I have just looked on Thompson and Morgan website and they have large discounts if you want 20 tubers.

Ornamental grasses

Posted: 03/07/2013 at 21:53

Hello, I have an enormous amount of bronze grass...it self seeds everywhere so I pick it out of cracks in my paving and pot it up until it's bigger. I love it. I am hoping to get some 'Karl Foerster' grass. Actually I have a question; I would like to grow it as a screen and would like to know how much it would spread in its width?

Thanks

Is there anything better and more delicious than a homegrown radish? Discuss!

If I have a headache then I eat a couple of the leaves, they do taste awful but it does seem to help.

A miracle, well I think so.

jam maker

Posted: 28/06/2013 at 10:35

I have never heard of an electric jam maker, but it is so easy and quite quick to do and such a labour of love.

I am no expert and only do a few pots a year so someone may give much better advice

I simmer fruit, but not for too long as I like chunky jam, add same weight of normal granulated sugar and juice of a lemon. Sometimes if I am feeling posh I use preserving sugar. Simmer and stir gently until sugar not crunchy under wooden spoon and then blast with heat and boil. When it passes the finger test its done and avoiding third degree burns pour into clean jars. 

Finger test...put blob of jam onto cold plate and push with finger, after blowing on it, if it wrinkles its done. 

 

Apologies if I have insulted your intelligence with the above, but that is how I do jam. 

 

MORNING FORKERS

It is a strange morning, where are the posts containing all things armoires de cuisine? It is like that Scottish play, I dare not write the words and I have my fingers crossed. 

Happy garden Friday, it is raining but very green.

I have a rescue rose, tired and £2 from a garden centre. It is called Gitta Biehler. I can find no information about it anywhere, has anybody heard of it.
