Lash go to RHS fig cuttigs ,i took 10 last year ,some into water, some into J.Innes no 3 with 20%extra grit all are now 6 to 8 inches high healthy and just dropping there leaves for winter in the unheated greenhouse ,they will spend there first year in containers, they love nettle and comfry tea and seaweed also works well, this will get the tree growing good strong roots ,stems and leaves, second year in spring change to high Potash feed to encourage fruit and into pig pits and Bobs your wosit

today i drove to Bacton just down the coast from Mundesley where we now live ,the road was closed off but people just drove through, cars were parked everywhere and people were standing around just stunned at the sight of total devastation left by the sea, some houses that sat comfortably looking out to sea now stood dangerously close to the waves,just waiting for the next time the storms might come,,in the field over the road were scattered the personal belongings of these people some of them now in the care off loved ones , on the way home I called into the Ship ,my local and chatted to Duncan a new friend now looking after two of the unfortunate people now homeless and uninsured.
he said they were taking ,one day at a time.

Hi Dove ,the strawbs would be really great, right this second were waiting for the solicitors to call saying weve exchanged or not ( just the same as yesterday ) and ask for a completion date, when we have a pint you will not believe our story and the Incompetence of estate agents And ( not ours)solicitors, you could make a tv comedy about it but for it not being so funny for us, anyway iv guessed PM is pers mess,so im sorting that as my bit dont let me do things that other people on here can, B lucky Alan
