Less obvious abuse
Justifying Animal Testing?
Justify Toxicity Testing?
Mind over matter
Is wanting to be more attractive good justification?
Is wanting to sell your stuff in China good enough justification?
Should we look at the China's other practices?
Or look first at our own?
We create our own reality
This is what I added for those town dwellers who have a garden but mustn't lose the light into their windows:
Frances MicklemDon't forget that if you only have a small garden you can still plant a tree or three but snip their apex (central stem) after a year so they grow outwards like a shrub or a hedge - fuller rather than higher and yet still ding the good work and happy to be planted xxx
Frances Micklem Thanks. I went looking for links but really the things are 1) to cut stems at an angle so the rainwater doesn't gather and 2) Do it in autumn or winter when it's not busy with sap surging. 3) Leave them a few years so they're established. My first lot werecrabapple, the fruit of which can make a savoury mint jelly or sweet jelly. Now they're a real windbreak for the pony and pet pigs, rather than all trunk and canopy up high. Everything here is an experiment but I know for definite that root systems like company so always plant at least 2 I reckon, even different species relate well! Here's a crab apple link in case there's any gems in it!
