OMG this is going to take me ages, first are they latin names or the common names for plants? or have we got to work it out ourselves lol

Haha DD, no just the common names. I should have said the answers are a mix of flowers, vegetables and herbs. Hope that helps and it doesnt drive you bonkers!

Cinders - it wont take you long, once you get going.

Got over 20 so far.......wish I had known it was vegetables and herbs before , was just going on flowers, good quiz Poppy.

14 Jul, 2012

 

~Glad you're enjoying it DD. Sorry I should have said before, all the answers are straightforward everyday common names of flowers, vegetables and herbs. Now thats far more clues than I was given but hope it adds to your enjoyment. Paul you dont get number of letters!! That would make it far too easy!
Sheilabub is leading so far, she got 25 out of 30. Well done Sheila.

Brilliant PoppyL - that was very clever quiz - it all becomes clear now - I may even try one myself ! Parsnip was a classic!! but they all were

16 Jul, 2012

 

;-))) Paul. Cant claim the credit for thinking the quiz up all by myself. It was given to me on a recent coach trip visit to Hampton Court. It perked up the journey on the way home. I enjoyed it, Im glad you did too. I think the organiser mentioned that she gleaned quite alot from the internet, so maybe that's a good start for constructing your own quiz. I look forward to doing your quiz Paul.
