Picking up again on the discussion about taking down your Christmas tree, a lady has just very confidently told me they should be down by midnight today. I, for one will be leaving mine 'till tomorrow.Always liked bending the rules

Whether the 5th or 6th , it's always sad to see the tree etc come down. However just think how quickly you would go bonkers if it lasted all year round! If there is confusion as to which is the correct date, then it's up to you to decide which is best for you.


I hope I was missed?

Hello Bill, how are you managing in this awful weather. And when it finishes with you it rattles across the Atlantic, warms up and dumps loads of rain on us, together with very high winds and tidal surges! We are owed a very good summer, or are we paying for the last one?

Thinking of you Chicky ... I am looking on the bright side and can see new vistas, lots of logs to keep you warm and loads of new planting opportunities. Good luck and a speedy resolution.

What's the weather like in your area?

Laurels tend to be a lightish green, whilst rhodos are generally darker. Is it lighter than a Rhodo?

Is bramble capable of sprouting from a small piece? I ask because it roots readily where it touches ground.

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.
