Really enjoyed Noel Burdetts talk on herbs, one big revelation for me... the reasons my shallots, chives etc bend is from overwatering... this family prefer it dry.

I personally was not enthused with the other presentation, but did learn new things, one tip... If you are growing fruit trees from cuttings then keep them in pots, if grafting then put them in the garden directly, dig your hole wide rather than excessively deep, you can hill the tree up to provide good drainage.
