Funnily enough Dove, my sun has gone too  

Hosta, can I borrow OH? I have a lot of weeds so he'll be suitably entertained  and busy   

P'doc, I too need to do less looking and planning and take more action

Gosh what a lovely day  

Clothes clean, lawn mowed, garden watered () and some bench holding down as well  

Lily, of course you can have a go with Poldark  

Fruit trees - plum and apple

Couldn't find the label, but remember it saying the ever-so-helpful 'patio plum'!  (The tree had the label on when I moved in) Guess I'll find a paint brush and give nature a hand, just in case

Apologies for the delay in replying, have been in the garden  

My apple tree is in the ground. I will try the Vaseline trick and avoid ant powder 

Will see if I can find the label for the plum tree. I didn't plant it so am not sure what type it is

Not sure if I should tell you that I have 2!!  Maybe I should compost . . . .

Thanks Zoomer 

I did have some crossing branches on the plum but removed them  Am wondering if I should assist the pollinators with my paintbrush  I don't do anything to encourage or discourage the bees from my garden - neither of my neighbours have plants in their gardens so they should find loads to enjoy in mine 

Re the apple, it has been plagued by ants for the last couple of years  Any tips on stopping them?

Hi all 

2 questions if I may.....

Plum tree - it has blossom on it for the second year in a row  Is there anything I can do to encourage it to fruit?

Apple tree - for the last two years it has been plagued by aphids. Is there anything I can do to prevent them from arriving this year?

Many thanks
