Hi all,

does anyone know if there are any sloes growing in Crystal Palace anywhere that I can pick? Or does anyone have any going spare? I just need enough to make 2 bottles of gin for a recipe feature next week, so if anyone has any in their garden, I'm sure we can come to some kind of agreement... Failing that, parks and hedgerows under the cover of darkness will do... I have a swag bag marked 'SLOES'.
Thanks,

Nico

Thanks for looking Posie. I've actually ordered some on eBay would you believe? Not as much fun nor as romantic, but needs must...
