I'd go with Cyperus too............mine live in the pond all year round and provide cover for frogs and newts

What's the star in your garden right now

OL.......I find the Dendrobiums one of the easiest to grow.  I've had the white for years and this year bought a pink one...........look good together and the scent is fantastic of course

Ouse.........of course, forgetting where you live.......I get used to seeing polythened error...........but I still like that Campsis

Artjac........your Campsis looks absolutely lovely.  I can never enlarge any pics on here but in this particular instance, it is a bonus rather than a pain as you appear to be living alongside the Amazon River ........maybe polythened crops in reality ?  but I prefer my interpretation

GD............for someone who doesn't like thinking you aren't doing too badly

Best flavour cherry tomatoes ?

Posted: Yesterday at 18:41

Daisy........Black Cherry are also really well flavoured.......I find they are just a little bit later than Sungold but also slightly larger.....which makes the extra wait worthwhile.

I don't know about the "Tomato Growing" website but reduced strength more often doesn't sound much use to me.  Could be wrong but if you are after flavour, then too much TLC often results in disappointment IMO.
