28 Apr 2013 : In the early 1890s, when my grandfather Arthur Eckardt arrived in New York from Germany, he couldn't speak a word of English. Waiting for him at the dock was his big brother Otto. Arthur came strutting down the gangplank, proud of the big hat he wore: a high crowned, broad billed hat like Otto Von Bismarck's that symbolised that he had risen from an apprentice to a journeyman to a master ironmonger.

28 Apr 2013 : Some plants are grown because they have beautiful flowers, yet there are plants which are treasured even when they never bloom. Ferns belong to the latter category; plant fanciers love them because they are decorative, add freshness to their surroundings, and give a feeling of coolness even during the height of summer. Thailand has more than 700 species of fern, which come in many different forms, so you never run out of new ones to add to your collection. What's more, some ferns form mutations that can at times bear little or no resemblance to the mother plant, which adds to the excitement of growing them.
