As a run on from our fruit and veg stall thread is there anyone out there with any knowledge of Tunisian plants, trees be they ornamental or food, medicine producing or used in any commercial production? I`m thinking with all the clothes these days being made out of organic cotton,hemp,bamboo this could be a great opportunity for someone.

Sorry to disappoint you Cas, but like with most things in life I don`t take anything too seriously. That way makes for a stress free and healthy existence.

Wonder if anyone has ever tried exporting the hindi fruit (cactus fruit)? And are the aloe vera plants cultivated and used in lotions and potions here? I've seen a few thistles along in Hergla - probably a Scot who planted them years ago!!!!!!!!!!!

Essem my mum just loves plants and everytime she goes she always brings back a seed or goes into someones garden and cuts a flower and when she gets back she always replants them in her garden.. The best one that we never thought would grow was filfil...Hot chilies.. I am surprised that she has never ever been caught as she carries so many different plants in her suitcase and bags..

Do you know Roulla, my mum used to do the same - wherever we were, she'd take a 'wee cutting' or seeds and brought them on when she returned. Her garden was magnificent!

Hi Roulla and Essem

Growin up in Poland in the 1980 there wasn`t many garden centres, but my mum managed to come back home with house plants cuttings from every office she visited, I remember telling her one thay she be arrested, but she was to clever, sometimes you just didn`t now when she did it, we always had house full of plants and I hated to water them!
I just want to add I love this site its very helpfull and interesting.
