Each Text Description below each of the Thumbnails in the Flower Colour/Month Comparison Pages in this Gallery gives you the:-

  • soil type it prefers,
  • plant name,
  • sun aspect,
  • soil moisture in the background colour,
  • plant type,
  • months of flowering and
  • height of the plant in the border colour

of that plant. Click on the centre of each Thumbnail to add the full description and larger photos of that plant.
 

 

 

For Hay Fever sufferers, it is better to have bee-pollinated plants than wind-pollinated plants, since the pollen spread by that wind is what causes their suffering. The plants in this gallery are bee-pollinated and they should be used in preference to grasses etc when using the selection procedure below.

 

 

The Introduction Page of the Plants Topic provides a system of how to choose your plants for your garden with the following diagram to create a suitable list of plants.

 

Instructions for use of the following diagram:-

Click inside green box to link to that
Photo Gallery Site Map Page with its Index for lists of plants
or
view flower colour per month comparison pages using its links on their flower colour per month Colour Wheel, followed by clicking on thumbnail to review its added Plant Description Page.

The Galleries - specified below - contain the Index listing all the plants in their respective Sub-Galleries in each page and the flower colour comparison per month of all its plants (the Bamboo Gallery compares Cane colour).

"Want To Keep Bees?

Learn how to become a beekeeper and save the honey bees:

Bees are pollinators vital to our food chain. One third of the food we eat would not be available but for bees. Bees are under threat and need your support.

Beekeeping can be a fascinating hobby, a profitable sideline, or a full-time occupation. You may want to keep bees for the delicious fresh honey they produce, for the benefits of their valuable services as pollinators, or perhaps simply for the enjoyment of learning more about one of nature’s most interesting insects. Almost anyone can keep bees.

If you want to learn more, come & join one of our courses; next one starts mid Jan 2016 and learn the basics of beekeeping as well as being supported through your first year.

Surrey Bees also takes an active part in the education of children in Beekeeping though visits to locals schools. We also invite young beekeepers to attend and pass the BBKA Junior Assessment. We support local schools educating them in the importance of bees as well as covering the Skills section of the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

See also our Junior Summer Camps for junior beekeepers to meet the bees and extract their own honey in July.

If you have never done beekeeping before, this is a wonderful opportunity to get first-hand experience as well as confidence and knowledge to help you become a beekeeper, with honey in your first year. To enquire about available places please complete the enquiry form and one of the team will contact you to discuss preferred available course dates and venues. You’ll be amazed how easy it is!

If you do not have a Bee suit they can be provided." from Courses Page of Surrey Bees Training (SBT).

Oscar's 2,000 mile Purr-fect Trip in The Unadulterated Cat by Terry Pratchett:-

"Oscar's 2,000 mile Purr-fect Trip says the heading in the local paper. Or something like that. At least once every year. In every local paper. It's a regular like 'Row over Civic Site'or 'Storm as Schools Probe Looms'.

So many stories like this have turned up that researchers from the Campaign for Real Cats have been, well, researching.

The astonishing truth has not been suspected, possibly because not many people in this country have more than one local paper. But, from hundreds of cuttings sent in by Campaign members, it finally emerged.

They're all the same cat.Not the same type of cat. The same cat.

It's a smallish black and white tom. Never mind about the variety of names, which are only of significance to humans, although interestingly the name Oscar does seem to crop up rather a lot. Careful anaysis of dozens of pictures of The Travelling Cat blinking in the flashlight's glare has proved it.

It appeared to do a minimum of 15,000 miles last year, much of it in car engine compartments, where only its piteous mewling alerts the driver when he stops off for a coffee.

Confirmation will not be achieved until Oscar has been tracked down by researchers armed with a truckload of painful equipment, but the current, rather interesting, theory is that what initially appears to be this piteous mewling is in fact a stream of directions on the lines of 'left, here, I said left, left you twerp, all right, keep going until we get to the trading estate and then you can pick up the A370...'

Oscar is, in fact, trying to get somewhere. The process is a bit hit and miss, and possibly he has underestimated the size of the country and the number of vehicles in it, but he's keeping at it. Certainly, in the best tradition of Real Cats everywhere, he's doing anything rather than get out and walk."

 

It is of course possible that this cat has travelled abroad and back again:-

  • Although the cat does not travel with his passport, I am surprised that the driver of each car crossing the border has not put this cat into quarantine, - paid for a new cat passport, microfiched it and attached that microfiche to the cats collar for the next border control to check - and then waited until it is out of quarantine before continueing their combined journey.
  • The driver is also responsible for paying the cross-channel fare for this cat, since that cat is dependent on him having driven his car in order to keep this cat warm whilst being transported to that ferry.
  • If the cat changes vehicles and comes back with a different driver, then that driver may be fined for bringing in an illegal immigrant. It may be possible to eject the cat , if each driver ejects his passengers and luggage, before steam-cleaning the inside and outside of his or her vehicle, before entering the port to go onto a ferry or respective railway station for train transportation. This might persuade the cat to leave that vehicle. If it does not leave, the the driver could be prosecuted for subjecting the cat to cruelty in spraying it with steam.
  • Of course if it has been found that the cat has not been fed, watered and well-looked after, then the driver may face prosecution.
  • In conclusion, it might be safer not to use your car to travel anywhere.
