Portuguese Laurel

I love it and am a bit envious ... a gorgeous shady place beneath it for mosses and ferns and other shade lovers ... Magical ... A bit Magic Faraway Tree   I think it just needs regular maintenance.

If I remember correctly the OP is researching the difference between gardening cultures in  the UK and Russia. I know a Russian who trained recently as a garden designer ... She said that the concept was virtually unknown to many Russians but there is now a bit of a boom in leisure gardening.

I am fed up with the media going on witch hunts and this just feels like another one 

See original post

 I agree Lily P ......... since when did the UK press hold the moral high ground?

I'm not religious, but the instruction 'Let him who is without sin cast the first stone' springs to mind

... I've no time for people who evade tax - avoidance is slightly different, and if you can legally pay a bit less, I can't see that many people wouldn't do that. 


 I agree Fairy ... if it's legal then leave them alone or change the law.  If people feel comfortable with  doing stuff that is legal then that's up to them.  Some people may not feel comfortable with doing it and that's up to them also.

Once the media start ganging up against people because of their perceived morals or lack of them we're on a very slippery slope ...  has no one read George Orwell?

Did the gardening help you to lose weight?
