Cobnuts are in season. How to use them?

All we do is lightly roast them and store in an airtight jar. I eat an ounce of them every day to help with my cholesterol control.

The biggest problem with beds in the glasshouse is removing and replacing the soil in them which you really need to do every few years or risk a build up of pathogens which reduce the cropping.

Please help me identify

Not C, purpurescens either. Leaves are wrong. That is a fairly standard C. persicum. Kept in the right conditions it will flower for months. Not hardy though so once temps drop below 5c it is going to struggle.

Plant id please - red berries

Could be Lonicera maackii. In which case, no the berries are not eidble to humans.

Young one certainly could. they are also very good climbers. All you can really do is to protect the tree. Encircle  it with wire netting or if your pocket runs to it try an electrified fence.
