    I bought a collection of cut flower seeds from you earlier in the year and amongst the collection is hyperlinks which is just right for cutting now. Do I cut them at soil level and will they ‘re grow?

    Just been reading the latest Sarah Raven missive. Some lovely stuff. Just wanted to let you know she uses Ipomoea lobata as a cut flower too-sear the ends in boiling water first.

    I’m slightly worried that I might come over as one of those pedants who carries a pen so that they can correct apostrophes on signs but you are perfectly correct to write “growing cut flowers”. This is because “cut flowers” is an open compound noun; another similar example would be “playing lawn tennis” where “lawn tennis” is a compound noun. So “Well done you.”
