aldi fig tree

Posted: 07/07/2014 at 18:16

Hi Graham, i was given an Aldi fig 18 month's ago, it was about 18 inches tall,its now 4 feet and has three figs now turning darker and ripening, and  about 30 smaller figs ,it started a trend in our new garden and now i have 14 new healthy young figs in pots,(from a full size fig tree in the garden of the house we bought last year,)) everything you need to know you will find on this site ,http://www.readsnursery.co.uk/plum-and-gage-trees/   go to fig tree advice, with watering just keep it moist but later as it grows they love a good feed and when big enough to fruit in spring treat it to a good feed with lots of potash  ,all this years cuttings are now about 14 inches tall and outside hardening off and getting some rain and sun, the link will explain everything  and you might  get hooked on growing figs and if you have never eaten a fresh home grown one your in for a nice surprise.go for it and good luck Alan4711

Pauline Hi I am Alans partner I had an abscess a few weeks ago the best thing I found was a hot waterbottle on my face along with painkillers also honey rubbed onto my gum gave some relief other suggestions I was given were a cooled teabag held onto the gum for five mins and repeated as the tannic acid is supposed to relieve infection best of luck

not enough bees

Winnecat, if you need to attract bees ,try planting phacelia near them, they grow easy and are a great green manure to dig in with the beans after your done and bees just love them,

Hi Bekkie, i followed Monty on rose cuttings a few weeks ago and have 10 good ones ,they are yellow, deep deep burgundy red and a very nice peachy salmon, im not colour coded so the mix i hope will look natural, im hoping to just completely cover the soil with rose friendly plants so it looks good when the roses have gone to kip Hopefully,
