My expertise in gardens and plants was called up recently at Inchmarlo when Daddy and I met Jennifer Brodie of Remin to supervise the planting of a selection of plants. 3 boxes of garden flowers were planted in normal earth and 3 boxes of the same flowers except volcanic rock dust had been added to the earth. Daddy had met Jennifer at the AECC 2 months ago when he was told that she had set up a company called Remin Scotland Ltd., which provides earth mixed with volcanic dust, which she believes provides a better result when the plants bloom. Because we have so many plants and flowers around Inchmarlo, Daddy thought he would offer the use of Inchmarlo as a testing ground. Last week our Head Gardener Jim, Jennifer, Daddy and I went and supervised the boxes. The Press & Journal sent out a photographer and it will be fascinating to see the difference in the growth and flowering of the plants with the volcanic dust compared to the plants without over the next two months.
