Same here - Ainsley's Hot & Sour = 66 kcals per mug

It's been blustery all day, but suddenly its getting really blustery and brilliant pink clouds are scudding across the sky - I've just heard from a friend up on the north Norfolk coast and it's looking stormy up there - I think we'd better batten our hatches down this evening.

Buttercup - if you want a natter pop onto the Hello Forkers thread - there's usually someone about for a chat

Something different

Looks like an advert to me too - all the company directors share the same surname as our Mr Anthony Lodge

Please Mr Lodge - we're not idiots so don't treat us as idiots - Gardener's World is a commercial enterprise dependent for it's income on advertising; consequently all advertising on the website has to be paid for - I'm sure that Maldon Shot Blasting doesn't provide its services for free, so don't expect Gardener's World to do so 

This will be reported to the Moderators as spam.

Doesn't seem to stop some people from wearing a kilt - I'm sure that some people just treat it as fancy dress!

However, OH has Scottish forefathers on his mother's side - think it would be a good investment for him to get himself kitted out with a kilt, jacket etc rather than keep buying/hiring suitable suits for weddings etc.   I think he'd look really good in a kilt

I wonder if Lidl are selling the right tartan

Native alternative?

Nice link obelixx - I wonder if the molinia I saw is the shorter form that they have, as it's certainly not as tall as the other one pictured!

Native alternative?

Have a look at the Purple Moor Grass, Molinia caerulea - it has lovely purplish seedheads - there's also a variegated form. 

If you're soil's slightly acid and on the damp side it would be great.


Can you help save my orange tree?

Scale will put the plant under stress so it is less able to cope with other things.  They should be selling plants in an optimum condition to cope with changing to a new environment.  They're trying to pull the wool over your eyes.  I'd still take it back.

But whatever you decide to do - good luck.

If I bought a tree which came complete with 30 scale insects I would take it back and demand a refund

Shall we pool our piggy banks?

Or shall we stick with our seed swap?
