Opening on 14 June, DD. i have replanted large parts of the garden, so I have no real idea what it will look like.

Anyone know any good trees that like very wet ground??

There are some fine specimens of Met.Seq. in this country, with lovely fissured/twisted bark and fresh green foliage, renewed each year as is unusually deciduous. Good overall shape, but give it plenty of room as no-one knows how large it will grow in the Uk, as there are no mature specimens yet... it having been thought to be extinct and then rediscovered in China in the 1940s.

I grow loads of dahlias, some in pots. I repotted the potty ones today. Old MPC put on raised beds. Also got plants ready for tomorrow's plant sale in the village hall, where we raise funds for the Hortisoc.

My hosts used to be in the ground but used copious pellets to keep them half decent. Dug them all up and potted them. If I use pellets now the wildlife is safe. And the hosts look great.

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
