Chilli seeds

The basic Cayenne are reliable - if you remove the seeds when you come to use them, they aren't too hot ( tho "hot" is always a matter of personal taste ).  They dry well and last for ages.

Mr. Farage has been an MEP for a number of years and has made quite a successful living from his position.  Just the expenses alone which can be claimed from what has become known as the EU Gravy Train makes it quite a good living.


I would have no objections ( well, I'd have fewer objections I suppose ), if he had ever had any intentions of trying to alter the EU for the betterment of all EU citizens from the inside.  How can he truthfully say the EU is such a bad thing when he takes advantage of it so blatantly ?  Either be an MEP and attempt to do something good or back off.  His hypocracy is really quite mind blowing.


I have to be honest and confess I am not even sure whether he is still UKIP leader/ part of UKIP or what - an advisor to the US now perhaps ??  Also wonder whether it really matters ?  His promises in the Brexit  "debate" are perhaps just as worthy as Mr. Trump's promises - just so much hot air .


For all those people who voted for Mr.T because he wasn't a politician ?  He became a Politician the minute he stepped into the White House for his meeting with Obama.

Just thought I'd slip this in before Nora is about 


I know at least some of you will be missing "Cheap Kitchens", "Vertical and/or Aquaponic gardens", Welsh/Scottish Dressers" etc.


I have Neighbours and a Heron going cheap - both can be collected asap by any interested parties.  Both fully guaranteed - Neighbours to be a PITA and Heron to be persistent.


Feel free to use this thread to advertise your own stuff -the only criteria is that it has to be cheap and fairly useless

Depends where you are Elvis......it is quite normal for mature outside Fatsia to start losing some leaves now - they turn yellow and leathery and drop

Citrus rarely make good house plants - too drying an atmosphere.  Put outside for the best part of the year is the way to go.  They will take a certain amount of frost but prolonged freezing can see them cut right back and risk the loss of the plant completely.  If possible, a cold G/H is the best place for them over the cold months rather than in a warm house.


Specialist Citrus feed is available as Pete says above - usually one for winter and one for summer.

Garlic disease?

You often find exactly the same markings on shop bought garlic - it isn't a problem .  Do as Dave says and plant now.
