    He should sell tickets 555

    "Underfloor heating and an automated watering system that triggers monsoon-style showers create a setting in which the plants thrive, pollinated by his father’s tropical butterflies. (Once described as Britain’s greatest living lepidopterist, Clive Farrell breeds butterflies in glasshouses alongside his son’s greenhouses.) 'They are testament that we have got the environment right for a jungle."

    I and Sea would visit . Richard

          There's a very interesting Youtube cookery video produced by Thai Smile, the Hammersmith-based Thai supermarket and media group, which includes a visit to this fascinating farm - see from 5'14" onwards:

            Spring Greens would I guess (Wife improvises with this instead of Kanaa) but it so cheap not necessary to grow.

            I've popped some garlic chives (used in Pad Thai) into a pot but I haven't had much success in the past.

            Horapha will grow but not in Winter, Krapow I haven't had much success with but others have on this board.

            I don't have a greenhouse if you do it's probably a good start.
