Clarington, i have the same problem, except his tipple is red wine!!!! Love the program, just dont like the time it comes on as I have to rush home from work and get dogs fed and walked by 7. Glad to see the stumperies, I had a go myself with a few gnarled pieces of wood and a few ferns in my wooded area, its very effective.

I have had great success with Wilco seeds, had a few good bulbs from Poundland

though not quite as reliable, still for a quid what do you expect!!!

I grew mine from seed and used tall yogurt pots to grow them in. When they reached about 8" I transplanted them. Seemed to work well. Good luck.


New to pickling and making chutney and would welcome some advice

I make mini hampers for Christmas pressies with selection of jams and chutneys.

just get a shallow basket and line with straw, place jars on top and wrap with clear cellophane and decorate with ribbon etc. makes a great gift.

Made a batch of rosehip syrup too this year, absolutely delicious on yogurt or ice cream so will be giving these away too.
