Re: Not new...

Thanks all, its good to be back :)
I have a (small) garden now, and am going to be experimenting with pallet growing, among other things, plus keeping bees, and should have my first allotment within the next month or so :D Next on the list might be chickens! :)

Inspired by the likes of People's Supermarket, we aim to be opening a store by the end of the year in order to sell ethical and sustainab...

Re: Insence as a form of air freshener

An excellent incense company is The Mother's India Fragrances. They're Fair Trade and completely herbal, fairly priced (around £2 for a pack of 20 sticks) and come in a wide range of 'flavours' which are strong but not overpowering. I first bought some on holiday in Cornwall last year and took some ...

Re: What wild foods are about in your neck of the woods

Today, on an unsuccessful hunt for some unmentionable mushrooms, I discovered blackberries, haws, sloes, hazelnuts, rowanberries, a multitude of apples, and the back of my hand discovered some rather sneaky nettles :s There are probably more forageables there, I'm just not very up on wild foods :) I...

When they flower they should encourage a few bees and butterflies and whatnot, and when they go to seed it'll be a bit more bird food :)

Re: How do I loose my beer belly

I tend to follow the Food Doctor principles, they're all about keeping your blood sugar levels on an even keel, which keeps you...

Selling Home-made Toiletries.

I'm looking for a little advice. A friend of mine runs a shop in town and wants to start selling her own line of herbal/natural toiletries and has asked me to help out. Now I know there are all kinds of legal requirements but am unsure as to what they are exactly. I was wondering if someone could po...
