No nut, your advice is too valuable for that

Yes Dove, it is.  Will remove suckers forthwith.  Do you know how long any cuttings take to grow, and would they need to be grafted to something else to get the lollipop shape?

Ha ha nut!  Yes it is - hadn't thought of that!

I have this pretty little willow tree.  It's about 5' high and has some leafy stems growing from near the base.  I wondered if these could be used for propagation, and if so, how?  How fast a grower is it?  I've only had mine four months.

Thanks again Heather.  I have also put up a new post that doesn't include the word 'polycarbonate', but so far no reaction!

What in your experience is the most versatile, easy to erect, draught free, convenient, well made etc. type?  Any pitfalls to watch out for?  Or particular extras to go for?  What kind of shelving is best?  What about ventilation?

Any advice would be most welcome!

Thanks Heather - what a kind thought!  I was just wondering about reposting and leaving out the word 'polycarbonate'!

Ah!  Perhaps you've put your finger on the underlying cause of the freakiness, obelixx!  I didn't know that you shouldn't put food enriched water into dry pots!

Thanks obelixx.  Would all purpose Liquid Miracle-Gro work as well, as I don't have any tomato food?
