My elder is the wild sort and the leaves are much more advanced than that already.

How long have you got to be on the exclusion diet before you introduce the suspects one at a time?

The last exclusion diet I saw was similar but you were allowed pears and lamb, because apparently these don't cause allergies. Of course allergies and intolerance are not the same.

Living with someone who is severely allergic to brazil nuts is ok. I spend too long in the supermarket looking at labels, and it takes twice as long at Xmas. The only time he came a cropper was some baklava which were supposed to contain pistachios(which he can eat) but started his mouth swelling. He had an antihistamine, and I stood by with the epipen and an ambulance on speed dial.Fortunately the antihistamine kicked in fast.

gypsophila - can I get it to flower in May?

Posted: 02/04/2014 at 19:32

You might get a perennial sort like Gypsophila paniculata Bristol fairy to flower in late May if you have it in a greenhouse in a big pot, with some  heat on.
