I've had limited success with Pistachio nut shells, they don't like the salt. But my waistline doesn't like the volume needed.

Are French Marigolds still in 'Vogue'?

Don't really like them, but buy a few to put in GH to camouflage smell of tomatoes so less aphids.

I think there are nicer things to grow for insects etc. I find it invasive, just look how many you see growing in nooks and cranies on streets. When we moved here 14yrs ago it was everywhere. As Bob says the roots do smell. Before I knew what it was we called it "stinky root plant".

Lily & thank you, I might change my avatar. I can be very very scary.

Just had a few flurries of white stuff, it's 5C so doubt it will settle anywhere.

Stacey time for existing on 500 cals isn't when you are feeling ill. It isn't like you've scoffed cake for brekkie. Eat what you need to fuel your body and get well. You won't be able to go puddle jumping with Lo if you are really, really poorly. That's from Auntie KEF!   Can't find a hands on hips bossy smiley type thing.
