CHRONICLE Special Supplement BARNSLEY
A way to coax the kids out to play DURING the summer we try to encourage children to play outdoors rather than being cooped up in the house. A simple area of grass, however, often fails to coax children from the comfort of their bedrooms. But if you have a Flights of Fantasy playhouse in your garden the challenge might be getting your child back indoors.
Based on a farm in Norfolk, Flights of Fantasy was established by Russell Bowlby who has a clear passion for providing children with the ultimate in play and recreation. In addition to the original Tudor cottage – now a best-seller – the company’s portfolio of childsized properties has expanded to include playhouses beyond a
child’s wildest dreams, such as castles, fortresses and pirate ships. Miniatures of the real thing, cottage playhouses can be built on one or two levels offering features of a ‘proper’ house with two storeys. And the extravagance doesn’t end there. Extras for these dream buildings include similarly-scaled wooden furniture for kitchens, bed-
rooms and living rooms as well as scramble nets, platforms, poles, slides, flags and monkey bars. Even heating and lighting can be provided, allowing the playhouses to be enjoyed all year round. Furthermore, for the ultimate finishing touch, Flights of Fantasy will landscape an individual garden around the playhouse — after all what’s a house without a garden?

leaves. The only way to treat the problem is to destroy the plant, so prevent it by keeping the number of aphids to a minimum. Recommended varieties of lilies include Casablanca, Muscadet, Stargazer, Chianti and African Queen.
• GEKKOS - LEOPARD, CRESTED • ANOLES • KOI • CORALS • FROGS • MARINES
Lilies appreciate being well fed and appreciate garden compost or some well-rotted manure being worked into the planting hole. They also need good drainage, so planting the bulbs on a layer of grit will help prevent rot. If your lilies are to be planted in containers, plant one bulb in a 20cm pot or three bulbs in a 25cm to 30cm pot. Containers should always be at least 20cm deep and filled with compost. Shoots will start to appear in the spring, water lilies regularly at this point, but never completely soak them. Tall lilies with graceful stems will need support, try not to pierce the bulb when driving the stake in to the ground. Pests that lilies suffer from can be vicious. The bright red lily beetle will destroy your entire collection.
- LEOPARD, CRESTED • ANOLES • KOI • CORALS • FROGS •
LILIES are not only beautiful, but their fragrance can make the flowers irresistible. A group of three or five is enough to fill an average patio with scent on a warm summer evening. Lilies are ideal if you have a small garden because they make the most of vertical space. Place a pot by your back door or near an open window and let the strong, natural fragrance fill your home. You should also find a good selection of bulbs in garden centres and other plant retailers. The best bulbs are big and plump. The roots should not be dry, and they also should be round and firm. If you wish to plant lilies in a border, try to place the bulbs so they grow through ground cover or low-growing plants. They like their heads in the sun and their feet in the shade. Recommended time to plant is autumn, but most bulbs are sold in the spring. Like most other bulbs, lilies like to be grown in groups and are perfect for creating blocks of colour.

heritage. Before Morocco reclaimed its independence in 1956, the country was divided into Spanish and French zones. It was the French, who ruled the main cities and governed more closely, who had the most lasting effect, and French is the language spoken by all educated Moroccans. The French built Villes Nouvelles alongside the four Imperial Cities, created Casablanca — the commercial capital — and chose Rabat, on the Atlantic coast, to be the new seat of government. A brief visit to the coast is best enjoyed in the north around Tangier, as it is very pleasant and still shaped by its old port status. Inland, where the real interest of Morocco lies, the outstanding cities are Fes and Marrakesh. The greatest of the four imperial capitals of
