Why are there no forest green clothes in the shops? I've just checked....

Next, Debenhams, Monsoon etc

Is it an unfashionable colour?

I'm thinking of dyeing my hair red for autumn/winter and wearing a lot of green.

I can only find nasty limey, yellowy greens and I want deep forest green. I used to wear it a lot 20 years ago as a student - maybe it's fallen out of fashion hmm

Isn't there a saying, red and green should never be seen. (may have that wrong mind you wink).

Red & Green, it comes from our nautical history as an Island race, if you see Red and Green you are seeing both Port & starboard navigation lights of a ship heading directly toward you......and you are in deep do-do.

That scoop is lovely but when you click on it, it doesn't take you to it sad

And I don't think Kew do 18's.
