I find your website useful and easy to us. I also enjoy your changing ads. in papers and mags. On Saturday at the Garden Organic AGM Professor Ian Lang, talking about Food Security urged us all to grow more fruit. He pointed out that in Britain we produce a mere 5% of the fruit we eat, and we should consume 9 a day not just 5 a day fruit and veg. Last November I planted your Polka raspberries. They are now strong tall vigorous canes, tallest I have ever grown and producing throughout the summer. I'll need steps to pick the late ones!! My first purchase from you was before the web, shrub roses for my allotment for the vit. C. Enjoyed your family history.
