ONE imports rare fertiliser and the other wants to grow unique plants from it.

Now thanks to your Times, Michael Whitham, who appeared on popular TV show Dragon's Den last October with his bat guano fertiliser, met Times columnist and world map garden expert Tom Hart Dyke after returning from Indonesia with his stock. In spite of a knock-back from the dragons, Michael set up Caveman's Bat Guano Fertiliser shop in Beckenham and has already enjoyed much interest in his novel product.

Tom has promised to test the product in his famous World Garden at Lullingstone Castle, Eynsford.

Mr Whitham added: "It was an absolute pleasure to meet Tom.
