Totally Useful & Utterly Versatile - That's Why We Love Them!

Thank goodness that you lovely lot never fail to surprise us! Pam (check out her lovely cottage!) got in touch to show us her tabacco leaf drying!

"Drying home grown tobacco leaves - for organic pest control, I hasten to add! Well you do say you can dry anything!!"

Drying leaves plants flowers over an Aga range cookerGrowing tabacco is perfectly legal in the UK, as long as you do not intend on selling it! Pam has only one mission with hers, pest control. A natural and organic way to control soft bodied pests whilst you over winter your plants in the greenhouse. You can soak it in water and use as a spray! 

Do you remember the last time that Pam got in touch? She had us all smiling with her handsomely poised wooden bunny! 

< Here's how to dry blooms, leaves and foliage above your Aga range cooker, a blog from spring but still current!

Katy Boys

Katy is a rural girl at heart. She loves long walks, home cooking, paddling in rivers, warm fires and socks and stomping in leaves with her children. After studying ‘drawing stuff’ at university in Bath, Katy spent 10 years selling wares and managing folk at Habitat in Bath. Welcoming children into her world prompted her to return to drawing things, people and places from home. This led her to us at Blake & Bull and the rest is history. She draws our stuff, provides cuddles for the office dog, and is here to chat to you lovely lot.
