A number of fans showed their support, met een skrif: “Unfortunately not surprising- I had two different things ‘explainedto me by two different men down at the allotments yesterday- I’d not asked for their ‘advice’.

I didn’t need it andthey were both utterly wrong!! Sexist and stereotypical gender role assignments still prevail.”

Another fan joked: “Kitchen utensils often find their way into the garden if they’re the best thing for the job!”

’n Derde het ingestem: “Also a bit silly to assume that you don’t keep old kitchen utensils around for gardening.

Hy het aan Radio Times gesê: “One of the things that I, and people like me have been banging on about for ages, is that cutting grass burns lots of fossil fuel, makes a filthy noise and is about the most injurious thing you can do to wildlife.

“Whereas letting grass grow, wat is, Katie Price trek aan as 'n NUN om te onthul dat sy by OnlyFans aangesluit het, a pretty passive thing to do, is probably the single most effective thing you can do in any garden of any size to encourage particularly insect life, but also small mammals, invertebrates, reptiles.”
