  2. I made these yesterday – absolutely delicious! It tasted better than any of the desserts I’ve been making lately. I used a lot of olive oil and didn’t crush the cloves, but chopped them. Will definitely make again.

  4. Hello

    I grow a variety of Bonsais and also make them, for a starter, an azalea or ficus would be fine. Dessert Rose is good also. Ficus is the best to start with because it's difficult to kill it if you make mistakes..Bonsai books give you great and simple advice…step by step.

    Good luck
