No,my other half took the photo in Cocos (keeling) island , indian Ocean. we were 25metre down. The best aquarium in the world.  The cleaner shrimps will clean, finger nails, pedicure bare feet, and if you open your mouth and take the regulator out, they will clean teeth.

This is the bit I took.

If you look at the main page of gardeners world .com there is a bit on "what to  do now" this changes week by week.

You can sow broad beans and peas now outside, and salad leaves in the greenhouse.

What to do with a Datura

Posted: 25/10/2013 at 19:01

Assuming it is the perennial brugmansia formerly called  datura,keep it  frost free and on the dry side. Cut it down to about a foot in spring, water and feed regularly with tomato food.  I cut branches off and stand in a coffee jar of water in the kitchen window. When they have  made plenty of white roots, I pot them up for new plants.
