"Developed in Switzerland by a family fruit nursery that began as long ago as 1889, their Lubera brand specialises in new fruit varieties of all kinds. Their RedLove apple was launched last year."

I bought my dwarf apricot from them, but this is a German company, not Swiss, they just have a branch in Switzerland.

The manager of a garden centre overhears one of his nurseryman talking to a customer. ‘No, we haven’t had any of that in ages,’ says the nurseryman. ‘And I don’t know when we’ll be getting any more.’ The customer leaves and the manager walks over to give him a telling off. ‘Never tell a customer we can’t get them something,’ he says. ‘Whatever they want we can always get it on order and deliver it. D’you understand?’ The nurseryman nods. ‘So what did he want?’ asks the manager. ‘Rain,’ replies the nurseryman.

Well said, Verdun. Not to mention the millions flying about in thousands of aeroplanes daily spewing out toxic fumes just under the ozon layer!

Thank you to Tech team
