Welcome to the 12 Days of Xmas Quizzes. We're going to give you a quiz a day, each related (often loosely related) to a line of the song "12 Days Of Christmas". No prizes though, it's just for fun!

Day 11
On the eleventh day of Christmas,
my true love gave to me,
11 pipers piping,
10 lords a leaping,
9 ladies dancing,
8 maids a milking,
7 swans a swimming,
6 geese a laying,
5 golden rings,
4 calling birds,
3 French hens,
2 turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.


And what a fine tradition bagpipes are, especially amongst the hard of hearing! But this quiz isn't about the sounds you can make when torturing small furry mammals, it's about plants! (Hey! We're doing our best here, Maris Piper is a type of potato you know!)

Good luck!
