Purple Tree?

Posted: 03/11/2014 at 11:47

Hi D,D as smoke bushes go thats a very nice one,mines about to get a big hair cut as the prev owners no TLC  so it just went tall and spindly so an early autumn prune is the thing i think ,also you have a lot of life still on yours mines got 6 bright red leaves left thats all as the rest is going into sleep mode, I think i,ll chance a stooling if thats what its called so ilI get a new start then i can train it a little better, in summer  and autumn they really are a bush to have in the garden , Iv layered 2 very low branches in July and hope they take so we can have more smokies , good luck

Most of the questions iv asked on here  I already have an idea of the answer probably from the net, what im hoping for is a reply from a person who has actually got first hand experience of what im asking, this is what the forum is about for me. Tips from experience and easier better ways of doing things are a great help, and im sure the regulars must really get """Why do I bother """" when people don't even thank you for your time and trouble even though you do get a kick out of helping someone.Once or twice iv had questions hijacked ,ie:  a garden question ends up with people  talking about  there cats names when they gave no help with the original question in the first place. I do rather find that rude but hey in all this forum is a friendly place to be and i can understand Diggers comments ,and its all right saying dont read it then but you have to actually read something before you agree with it or not thats how it works aint it,,iv had so much help from ere and i dont forget the good comments when I was ill,so good luck all, and its a little lighter erein Munds,  Pub 2nite folks meat raffle good luck Digger  avagooden

Dicemanc, Dont forget to ask your local builders merchants,they would be much cheaper than a G/C Im not sure how big there stones go to but i know they do a decent range of large pebbles etc,

Hin Dicemanc, on the 24 th when you put this up I emailed and phoned several times the company in question, and  Im still waiting, I think your better off with a new supplier, what a way to run a business,  good luck.

Hi Invicta, We were the same,so we asked our G/C who said a Plum "Cambs Gage "" was good for off the tree eating and great for cooking ,at present it looks to be a really good choice ,looking forward to eating, good luck
