Like that, Nuthatch :yes:.
The 'cut the side out of a carton' is ever such a good idea :clap:.
I reckon the best way to preserve basil (MMMMMMMMMMMMMM :yummy: :yummy: :yummy) is to make pesto. I've never successfully grown basil but desperately wish I could. Perhaps that tip is for our Mediterranean viewers.

Have a word with your head gardener and get them to put it in the greenhouse or Orangery.

Such a hoot is Jacksparrow :nod:

I like that idea too, Placi - like a little window (sill) box :flower:

I think a V8 carton would do well :). Would match my colour-scheme of red, maroon, orange, black, green and white.

Anyone ever got rid of Rose Black Spot? I believe it is a fungus. What can I use to treat the roses, they are in large pots.

Pick the leaves off and burn them. Look up copper fungicide for roses. Think that is the stuff.
