Will it grow? or How can I kill it? / Re: New Dawn and Emily Gray
« Last post by GeordieBorn on December 22, 2017, 10:59:40 AM »
Both are superb climbers that have lovely soft pink and yellow tones complimenting the stone of buildings in Abruzzo.I bough mine in UK and planted them in May. No watering no feeding only massive pruning needing.They love Abruzzo and I can really recommend them if you want a climbing rose.
For me another benefit is the growth in the gecko numbers since they can jusr nip under a leaf when a predator is about! I personally could never have enough geckos as not only are they lovely to look at they eat all those pesky flies that are so annoying in the summer. Hornets seem to avoid nesting when there are lots of geckos so perhaps they eat the grubs?
DV are we talking geckos or lizards here? We have only ever seen one of the former and a beautiful little creature it was. Lizards (also superb) seem to have increased in recent years, but not too sure if this is just down to the weather.

If you do not have enough oil to take daily for health purposes the leaves of olives are as good too. Make them into tea or a tincture and take this daily to keep off colds and flu and I think it works well for -
Lowers Blood Pressure. ...
Improves Cardiovascular Health. ...
Diabetes. ...
Reduces the Risk of Cancer. ...
Improves Brain Function. ...
Treats Arthritis. ...
Kills Bacteria and Fungi. ...
Improves Immune System.

Had to leave most of it in Abruzzo but bought 2 100 mil bottles so I could bring it back to the UK and sip it daily!

It is a very good idea to take extra virgin olive oil daily, I usually have a tablespoon a day, although the new oil really hits the back of your throat.

One of the ingredients in extra virgin olive oil, namely olecanthal, is one of the ingredients that partly explains the benefits of a Mediterranean diet. It is also proven that extra virgin olive oil helps against various cancers including breast cancer, skin cancer and other cancers, helps prevent diabetes, osteoporosis, heart disease, Alzheimer's, helps blood pressure and so the list goes on.

However, for these benefits it has to be proper extra virgin olive oil, not some shop bought stuff that claims to be extra virgin.

I sell my EVOO, most of it goes to Poland, but still have some for sale if anyone is interested. 9 a litre or 40 for 5 litres.  :)


I've sent you an email via your website.
