You can make tea with them, but I don't know what it tastes like. As ina says, it's associated with urinary tract can have a diuretic effect.

Re: Empty supermarket recipes

Indeed, since lockdown we've had to make many of our purchases online, mainly arriving in boxes, plus our weekly veg box. Lockdown has also given us more of an opportunity to do some jobs that have been on hold - more boxes. Being late spring/summer we haven't lit the boiler for weeks, which is wher...

Re: Empty supermarket recipes

Good luck with that, ina. Have you got a mask? Stay safe. I agree that they're doing things 4rse about face (as my Dad would have said :lol:). I also have a feeling they'll use this as an opportunity to not re-open some of the facilities on the way. Our council has been trying to shut down many of t...

Re: Mulberry wine

Sorry, Bernard, I've got no idea. I buy dried white mulberries for an occasional "sweet fix" nibble. I can imagine how good they'd taste as wine but they're hellish expensive. Mulberry trees are quite rare over here these days. I think they probably get ripped out for new build areas as they're so b...

Re: Bamboo advice please!

You could also try ammonium sulphamate (I'm not a fan of glyphosate, although could be tempted with this damned ground elder!). It's sold as a compost accelerator but is very good at "composting in situ" live plants, so be careful where you splash it and don't plant anything there for at least 3 mon...

Re: Eco friendly insecticide

I hadn't thought about it in those terms but have long been of the opinion that all these things have some place in the ecosystem, even if I can't fathom it - wasps anyone? No need for replies. :lol: A long time ago I read something from someone much wiser than me (can't remember who) who said to pl...

Re: Empty supermarket recipes

One state in Oz has had a significant spike in positive cases following some relaxing of the rules This seems to be the case wherever they've eased restrictions. Although return to lockdown seems to be the onus of regional, rather than national, government now. In Scotland we've had no deaths for 3...

Re: Change of Lifestyle

I get most of my clothes on Fleabay. Otherwise it's a minimum 140 mile round trip to the nearest charity shop, open or not! Mind, prices seem to have gone up since lockdown - I suppose people are cottoning on to the notion they can make money out of all this - some, I'm sure, out of need others not ...

Re: Eco friendly insecticide

When I said I didn't know why, I meant it shouldn't have been a surprise. We have a vast history of ruining eco-systems by introducing beautiful/medicinal/pest killing flora and fauna into alien terrains, which take over.
