From Allan's Wife, Pamela

Thank you all so much for your tributes to Allan. So many of your names are familiar to me as he often talked about the Forum. JB was kind enough to come to Allan's funeral on Friday. Here is the arrangement of flowers, herbs and vegetables I made for his coffin. http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/pameladay...

We never came up with anything better. Wire is fiddly but it is cheap, Anything more robust means that if the cage gets mishandled breakages could occur.

Mesh cages

May I remind you that my description of mesh cages is still available under the technical data section (Feb 2007).We found them very versatile and effective on everything from rabbits to slugs.

They sell water in big bottles seperately.
If people can add water to other things according to instructions eg Campbells soups, they can dilute the orange juices the same as is done with squash drinks.

That website is a very good place to pick up a link to all sorts of things. For instance I found out thet the Tetra drinks cartons and many similar can be recycled with the right machinery, some people get as much as 70% recovery. It always seems wrong to me that there are large quantities of water ...

The new "weedol 2" is diquat only, surely this would do the same job. Or how\about a flame gun?
