Re: Long term forecasting 'cracked'

So they've admitted it's all guesswork but now think they've got software that will make them guess right 13% more effectively?

Re: What is the growth rate of a mature Chammy?

I think DB has a Chamaerops Humilis 'Arborescens' that has grown more quickly than the average standard Humilis. Perhaps the single trunked variety has a faster rate of growth?

Re: Gogglebox's Garden Blog:Year Three
