

They grow wild in a meadow near my old home - they are exquisite - if I had some there's no way I'd give them away, no matter how much I loved my wedding guests
