    Hi Norman.Lovely, vibrant site, especially for people who love gardening (like me!). Your passion for gardening jumps out from every page and you offer so much information that is useful for everyone, from beginner to advanced. Everything is nicely laid out and clear. However, I did see one small glitch – on the Eden’s Garden page, where the text overruns into the pic of all the fruit. I’m sure it will be easy to fix. Thanks for a great read, though 🙂

    Hi there Norman,

    Great article and great site! Thanks for sharing those facts with us.

    I know of one very interesting fact Resveratrol, found in red grapes is a compound that helps with erectile dysfunction!

    May ask is it true that once a vine stops growing it dies or is that an old wives tale?

    1. Norman says:

      Hello Derek it so good to meet you, a vine may stop growing because the plant itself may have gone into a dormant period but that does not mean that the vine is dead. A sure way to know is to scrape the top layer, if after you scrape the top layer and the inside or bottom layer is brown it may be that the vine is dead but if their is some green in it the vine is very much alive, hope this helps all the best to you and have a good day.
