Ha ha ha, that's grate, had a look at the facebook page, looks pretty popular. Wounder what the tourists make of all the locals rummaging around in the street flower pots and green spaces, pulling up weeds and shoving them in there pockets with a look of satisfaction on there faces. lol

Yes it has a good following. I don't know if I want to give away the locations of nice wild black berries, wild cherries and walnuts.

I also think Parks managers should plant these things in public spaces as well. lemon trees for nice Gin and Tonics!!

Ooor come on Alan... do tell?
I have a lemon tree, I'd be more than happy for people to come round and grab some. It's usually full and I keep it watered well. Flick me a sms if you want some.
