Morning all from erein Norfolk,wet and cold ,right Kates standing in for me and planting 5 trees today ish, 4 apples and a green gauge, weve selected a nice part of the lawn ,now can we plant similar to an orchard with the grass put back around the tree ,or do we need to give each tree soil around it to begin with until its settled in for a couple of years, ok how much room do they want between each other , were going to grow to about 12/18 feet high if we can ,that will look really good and the neighbours are all agreeing they will be good at that size and have put in there orders for apples and plums in 2016 hopefully,iv sorted pollination out so no probs there soil and seaweed good to go so hope iv not missed anything ,stakes are ready as well ,,ok good luck all

Hi Dove, saw the specialist last week ,he showed us an amazing picture of my neck, the detail was unbelievable far superior to an xray ,unfortunately more serious than thought i need two ops to remove two vertebrae that are trapping the swelled cord and plates inserting if poss, hopefully soon as im now on a walking frame, left side temporally paralysed till the op i hope,with a bit of luck i might get the hospital in Cambridge he said its the best there is, so im watching that postman daily and the garden sits there waiting, Kate's going to plant all the new trees iv ordered, there will be fruit trees all over the place and lots to do if it goes well and fingers crossed ,thanks for the help matey and dont forget out drink come summer. good luck.. this is a smilie ?;;?
