  • The tulip became very popular in Ottoman territories where it was first cultivated and was seen as a symbol of abundance and indulgence.
  • In fact, the era during which the Ottoman Empire was wealthiest is often called the Tulip era or Lale Devri in Turkish.
  • Tulips are planted at least twice the bulb’s width apart and to a depth of two or three times the bulb’s height. They prefer a soil that is neutral to alkaline.
  • The genus Tulipa comprises 109 species and belongs to the family Liliaceae.


  • Kohl rabi, otherwise known as the German turnip, is a cultivar of the cabbage that will grow almost anywhere.
  • The taste and texture of kohl rabi are similar to those of a broccoli stem or cabbage heart, but milder and sweeter, with a higher ratio of flesh to skin.
  • Kohl rabi can be eaten raw as well as cooked.
  • A fast growing vegetable, kohl rabi matures within 60 days of seed being sown.


  • The tayberry was patented in 1979 as a cross between a blackberry and a red raspberry.
  • Tayberries should be ready to harvest in early July, depending on the type. Frost is rarely a problem, as tayberries flower late in the season.
  • Tayberries are very soft when fully ripe, so they cannot be harvested by machine and are not a commercially viable soft fruit.
  • Producing heavier crops than a loganberry, the tayberry is excellent for cooking, freezing and jam making.


  • Horse manure is 0.7% nitrogen, Rabbit manure is 2.4% nitrogen, Pigeon manure is 5.0% nitrogen, Chicken manure is 1.5% nitrogen.
  • Pigeon manure is generally too strong to use directly on the garden but it does make an excellent activator for a compost heap.
  • The only plant that you can apply pigeon manure to directly is comfrey.
  • Pigeons are highly intelligent and can recognise all 26 letters of the alphabet.
