Re: Aroids in London

Thank you for the advice on the markets, Peter. I have looked a number of
times on various trips and in various places, but have had more luck with
gingers than with aroids. I am usually in London in October/November, which
may not be the best time of year.  I had forgotten about Southall (I grew up
in Hanwell), and will try to get out there next month. After a lot of years
I decided that I had to do Chelsea Flower Show  again while I could still
walk around it - so Southall goes on the agenda.
Lisa, there are a number of sites with news about Foot and mouth to amplify
what Peter says. www.openbritain.gov.uk has a number of links that are
useful , and the Royal Automobile Club site http://www.rac.co.uk/ has
infornmation about specific areas. Let's hope that there is some resolution
of the problem before you are there.  derek
