When are we going to see a picture of kits?

Becks I hav a recipe for play dough, lot cheaper than buying it and can make it colour of Jess choice. You can also slow bake it to 'save' special things. It is quite safe, probably more so than the bought stuff. If you would like I can post the recipe (cheap to)

Can't believe you can't grow roses. You just have to choose the right varieties for where you live.

Favourite flower this year has been lily 'Black Knight' unfortunately the lily beetles thought that as well so may not have any next year. Next year it will change I'm sure.

Favourite veg -not very experienced here - I guess lovely yellow courgette 'Floridor' 

Best runner bean

I grew White Lady, in past and is supposed to be good in dry summers which it was. I found the crop this year not so good, but will grow it next year as the seeds last more than 2 years, and it may have been planting medium this year.
