Gardenjeannie I have heard that too about asparagus and planted it one of our gardens, unfortunately we had to move, even before harvesting So tend to think that it's true but I am a little superstitious. Stupidly planted more in our next garden and moved again, I was totally convinced it was true, although we didn't sell the house I was unhappy where we moved to and are moving back to house and asparagus bed! Now I'm totally confused about that superstition.
Just planted an asparagus bed here - hope we won't be going anywhere
Edd, get some sleep!
Hampshire lass - really? you moved back to the same house!
Yes MrsGarden. Really, moved back to the same house. We rented it out for a year but didn't settle in our new place, missed friends, garden and central location. Very happy to be back. I have no idea what that means about asparagus tho. Time will tell again I suppose. Perhaps Chicky can prove the asparagus old wives tale wrong and stay close to your asparagus bed.
Pissenlit (literally means to wet the bed!) is dandelion in French, yes. That's because they drink it as a tisane - it is a known diuretic - and blimey is it effective!
Oh really? so that explains it
Yes- I stupidly bought some in France once, thinking I could with a bit of a detox...then had a vat-full over the day and was up half the night on the loo
I love the one about elder.
I've never heard of the asparagus one, my OH bought some last year. Its seems to be growing well, I hope its not true, I don't want to move!!
