    Fuchsia fruits

    I stewed the berries with sugar in a separate pan all the purple colour came out but they tasted awful and peppery :eek: so they never made the crumble. I will stick to just the apple in future.

    GRAVEL GARDENS!

    Perhaps it is about gravel size. My pussies have long gone to heaven and are not being replaced due to my winter retreat.

    Eliminating Sedum

    Many thanks for that. I have noticed that Weedol seems to set it back and I'm probably at fault in not following it up with further applications before it has time to recover. I'll try Roundup.
