BizzieB, love those rosehips

FG, that combination is stunning, it was a very bold move to paint the fence black, but it really works

Shabby Chic Anyone?

 For sunflowers, I would use this enamel jug (I put the egg in the pic so you can see the scale of it)

Yum yum

I've just harvested Crystal Apple and didn't peel it and I'm still alive!

Can soft fruit bushes be transformed by pruning into cordons?

Verdun, I would like to stop my blackcurrent from getting too large and 'leggy' what would you recommend?

I became a bit of a star in my neighbourhood as I was giving people small amounts of home grown Apricots! I think I had 40 this year. If I improve my pollination techniques with a fine paint brush, maybe I will get 60 next year! Grown in my lean-to greenhouse

I just love taking produce round to friends and neighbours. In the last week it has been bunches of Sweet Peas (you have to pick them every day for them to keep flowering) and punnets of sweet red dessert gooseberries.

Never planted veggies or fruits - need advice

OL, the cucumbers are Crystal Apple, Mr. Fothergills seeds. The packet says that as they ripen they become deep yellow. I would not like to eat them any more ripe than they are now as the seeds are already quite large.

BM, that is Stock in the jug, the painting behind the Sweet Peas of Phlox dates from, I think, Edwardian times and I'm not quite that old so it isn't one of mine

BeausM, the cucumbers taste splendid. Have to catch them youngish or the seeds are quite large I like the fact that they look like goose eggs

Did I review 1500 plants in my sleep?

Why does it say I've reviewed all these plants?
