Good morning all from a stalking forker,
Hope everyone is okay. I do try to keep up with you all even though I don't post very often.
I decided to join the local garden club even though I'm not too much of a joiner. They had a talk by one of the owners of Fentongollen flower farm. They have hundreds of areas of daffodils also sheep, cereals and also raise cauliflower plants that they sell on to other farmers. He said every cauli that we bought in a supermarket was probably started on his farm. The special hybrid seeds are bought from Tailand and cost £27 for a thousand. The seeds we buy wouldn't give the results that the supermarkets demand that's why the seed is so expensive.
I looked on their website and a bunch of daffs cost over £15 by post.
An interesting talk all the same. The next meeting has a speaker talking about Heligan so I'll look forward to that.
Hope your rats are sorted Flo. My four chickens lost their husband to a fox about five weeks ago and still seem nervous. I think animals do form relationships with each other and miss them when they are gone.
