A Cautionary Tale .....

I do so agree with the suggestions that have been made How many times have I said 'if only I had known; when plants have become rampant Berghill makes avery apt point when he mentions plant fair sales, I think many are just interested in gettinga sale rather than the performance of a plant Forums like this do help to promote awareness of such things

I'm sure it will revive, just hang on in. Many of the problems are as others have said, weather related, especially in this part of the countryN.E. , where  frequent strong winds have damaged the plants and dried the soil too quickly.

A Cox tree is unreliable but if you want a Cox flavour try a Sunset which is a Cox cross. The fruit is superb and it is self fertile. This may be too late for Jess but may be of help to others.

In case anyone has missed the news, Chris Beardshaw has been invited to join the presenters of   Beechgrove. Looking forward to April. I now live in the north of England and find the programme very relevant, however when I lived in the South I still found much to enjoyabout the programme.

Small Wildlife pond

Enjoy your pond Erica 938, I'm sure you will get lots to interest you from it.

I was looking at a pond mud cleaner. This vacum fits on the end of a hose and works without destroying wildlife. Has anyone tried this? Thankyou for your replies
