Zones in gardening terms?

Posted: 07/11/2013 at 13:16

I have gardened for 40 years without the benefit of American ratings. My advice is to totally ignore them... they have no part to play here. The conditions are so different as to be useless to UK gardeners. Do you think that US gardeners rely on RHS ratings? Horses for courses.

Talkback: Making leaf mould

Posted: 07/11/2013 at 09:34

No reason at all not to mix it all up, including leaves. A lot of my leaves are chopped up and collected as I mow my grass at the end of the year. My Mountfield is a very good "Hoover" ! But I don't use it indoors......

My comment was not meant to be political either... more a comment on all our leaders... signed "the Balanced Broadcasting Corporation"

Cameron and his Bullingdon pals often adopt estuarine english to make out we are all in it together. Osborne can talk very common when he chooses to. It's fun to watch and spot it. Bit like Prescott talking Posh. only in reverse.

Don't we love our leaders?

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.
