Just to say thank you. The Heron protection electric fence is just great. Ordered Thursday, delivered Monday, finished installing on Wednesday, the pond was attacked Wednesday night I am not sure if it was a cat or heron but my prize fish is still cruising around. I knew the electric fence would work, as I thought I would improve the route to earth by adding an extra earth wire round the pond and back to the energizer, thinking it's not going to have much power I did not turn the mains off, the earth wire touched the live wires, and although I don’t have much hair, I believe what I have was styled into a punk hair do in an instant. Excellent piece of kit, along with excellent service and advice. (plus Hair styling optional extra for thick'os who don't respect electricity). Thanks again

Thanks to 'celebrity' gardeners and chefs such as Carol Klein, Alys Fowler, Marc Diacono and Nigel Slater, this once little known and much underrated vegetable is now finding the favour it truly deserves.
Crushingly easy to grow and self perpetuating, these are an essential for hearty Winter dishes; simply slice and sauté, roast or use as a base for fantastic soups.
Jerusalem Artichokes are infamous for their after effects - and certainly do live up to their nickname of 'Fartichokes'! But don't let that put you off these lovely veg, and remember that incorporating the herb Winter Savory into your dishes will go a long way to alleviate this problem.
In the garden or allotment Jerusalem Artichokes can be used as a very successful wind break (or should that be that they actually absorb the wind, releasing it when eaten?) growing to around 6 - 8 feet (1.8 - 2.4 metres) tall. Closely related to the Sunflower, they are also extremely pretty when they flower late Summer.
The variety Fuseau is particularly useful for the kitchen as it is less nobly and smoother skinned, making it easier to clean and peel.
Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.
