Obelixx, I wonder the same about wine.  If people start on the cheap bottles, do they ever get to the more expensive, reliable good wines which they will actually enjoy?

There were seven kites circling over the house yesterday.  I can see them circling a short distance away today too. They love muck-spreading time.

Cooked food in copost?

Our Council supply a waste food bin to every household. They empty it every week and use the contents to make compost which we can buy by the bag or trailer-load.  And it's nice stuff too.

Lobby your Council if it doesn't do the same.

Parkers, T&M, Hayloft are some of several companies I will not use in future.  There are others and several seed companies too.

Christmas Cactus drops its flowers if it's moved.  Not quite sure how you are supposed to get the plant home without causing the flowers to fall. 

My Christmas cactus only see the sun through net curtains as they are in the downstairs loo where it is cool.  The flowers individually do not last more than a couple of days, but there are very many of them.

Never washed an onion, in my life. I leave the soil until it is dry and I can remove it manually.  IMO washing would encourage rot rather than prevent it.  But, if it works for you.....

I hate them so much when I won one in a raffle I handed it back to be drawn again.

Puzzle, you're not going to get coloured bracts unless you subject to a very strict regime of light and dark, mainly achieved by professional growers.
