    Being a groundskeeper in a garden of a historic castle doesn’t typically fall under the world’s most dangerous jobs category… except when it comes to England’s Alnwick Castle. The country’s least populated county is home to a collection of some of the world’s most deadly greenery. The property hosts a garden dedicated solely to plants with the power to kill you in a matter of minutes. According to the Alnwick Castle website, the garden was founded in 2005 by the Duchess of Northumberland with the mission of bringing awareness to the lethal dangers of harmful and illegal drugs. The intoxicating...

    Greetings All; Here is another thought provoking discussion on what we can do when the world we know & love falls apart. Last week I had posted some thoughts on using an air rifle to remove garden raiders/pests. So after talking to a friend of mine [Jim Chapman], he recommended this article from the mag. Outdoor Life. [www.outdoorlife.com] He goes through a very long list of air rifles & their different uses. Air guns have come a very long way since the days of the Daisy Red Ryder's. There are some rifles that can hit a target out to over...

    The researchers think it is likely that most flowering plants, or angiosperms, contain similar sucrose-susceptible genes, making their “sweetening technology” widely applicable. Credit: Cienpies Design ================================================================================================= Previous research has shown that the sugar sucrose plays a role in controlling key fruit genes involved in sugar metabolism. Efforts to control these genes succeeded in increasing the sugar content in fruit but also resulted in stunted growth. Researchers from Tohoku University in Japan used a bioinformatics search tool to find nucleotide sequences in the tomato genome similar to a known tobacco gene sequence that can be repressed by sucrose.

    Wild tomatoes are better able to protect themselves against the destructive whitefly than our modern, commercial varieties, new research has shown. The study, published today in the academic journal Agronomy for Sustainable Development, shows that in our quest for larger redder, longer-lasting tomatoes we have inadvertently bred out key characteristics that help the plant defend itself against predators. Dual mode of resistance in wild tomatoes Led by Newcastle University, UK, the research shows that wild tomatoes have a dual line of defence against these voracious pests; an initial mechanism which discourages the whitefly from settling on the plant in the...
