The information provided on this web site is written by amateurs, not professionals.  The information presented is purely a record of what we've done in our garden and kitchen and whats worked for us  – it may not work in yours, we may have omitted certain information. The same applies to receipes, these are the cooking methods we have used, certain ingredients may cause allergies, and certain cooking techniques may not be considered safe, we may have omitted certain steps and information.

Remember that Garden success depends a lot upon the climate of your area, in Cornwall the climate is relatively mild, and often wet and windy.  Whilst we can get frosts and snow they are limited to normally less than 1 week per year.   Springs are generally mild as is autumn and early winter.
