On The Archers a couple of weeks ago Mike was boring everyone to tears with in depth monologues about how to tell if an acorn was "viable" by putting it in a bucket of water. This was only marginally less tedious than Vicky rabbiting on about her patio heaters. Unfortunately I have forgotten whether the dud acorns float or sink.
This matters because it just so happens that an acorn has just come into my possession and I would quite like to try and see if it will germinate.
Do you happen to know anything about growing trees from seed?
Or could you point me in the direction of a useful guide?
PS. And in the light of yesterday's sad news, Norman Painting, aka Phil Archer, R.I.P.
PPS. Did anyone see Le Restorrrron with Raymond Blanc last night? Those women trying to open a can with a large knife and a rolling pin had me peering through my fingers. I was sure someone was going to end up in Casualty any minute.
