    Nothing to do with rabbits.

    Bit of a long shot but does anyone have any hop seed (humulus lupulus)?

    You know the stuff breweries use.

    If at first you don't succeed, open a bottle of wine.

    I don't know about seeds, but I have got hop plants flowering like blazes in my back yard and I can't get rid of it! It's the green one not the yellow - want some? I've got your address, so can send you some if you want!

    Yes and are mentioned in Richard Mabey's book too in a frittata recipe. Good excuse for a post prandial snooze then.

    Squirrel will the plants survive ok. And did you still want everlasting sweet peas?
