* Note to Ursula B. at the bottom
A month ago, in mid August, we had some early warm weather.
After publishing my post last week I realised that I had not acknowledged the source of information about the use of vinegar in the conditioning of cut plant materials. It came from an out-of-print booklet, "Post-harvest care of cut flowers" prepared by Dr R Jones, Institute of Plant Sciences, Knoxfield Campus, Victoria, prepared for the horticultural industry.
