Identifying Seeds (Help Needed)

I've found this photo of the fruit.

 I do remember that the smell of the fruit itself wasn't particularly pleasant but, the taste was delicious

Could you put a coin or something to show size. ?

they look large  so poss peony, but its not a fruit?

This is 100%  a fruit seed/pip as my wife has just told me. We ate it in Spain


late last year. That doesn't mean to say that the fruit is from Spain. It's possibly an exotic type.

I was given these these seeds about 6 months ago and I now cannot remember what they are.... should have labelled them.

All I can say is, that I think they are fruit seeds


Any help in the identification much appreciated...



Victorian Plum Trees

Posted: 11/04/2014 at 17:33


My neighbor  on the next plot is leaving unfortunately but fortunately for me he has given me the two plum trees in the images. I need to dig them up to transplant on my plot.

What is the best method to dig up (how far from the trunk) and, best method to replant.  Also when is the best time to dig them up?

My concern is, that when the next person comes along and takes over the plot he or she may claim them if I


don't get them out within the next couple of weeks.

Hedge Trimmer Plug Needed

Posted: 11/04/2014 at 17:25


Can anyone point me in the right direction where to purchase a plug and cable for this hedge trimmer. It's quite an old one.

The plug pins are flat as can be seen on the machine.


Toms too early ?

Posted: 31/03/2014 at 18:45

I would say it's too early for an unheated greenhouse at this time of year. I did mine early one time in my shed. Left them near the window and then, a sharp drop in temps just saw them wilt and die.


I don't think they look droopy at all or, leggy. Remember that when you plant them you can bury them up to the bottom set of leaves which will promote a good root system and a strong stem.


If I'm wrong, the experts will pick up on the thread so don't worry too much.

That's the product. Where can it be purchased? Places like B & Q or garden centres?


Is it expensive?









Kill Grass and Weeds

Posted: 14/03/2014 at 19:24

I know that somewhere on this forum there is a product that can be applied to weeds/grass to prepare an area for an allotment but, i cannot find it. Some kind of phosphate product that you apply and then cover the ground in plastic.

Grateful for any response

Runner bean root disease?

I was tidying up today and pulled up the roots from my runner plants from last year. The roots were all deformed I thought it was club root but everywhere I look online it says this doesn't effect beans.

I forgot to take a photo and chucked them in the landfill bin so I've tried to draw what it looked like, maybe someone will recognise?


Does anyone know what this is? Should I avoid planting beans there again? Or is this NORMAL?!?!??!!!

See the thread below. I also dug some that were like this
