Summer's finally here!
What better combination can there be.....hot sunny afternoons in the garden and a lovely (cool) refreshing cuppa?
Whether you want to simply substitute your hot tea for some cool iced tea, or indulge in an afternoon iced-tea cocktail party (and cake, of course) for your friends, now's the time to start your preparation.....

In the last 50 years, the UK has lost 90% of its Cherry Orchards and now imports 95% of the cherries eaten from Spain, Turkey and the US.
You can support the British Cherry by finding a Cherry Orchard to either pick-your-own or sponsor a Cherry Tree or you could even plant a cherry tree/miniature cherry tree in your garden.

The little-known Gorgeous Grandma Day falls on the 23rd July and, just like Mothers Day and Fathers Day, it's an opportunity to show our 'grans', 'grannies', 'nans', 'nannies' and great grandmas just how much they mean to us.

Although scientifically a Vegetable (herbaceous perennial to be more specific) and not a fruit, in 1947 a New York court declared rhubarb a fruit because it is most often cooked as one in the US.
Related to Sorrel, flowering time in the UK is Early spring to late summer (April until July). There are lots of different varieties of rhubarb, which are easy to grow and very hardy.
