Growing by leaps and bounds

 

Sir, – Further to Frank McNally’s Irishman’s Diary and references to the fertiliser 10-10-20 (October 10th), I recall arriving at my parents’ house with my two tall children for a visit. My father always said, “You will have to cut back on feeding them 10-10-20.” – Yours, etc,

DEIRDRE KEANE,

Bishopstown,

Cork.
