Hi Yuccaman007 unfortunately the plant was not really too well ,when i looked the old leaves were full of snails and stuff,after a good clean up i noticed one of the plants was rotting so i removed it ,cleaned it up and planted it ,its now in the greenhouse hopefully recovering, the other part is still on the main stem which now i find is rotting also,so do i cut it of and replant in a pot as before do you think,the original yucca is now loose and i will pull it up soon do you think, when i replanted the other i cleaned it up like i would a pineapple was  this correct,

pollination

Hi Iain it would be good to have im told a crab apple to pollinate as it seems to be an all rounder  almost for pollination,a dwarf stock would do.

Apple Trees - Hopeless Cases?

Posted: 28/08/2014 at 10:27

Talking to the G/C and looking at the charts it seems Crab apples are one of the best pollinators, im adding one next even though my new apple trees are all in the correct pollinator groups im advised the Crab is a good idea, and i know this type of thing frightens people off but a soil test round the trees might show some deficiencies  and save a lot of time and trouble,.

Poisoned trees

Assad,even if the results were positive what good would it do,you could not prove who did it and its the beginning of a neighbors dispute,dont go there ,no-one wins from these things and the thought of living next door to someone your not happy will get worse as time goes on,leave it alone and think of some other way of doing your garden,and dont forget you might be able to keep the trees under good control But what happens if you leave and the new owner doesn't give a dam , this could be on your neighbors mind, nows the time to work out how to get along not build fences (so to speak) good luck Assad
