A qestion about brocholi , we cut some from the main stem last week but lest the stork still in the soil and yesterday we notice there where small broccoli growing from the stem , wondered if anybody out there had experienced this ? Hopes that makes sense 


Sorry, didn't see this earlier - yes that's what broccoli does - you take the top shoot out and it stimulates lots of side shoots - when you harvest them even more will grow - it'll go on like this for quite some time

Sycamore - pull it out (see my post on your Newbie thread )

Newbie alert!

Noooooooooo!  not a sycamore - you'll never be happy with it - even if you can keep it short without making it look ugly, the leaves will get sooty mould on and go black - dig it out and get something you really like and will suit your garden

I'm not bossy, honest!

Well done Wonky - I'd better get myself smartened up a bit then - you don't want me picking you up from the station in my jimjams

PatE - Bressingham Gardens were created by the late Alan Bloom, a famous plantsman and gardener who 'invented' island beds - his garden is The Dell Garden - the neighbouring Foggy Bottom is his son Adrian Bloom's garden - he is also a famous gardener, plantsman and writer - have a look here

Alan Bloom was quite a character and also a steam engine enthusiast, and his collection of steam trains and vintage fairground rides will be running today too.
