Hi Liz, been meaning to ask you, do they still sell those huge Bresse chickens in the French supermarkets and are they very expensive?

Ooops, and good evening everyone!

Hi Tads, my box ball in a terracotta pot was completely eaten by box tree moth caterpillars in June. I cut it all of right down to about 2 inches intending to chuck it away, but forgot about it. It now has new growth about 8 inches long, so I think your box will come back in due time. Perhaps you could spray it with a fungicide for good measure.

I presume the original was a twisted dwarf robinia, however that looks like a seedling, it will not grow "twisted" and will have very sharp thorns. We have one and the seedlings all revert to the original type.

Never had any earwigs on my dahlias, in fact haven't seen any at all here this year.

Nail a pair of old boots onto two pieces of wooden boards approx. 18x6 inches. Then walk over it, much quicker and more even!
