My Blog Archive

I have written more than 468 articles since I first created this website in 2008 which I've set out by month in the first table below so that you can quickly locate items relevent to the time of year. Or, you can use the search facility to look for items of interest.

Blog Keyword/Phrase Search

Enter the word or phrase you are looking for below..

This search will display up to 25 items. You can search for an occurrence of single or multiple words. For example (salvia rutilans) will return all articles which have either word in the text. If a required word appears in more than half of the articles you will not get any result for that word. To better refine your search you can use some simple additional techniques. If you want to find an exact phrase enclose the phrase in inverted commas: e.g. ("salvia rutilans"). You can also ensure that specific words must appear in the search results by appending a plus sign e.g. (+pink). To ensure that a word is not in the search results use a minus sign e.g. (-green). A trailing asterisk acts as a "wildcard" to match any words beginning with the search word e.g. (green*) will return articles that may have words like "greenish" and so on.
