The Met Office thinks that 1st dec. is start of Winter. As has been indisputably established on this thread Autumn does not start until 1st November, and today is the very end of late Summer. Thank you everyone for going along with my foible.

Take a few, turn your back, and start again with all your accumulated knowledge and enthusiasm. Don't look back.......

Life is full of choices.....take this one and revel in it.

Hi GG... I like Chris packham too... he is a Southampton boy, supports the Saints, and lives in the New Forest...haven't bumped into him yet.

He would be one of my guests at a special dinner, along with Christo Lloyd ( if you are allowed to invite those who are already dead) That would be some lively discussion.

No need to wait. They get no actual benefit from the frosting... it's just that the foliage is slaughtered, but the tuber is still OK.

Labels or forget

Posted: 31/10/2013 at 21:26

At Great Dixter, Christo LLoyds brilliant garden, there is a sign explaining 9 reasons why no plants are labelled. 1. people steal labels. 2. people move labels. 3. birds pull up labels. etc. etc. 

If anyone asked CL a question about a plant he would only answer them if they had a pencil and paper to hand... because they would always forget. If. on the other hand, they did write stuff down he would be the best teacher ever.

Hard plants to grow from seed

My verbena bonariensis seed into my gravel paths without any help from me, which may be a clue as to how to germinate them.

Parsley can be difficult to germinate... they do say that if your parsley germinates easily you are unlucky in love... and vice versa..

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.
