Yup. My favourite place in the world. I've got 2 and a cold frame all snuggled together. Bloke electrified them last year which makes them even better!

Sounds interesting. Can you give more detail on the 'large transplants' bit?

I think that cilantro is the one for leaves. Just another question...were you able to grow for leaf in France previously, or have you relocated!

Have read about it, Alys Fowler I think. If I were to start over with a garden I'd certainly consider it.

What's the weather like in your area?

Overcast here in S Devon. Rain forecast for later, which the garden will appreciate. Lots of silly Jubilee stuff going on in town, so off for a wander.

Glad you're back Frank!

Left the roots in after clearing last year's crop, they've survived the winter and putting up new growth.
