Talkback: Fig trees

Morning all from erein Norfolk Im  watching Kate putting Pampas grass int a big varse which up till yesterday looked great in the garden till the winds arrived and flattened half of them,  Right im following this chat as iv got a three foot Turkey to fig pit this year, as advised by Dove she,s asleep in a pot in the greenhouse (fig) all wrapped up snug with lots of very tiny not even pea size fruit which as they grow later i have decided to  remove so it consentrates on just settleing for the first year in the pit then let it go after that. also got 5 good cuttings for pots and an older bigish tree that im told never fruits so a one third and 3 year plan on that one with loads of cuttings as i do it,i see 8 inch fig plants around  in the shops costing far too much,when im back in action ill put up how many new turkeys i have and anyone passing us erein Mundesley will be welcome to a coffee and a fig, a pressy

good luck all

Wisteria and dogs - poisonous?

Posted: 13/02/2014 at 10:08

A few years ago i tennented a nice pub in Melton Mowbry area, my next door neighbours dog a beautifull Labrador dog would when he felt like it daytime or evenings push the front door open walk in have a look around then come to the bar and sit and look at me with those big loving eyes they have,i would have to say hello to him and then say "come  on then" he would come round the bar and put his pore on the crisp box he fancied that time, and his choice did vary, id say ok and he would  go off with a bag to the log fire carpet to open and eat them,never leaving a mess,he was  very popular in the pub and indeed the whole village including his visits to the school classrooms, a friend has just acuired a Labradoogle hes big heavy and a bundle of fun, 

Not sure this is appropriate here, but you should all know!!!

Edd i think due to the lack of responce to your thread  perhaps people might think  you have an ulterior motive with this, but yes it is given out free,so if people who didnt know about it might want to follow your online address but it might need doing quickly,

good luck and im retired no ulterior motive here Alan4711 

Get if off your chest.

Morning all,i find it strange ,this country has nice rivers, lovely canals, and resavours that go dry in the summers some mainly relying just on rainfall, now am i missing somthing here or is  rocket science to build resavours where they can be fed by rivers and canals with lock gates for as and when needed, cant the farms be relocated to better and safer land that doesnt flood and given a hand starting up  again just like the miners were helped to relocate years ago from up north, why dont we use the resavours more for sailing,fishing,hollidaying, they would make wonerfull holliday venues, the kids would love them log cabins, chalets, caravans, indoor persuit for rainy days, and the water sodden areas would then be under control the water either going into the resavours or along the canals down to the sea, and who wouldnt want a break on a canal boat, the canals them selves built right would be  a nice place to live  and all this creating thousands of jobs building,catering,new pubs ,shops, cafes, and all bringing in revenue in different ways instead of  the powers at be saying theres going to be more of all this weather in the future and they say monies no problem, well get building then NOW
