Worst Winter ....... .?

That was the year I was born and my Mother tells me we were effectively housebound for months? Explains why I am such a shy retiring sort.

Invite all the fit young things in your family. Lay on food and a few bottles, and tools and Bob's your uncle.

Hi Ryan, have you contacted "Plant Heritage" which is the umbrella organisation for the National Collections. Used to be called the NCPPG.  I might be able to help with a contact.

We have an annual "plant sale" in the village so you can donate any spare plants etc. to the Hortsoc, and they sell them for the kitty. This year I will donate my Chrysanths which someone else might give more love and attention to and get better flowers. I have Verbena bo. seedlings rescued from my gravel too.

A gardener's brain is programmed to see beauty first, buy it second, and only then wonder where the hell are you going to put it.

If it was the other way around you would buy very little.

Risotto was reeeeeely delicious, even if I do say so myself. . Just one portion left. May add a little curry powder, and a hard boiled egg and call it Kedgeree, for breakfast!!

Hello, cooking my first ever risotto for lunch with my fish eating veggie friend. Smoked Haddock and Spinach. Don't let me down Nigel. Anyone else for a portion?

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.
