Hi Dove ,Kates just finished planting our 2 new apples as directed by the site foremen (me ) (through your advice) and look really good nicely surprised to find really good loamy light well draining light brown soil with a hint of sand,also all the rain we had only reached about 8 inches down then it was nicely damp ,Now how much water do you think per tree iv given them half a gallon so far ?? And did you read Bob the Gardener,s now a LEGEND ,he will probably start charging for services rendered soon ,i can just see it Monty and Bob the legend,
And as advised Kate gets a reward in the local tonight Vodka ,n,Coke n a pintobitta B lucky Alan

Blueberries

Hi Cherry,there are a good few blueberries to think of, iv been looking for some time,got some good advice from Bob the Gardener,some are self fertile some not, so make sure you know which is which (BBC Gardening) on line is good it also has a video on it, it seems bluecrop is very popular Nelson and Duke ,but it depends eat of the bush or jams as they do vary in taste, Patriot sounds pretty good as well ,this year im going for 2 or 3 mixed, in big pots they seem to like pots, and like to have other blueberries around soil important im useing J/I no 3 ericaceous and seaweed so good luck,

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
