Get another room! Should you have a dedicated sex den in your home?6h Get another room! Should you have a dedicated sex den in your home?
Could a love nest other than the bedroom spice up your relationship – or is a sex drawer all you need? Here’s what the experts say As if the housing crisis were not acute enough, it turns out that your home probably does not have the one room that promises a life of excitement and a long-lasting, fulfilling relationship: a shag room. A dedicated space for such purposes is the “hot new trend for sex in 2020”, according to the

How to grow a chilli with your kind of kick36h How to grow a chilli with your kind of kick
Bring on some warmth by sowing chillis. There are hundreds of varieties and strengths, and decorative ones, too The first signs of spring might well be weeks, if not months, away, so for those impatient for warmer days ahead there is one summer crop you can get sowing right now: chillies. Despite having grown up in southeast Asia, where we can eat chillies three times a day, it wasn’t until I moved to the UK that I really became fascinated by the enormous array of weird and wonderful varieties out there, especially from small, indie growers. With literally hundreds of varieties, in an almost infinite variety of flavour, use and spice-level, I believe there must be a chilli for everyone – even people who think they don’t like chillies! So here’s my rundown of niche varieties you will never be able to buy in stores.

Mystery bulbs mean spring will be a bigger surprise38h Mystery bulbs mean spring will be a bigger surprise
Green shoots, obsessive checking – and the longed-for hope of the first signs of the growing season I grew up in a magical land of meadow snowdrops, woodland bluebells and hedgerow primroses. There were riverside banks of wild garlic, which I loved for the flowers but was repelled by the smell – it was a sheltered English 60s childhood in very rural Devon. I guess I have been a bit sniffy about growing bulbs in pots ever since, though it has been many years since we had our own flower garden. Winter pots on the roof terrace were for green leaf, multiple shades and colours of hellebore.

May I have a word about… why even estate agents don’t deserve to be shuttered | Jonathan Bouquet38h May I have a word about… why even estate agents don’t deserve to be shuttered | Jonathan Bouquet
It’s terrible news that shops are closing down all over the country, but we don’t need an ugly word for the process I have never felt the need to address the subject of estate agents. True, theirs is a despised calling, as my daughter discovered when she briefly became one and had instant pariah status bestowed on her. But reading about the lack of office space in the City, I began to share some of the revulsion. According to Mat Oakley, the head of commercial property research at Savills: “It is going to be a very tough year for office tenants. If you’ve bought into wellness and ESG [environmental, social and governance] and productivity, you obviously want the best of the best – you want accessible buildings, you want buildings that your staff can work flexibly.” I think, reading between the lines, this means that clients want the most space for the least amount of money.
