    Do be careful. If the plants fall on somebody's bonce, you could be liable.

    Stinky water butts

    I think that I am going to get myself on Facebook, I think I am missing out.

    Stinky water butts

    I was just wondering how long it take for someone to respond to my comment. I had better be careful in case I get thrown off the forum (again).

    It does happen.

    Fake vft or not

    VFT seed is very distinctive, the seeds are small, black and shiney. They are also pear shaped. The seedlings just don't look like Sarracenia at all.

    Potassium permanganate, if you didn't quite catch that..You can get it at the local chemists.

    can I take my plants outside?

    Hi Hayley, I was just wondering what you do about your water supply. I live in a flat and I use a distiller.You can pick one up for about £70 from Amazon.

    Where's my rain?

    Just had a word with Keith on the phone. The unit that he has bought is the Life Water Distillery and it is 79.99.

    I had a quick look on Amazon. Amazon also sell distillers for making moonshine. It would be important to buy one for distilling water unless you want a visit from HMRC. I think moonshine distillers would be highly illegal in the UK. Someone did tell me years ago that you need a licence for a water distiller in the UK. It's probably one of those things that the police have got more important things on their agenda and they probably can't be bothered to chase these days.

    Keith Shoesmith has just bought a distiller from Amazon for 85 pounds. I am not sure which one it is but it says it is suitable for doctor's surgeries, dental surgeries and labs. Keith is quite pleased with it so far. My distiller cost me 140 pounds 20 years ago but I think that the Ecowater ones are about 300 pounds now, which is a lot of money. If Keith's distiller turns out to be OK, 85 pounds is quite reasonable.

    What I did like about Wack's Wicked Plants was that their stand was so different to what has been on display these last few years. There is nothing wrong with Matt's and Nigel's stands. Once they have found a winning formula, they have stuck with it, but Wack's tried something different and pulled it off.

    I must admit that I missed their stand at Chelsea. It's very similar to the stand at the NEC though.
