P'doc, you need one of those dogs that can fetch beer from the fridge!

Are they any good now

Awww Barry, what a lovely way to remember your neighbour! This lot are talking complete sence and have given you good advice, but in these circumatances, i would be inclined to give them a go, they may be fine having come from a keen gardener, if they do show signs of being infected with a virus, you can disgard them then. Its sad to see a garden broken up

Sorry guys, i know im soppy, but its got to be worth a go?

Be sure to plant them at the right depth, or you will be forever picking the stems up from the floor!

P'doc that holiday sounds like a dream come true! You are lucky

Apple tree dilemma

You can buy ready to use muck (if that dosent sound too weird!), but its about a fiver a bag, i have a feeling you will be hooked on this grow your own lark as soon as you get your first apples!
Not sure where you live, how able bodied you are, how much you want to spend, but if you want a few bags of muck, i use a site called creativegardenideas, if you spend 30 pounds, delivery is free to most parts of the country
Very excited for you

I agree with Runnybeak, you might be lucky, its early days, the plant will have gathered the energy for the flowers last year, so if the buds havent been hit, then you should be ok

help me please

Would be a nice name for a bra though...much sexier than a "doreen", no offence to any doreens out there

Tomatoes and cucumbers

If you are really bothered, depending on the variety you could grow the cucumbers out doors, but like the others said, i never had a problem when i grew them in the greenhouse
