Hucknall is quite correct mi ducks , Ariel way it says,   AND i was born on Linton Rise Sneinton Dale Nottingham. And I remember the first coloured bus conductor to arrive ,he came from Trinidad, and he was so well liked ,first thing in the morning he sang non stop while collecting the tickets and always said Taaaaanks,in the end we were all saying it back to him for fun his laugh was contagious ,a good way to start the day and  a very nice chap, In time i moved on and over the water to Bread and lard land, im posh now cant you tell.I dont say yo anymore instead of you see posh

blackspot on roses

Posted: 22/09/2014 at 09:44

Hi Richard, from lots of passed discussions here its bad news,Bob t/g is at present trying to get rid of black spot on all his roses by grafting,iv thrown away most of mine except two which iv cut right back and moved to 2 buckets in solitary  for 2 months and im spraying one  with seaweed and one with NEEM oil,both safe and animal friendly, i can only wait to see the results which i shall put on here.It would seem most people are now buying new roses ie; David Austin which im told are spot free for maybe 8/10 years then buy new again or hopefully a cure is found by then or some of our friends on here might have better results in there gardens ,if so im sure they will tell us, seems its a waiting game at the moment.Good Luck

Well Damsel it seems to me youv got lots of common sense and are definitely going the right way,,try to remember the Nettle feed is very high in Potash For instance, flowering or fruiting plants need the right nutrients to help sustain the growth of the bloom or the fruit. They need phosphorus to promote growth of the root and buds, as well as relatively larger volumes of potash to encourage healthy fruit or flower production. If you give flowering or fruiting plants too much nitrogen, the chances are that you’ll just encourage an abundance of leafy growth – and not much more. Not ideal for promoting flower blooms or a heavy fruit yield! . Comfrey is a little more balanced if you can get it,just adding potash to Nettle tea sounds good but the high nitrogen is Still there so doesn't work .a basic 15 to 1 comfry/nettle feed is a good alrounder . leaf mould as others have said takes ages but if you have the leaves and room i would go for it as leaf mould is wonderful stuff and when youv done it yourself the result is a personal triumph it really is. this year we moved house and inherited a full grown NON fruit producing fig tree,we trimmed it fed a comfry 15 to 1 and potash 2 gallon twice a week and figs are already appearing , home made foods are the way,TV,s Beechgrove tested bought food against Comfry comfry won. sorry to go on.bit dull erein Norfolk

Hi D, if you are lucky enough to have fresh ash ,please be careful the wood was Not treated as this can cause problems ,if it is then a box of Potash/potassium,from the Garden center is ok.  I notice your garden is a large well stocked one,perhaps a good way forward might be thinking of the seasons to come as well as now maybe because of the size of the garden and cost,making your own food would be best,IE: Nettle Tea ,Comfry Tea, is all you would need ,Comfrey tea is all i use as a basic food for all the garden,for fruit trees /bushes i add a little Potash to the feed, At the beginning of Spring a good dose of Fish,Blood an Bone is what almost everybody does.,iv just bought FBB end of season half price for next year,box of potash will last me for ages, any probs let us know ,PS potassium was called potash as the people years ago saved in in pots,wasnt that interesting,good luck
