The rooted box cuttings I planted 18-20 years ago have almost reached 6' where not clipped. In that time hawthorn,spindle, laurel, hazel and many others are twice or three times that height.

I like a mix with the emphasis on hawthorn. A lot of our early tree and shrub plantings came fom Buckingham Nurseries

comphrey smells worse.

 Symphytum officinale is the one you want to grow but don't let it seed or it will be everywhere. Chiltern seeds sell it.

We'll see if we can find some treatment for your ear affliction - sounds painful 


My dad used to tell me that if I swallowed cherry stones I'd get a cherry tree coming out of my ear. Does that happen with cucmbers as well? He didn't mention those

If you enjoy growing things from seed have a go.  It won't be Yolande but it could be nice. Only the species tulips reproduce to what you started off with.

Yes.Martin, take the top off, split it up, tear it apart, do as Adam suggests with some of it and leave some outside in a pot for next year. You can be rough with it, all those roots will grow.

I'd cut that back Martin, it's over for this year. A bit more room for expansion next year as well, a deeper pot for just the mint.


You could try potting up some root and bringing it indoors, nothing to lose. I've never done that so I don't know it it works. Leave some in a pot outside for next year though, it will be back

I like the refections on that container. Is it stainless steel?

It dies back in winter, you can repot some roots and all will be well
