Spiderus plasticus giganticus.

Comfrey. Can we juice it and drink it?

Posted: 15/01/2016 at 22:06

If you want a green smoothie, can I recommend Kale.

Comfrey caused an epidemic of liver failure in China when it was picked by mistake for another herb. It doesn't need a lot to cause damage.

Grow lights

The hydroponics people sell growlights. If you are prepared to have a big electrickery bill, they're fine. If you are growing for showing they are useful to extend the season. For normal folk who just grow their own to eat or admire, they're not useful.

How long does garden screening last?

I think you are mixing up rolls of dead willow screen with planted cuttings or fedges, Joseph. 

The bottom bit refers to maintenance of living willow cuttings, woven into structures.

Hard frost here. The grass was crunchy instead of squelchy when I fed the birds. The squirrels seem to think the back door closing is a dinner gong. They are there faster than the blackbirds, even though nowhere to be seen when I was out there.

I sow mine in an unheated greenhouse with a propagator lid on until they germinate. I dont give any extra bottom heat. They need some warmth but not a lot at this stage.

They don't need that sort of heat. Take them off the heat, but they will be soft now, you will need to protect from frost.  They will slow down and harden up a bit. I space my seed out in a deep polystyrene fish box, but if yours are close together in a shallow tray, pot them on, one to a 7cm pot. Keep in plenty of light. Unless you are growing for show, you don't need growlights.

Fantasy garden

Other papers have fantasy football, or fantasy portfolio. As we can't do much in our real gardens at this time of year, let us have a fantasy garden
