As far as The Fromage goes I think its a great little Skunk and an excellent free-gift and still grow a few here and there although I'm more a Psycho fan meself. But It isn't my fave Skunk ever or even close to it,all my best Skunks were bought and selected from SensiSeed's in Dam or were later filial generations of Sam's seed's handed down to me by Elder's(my best ever Skunk was Orange Skelter which was a Sk1 x CaliO male BX'ed to a Sk1 lady,I would swap every other Sk1 I've ever tried..including Cheese and ISS for a cut of that now)
E.M. I grew a pack out of that Skunk3 from Sunlight along with most of their strains and I found it to be a slightly more Sativa option than their Skunk1(which was very quick for a skunk,very OrangeBud looking and had a Mongy buzz) but Sk3 was a crappy yeilder and was pretty much a sweet,up kinda skunk but nothing special or distinctive like cheese. I think their Sk1 was the more Roadkill of the 2 but nothing to write home about either...Sensi's stuff was way,way better in every respect at the time....Although I was a big fan of the NL(Stocky and Stinky and Piney/sweet) we got from Sunlight and their SuperSkunk(fruity and huge buds) and SkunkHaze(Got excellent Stud male from that but no Girl to keep) both had Rockin' pheno's too! A couple of their strains were appalling and hay-like as well if I remember rightly but they were cheap so not complaining!!!!
I remember the Stratford Sunlight being around b4 21st CG as well and the Leicester Sunlight deffo pre-dated 21st CG by a good while,selling mostly Lights originally from what I recall....
I shopped intermittently at both for a while(was too paranoid then to return to same shops too quickly!lol).But the shop I miss most was TropicalHouseCultivation in Camberwell(not the other T.H.C that had a shop in Midlands). It was in a small terraced house behind the Hospital and had a Sunflower picture in the window that was the only way to find it as it had no signs etc.....The fella there used to give me such good prices it was almost silly and he'd source almost anything u wanted that he didn't stock...He used to get me an Orchid Grow-media called Goldenwool from Denmark that was hands down my favorite media,it was 2 diff grades of RW with Clay and Lignite to buffer the PH and stop loose fibers...Marvellous stuff!
He carried on doing phone orders and meets for a year or so after the shop closed in the mid 90's but I lost touch after a while to my regret...Anyone remember that place at all,I think they advertised in Viz for a little while as well??? Luck and Lumens JBo

Establishing goals and choosing the appropriate germplasm are essential to a successful breeding program. Assuming that you will work with only two populations, choose two that have good qualities but differ enough so that they will complement and hopefully display hybrid vigor when crossed-C7T.

LOL Yes, I remember THC in Camberwell, well.... A nice but mad Hippie in a squat on Southwell rd undercutting everybody else, but partly by using the cheapest bits around... my mate/mentor back then really did not approve and I got moaned at for buying 'rubbish that needed fixing'...... I was there when w****** were coming in griefing him for kit playing up and felt very sorry for him, he was trying to sort out people as cheaply as possible for all the right reasons, but was selling kit to some shady sorts who were earning thousands with it. I seem to remember he was the first person to sell Blooom nutrient, a powder called Eco Grow IIRC, ah, the memories, VIZ changed my life, I spotted Sunlight Systems adverts there first :-)

Wow they r a blast from the past,thanks for making me feel old again Doc lol! Oh! The memories.......
Chaos I thought u might remember them....Yeah he was deffo trying to do the right thing but a little lost at THC, but I used to get what I wanted ordered usually as He did sell some cheap crap as standard...but as u say he was the first place I got various products as he would go out of his way to source stuff for me(None of the other shops did for me then,they just forced u onto the products they earnt most from!)...He probably sorted me out bcos he dealt with so many others that were Hot and Dodgy at the time!
I would often go up to Midlands for any bulk buys back then though as the shops North of Watford were always cheaper and less Hot back then.

oh the good old days indeed ,sunlights lights were fire hazards if i remember rightly ,i think they closed because of it ,we never bought these lights
,in 1993 we were fetching stuff from Holland by the vanload for ouselves and other grower friends ,this prompted me and a friend to start up a growshop ,we stocked the shop (at great exspense)and before we had chance to get insurance and open ,someone broke in and stole everything , Growell opened just after

anyone remember the "bush telegraph" ?

what about "leni" ? the old bloke in pershore who taught at pershore college of horticulture,fuck me that man could grow weed

memories lol its suprising to still have any lol

You lot make me feel young still,,, bow-down to ALL old-school ganja cats in the house
Without you folk the UK scene wouldn't be what it is today

N.B> Sunlight was just like McDonalds,, they had a shop everywhere,, you could only look and touch it if you bought it style,, just in-case it went wrong. That shop also had major issues with under 18's .. i know,, i was one of them ... even used to try make yout pay for the catalogues. lmfao Those where the days

If you look a little closer, you'll see that what you're describing is a Los Angeles thing... the "i'm better than you...'elite' boolshit"... even if its not transpiring IN los angeles, the vibe and culture of empty "im-better-than-you-ness" and fake tits. Other than the young kids who buy into this bullshit the same way they have been buying into shit since their 'Baribie" days, its unfair to characterize all American's as competely vulgar.

I am a gringo from new york who has lived in Manhattan, Los Angeles, New Orleans, 5 European cities and Central America. I have sold crap E's and Soapbar to sunburnt British package holiday-makers on Ibiza and up and down the Costa del Sol and called them "White Doves" and "Morocan 0-0" respectively. Same mo-tards, different accent.
