I wonder if anyone could assist me.  On a recent visit to Bressingham Gardens, Norfolk, I saw a beautiful Mahonia Aquiflorium Moseri.  I have searched several garden centres and no one can find me one of these.  Has anyone got any idea of where I might find one?  Bressingham Garden Centre lady said the specimen in the Gardens might be a trial.  Your suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Thanks sotongeoff.  I now have a black box with two blue option choices at the bottom.  However, when I move the mouse arrow down to the message option, as soon as it leaves the black part the whole thing disappears before I can click on the option - message.  !!!!!   I'll keep trying.  Thanks again.

Dear figrat - can you assist me?  I have right clicked on the word Italophile and on the icon beside Italophile but the only thing that comes up is a short synopsis about Italophile not 2 options - message and ignore.  What am i doing wrong or is my computer security too strong?

Dear Figrat - your contribution is most welcome and helpful especially as Italophile is trying to be so helpful.  I will try your suggestion tomorrow when I am a bit more lively.  Many thanks indeed.  Janie

Your interest and generous communication is a delight.  I am going to try your suggestions and have a go when I have read up on growing tomatoes.  I'll let you know if I have managed to locate any of those suggested.  Hope you weather is better than here at the moment. Happy growing. Janie

Dear Italophile.  Thank you for your offer of seed.  I have looked into sending my details via your very interesting blog site but I see it is via google and I am concerned at google security.  However, your sheer delight at talking tomatoes is so infectious and I have been enthused by your responses that I will strive to find tasty tom seed here in the UK.  I will enjoy going through your blog at my leisure and wish you well now and always. Janie

Dear Italophile - thank you for your reply.   I really think it would be worth me trying to grow the Cherokee Purple (and Brandywine though my tomato was not a beef tom) just to  taste a delicious flavour again and since you grow them and are so knowledgable about tomatoes, you would not grow the wrong tomato for yourself.   I will try and find some plants if it is not too late or have to wait till next season with seed.  I have learned so much from this forum.  Many thanks Janie

Good morning - I am indebted to Italophile and Bobthegardener for your recent discussions about my lost tomatos and am thrilled to read your observations.  To answer some of your queries - it was not a blackish tomato, it was quite reddish with lovely green shoulders.  From what I remember, it was a smoothish tom rather than a knobbly one but I might be wrong but what was so striking, was the flavour.  I have never tasted the like since.  We used to buy them on Grantham market every Saturday and the stall holder only sold tomatoes and there was a queue every week so you had to go early to get some!!   Italophile, if the second tomato picture has a magnificent flavour, I would say that you are on the right lines - the picture with three tomatoes shows the green stripes eminating from the centre of the tomato.  This is a feature I remember well.  Your assistance is much appriciated.   Janie
