Sorry chaps, my mistake. Should have written "Quod erat demonstrandum." in that your recent posts have confirmed Digger's rightful observations. 

Mr Daniel Haymes must be very proud of you all.

God bless you

Digger, you are 100 percent correct. That's why I, and some colleagues, no longer bother with horticultural questions or observations.

When, in the fifties , I was employed on a farm in France as a number 6 garden assistant. I was put in charge of the Tomatoes in a prehistoric glass house.

The " Madame" who consider all English people to be " a carbuncle on the backside of humanity" used to rebuke me for growing what she called  " cat faced rubbish."

i did try to prove that they tasted better ( which they most certainly did) than her favoured Marmande types. But she would not have it. So I had to catch the next Garry back to Newhaven. Tant pis!

  • Provided it was pertinent, concise, not more than two paras nor  more than two years out of date, it could be worthy of consideration.


Dare I say.
