^very much agree with that.   Wessex Mill is another I've used and that's been surprisingly good.  Dove's Farm organic I like too... and yes Waitrose have a really good selection and this is where I do buy their own brand... however I stick with Marriage's whenever I can... depends where I'm shopping...

I aim to make that nectarine and raspberry cake at the weekend.  I shall only post a photo if I think it's as nice as yours...

Digitalis

I've only ever grown the Digitalis 'Excelsior Hybrid' strain which I loved very much and found it very easy to grow - biennial of course... they were just such a pleasure.  I keep meaning to return to them at some point...

Veronicastrums and heleniums

Posted: 17/04/2013 at 21:35

Helenium 'Moerheim Beauty' is the only one I've grown, although at the Wisley trials some years ago the variety 'Rubinzwerg' caught my eye and I thought it best of the lot.  I'm still waiting to grow that one...

I didn't find my Helenium's invasive at all... reliably perennial though...

Veronicastrums I'm not familiar with from growing, only reading about... quite tall plants I think...?

I use the cake tin liners from Lakeland instead of foil.  It's a brillant blog.  The writer is one of the regulars on the other Forum I'm a member of - if you're interested in cooking give it a look http://www.wildfood.info/index.php - I'm afraid the first few posts of new members have to go through moderation 'cos we had problems with a Troll, but after that Bob's your uncle, it's plain sailing and a very friendly bunch like on here   

I have a different name over there - see if you can spot me

..a tricky one to answer, it'll take a bit of time I think...

but a very nice forum I must say, and I shall be looking in to see what I can find - thank you so much for letting me know.  I may register later on when I get more time.... but I like the enthusiasm and the recipe choices.  People seem to like Rachel Allen's - I like some of her baking, not all... I'm always interested to read what other's are doing in the kitchen...

..yes those Lakeland baking cases are very good, I used to use their liners a lot. Pity there isn't a shop near me now, and I don't buy enough from them for mail order...

 

...lovely fruit cake from Scotkat, especially one made with wholemeal, which I use a lot....... we could all do with a slice of that...

I wonder do any of you use supermarket own brand flour for baking?  I go for branded personally.  Not sure if I'm allowed to say but I will anyway, Allinson's or Marriage's flour I like best.  Waitrose do a good selection too... and I do prefer Canadian flour for bread...

...I think it's actually quite complicated Katie, on this site, and not a little time consuming especially when things are running slow.  However, saying that, you get used to it...

when typing your post you will notice the icon bar above where you type.  3rd from the right is what looks like a green tree, or to me, a little green t.v. set on a stand

you click on that, this opens a box and you click on 'Select' to select a file to upload - presumably from 'your computer'...

you can then browse your pictures on your p.c. and double click on the one you want to upload.  When that file has transferred to the box, click on 'upload'.  It takes time, and you should get a box with a red 'x' in it when it's completed [that's what I get anyway].  Click 'save' and your photo should appear in your post...

I hope you followed that alright, I do find it a bit messy on this forum... but in it's favour, at least we don't have to use 'photobucket' if we don't want.... but if you do then click on upload 'from an external site'...

..thank you so much, I'm familiar with some of Dan Lepard's work, and have copied that recipe. I can't wait to try that out... I note on the blog about greasing foil but we can get non stick foil now so I shall use that... I wonder too if I can replace the semolina with polenta....

some lovely recipe's on that blog site, I'm saving it to my favourites as I've found a nice cherry cake to try too..
