Jean perlite is just an expensive substitute for grit, much lighter of course which some prefer. I found that even mixed into the compost once used as a mulch it separated and lay on top of the soil like snow, I use half grit and half compost for cuttings and never cover them.
Flobear, my Grandson starts the big school today in his new uniform, my Daughter had instructions. "do not pick me up in front of the school, do not get out of the car and hug me or hold my hand, and if you try to kiss me I am off" I guess he feels grown up then. That is the one who won the last night at the old school dancing competition in Modern, Latin and also the disco, His partner takes lessons and picked him to dance with although he does not go to lessons. I was the same age when I started dancing and always picked the best dancer, looks did not come into it.
Gary, variety is the spice of life, if we all had the same gardens it would be bordom on a grand scale, I love shades of green they should write a song about it.
