Lovely cakes Marion, I have finished mine now, marzipan and icing. I have now taken a piece of paper and pen to bed so I can jot things down when I wake up, must write note to finish mulching dahlias in case of frost, our weather is much like yours I think Marion, what we call 'hanging) just damp, mild and mucky.

Just reading through here, Philippa, I didnt see before that you wanted the cabbage seeds, is it too late now, I looked through my pm's and didnt see your address. You can sow these in the Summer for Autumn plant out. They were a fantastic crop, started in March with picking as Spring greens then right through the summer. I have loads in the freezer too.

If you still want them you are most welcome.
