There is a story, perhaps apocryphal, about early 'translation machines'. One test these systems are given is to translate a passage from one language into another and then back again to the original language. The story goes that the machine was asked to translate the phrase "The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak" from English to Russian and back again. It came back as "The vodka is good but the meat is rotten."
Is Google Translate any better?

I seen it spelt that way too Blowin but the way i spelt is what is on the packet. A little misunderstanding on the Google translate thing. The link I meant was for the Ukrainian web site that mail orders the seed. There is a translate to English option within the web site and it reads just fine. The laptop is out in the van and I am too tired to start looking through it tonight. Maybe tomorrow. I thought I sent you the website name a few months ago Blowin.

Don't think so, Guv. I'd have saved it as a 'Favourite'

I'm afraid they're all written in Cyrillic lettering but, as previously suggested, I've found three varieties on Gardens4u so may try them.

Something I've never thought about for brassicas, they say they'll store in a frost free environment. Can you really store them?

There is an option to translate to English on both home pages.

Hi Mairead, I took this photo of the geranium today. It is just starting to change colour. I think it's lovely.

In Autumn, yes that would look good. But this has pink flowers in Spring, Summer. Don't know about you, but to me pink and orange does my head in! Yeuch. Laughing

Thank you very much for this Sue, it looks beautiful, we may not have enough sunshine for this on the road side of the hedge but I have an idea that this would go well on the lawn side of the hedge. It would get more light here, I was thinking of a hydrangea for here but that would possibly be too big. A geranium like yours would be more suitable.
